CONSECRATION OF CANADA AND THE MINISTRY OF THE PRIESTS OF THE SOCIETY OF SAINT PIUS X
Fr. Couture (presently District Superior of Canada) asked that this consecration be on July 2nd. It is similar to the consecration performed by the Bishops of Canada in 1947.
Until this moment I did not know that the Bishops of Canada had performed such a consecration.
It makes me wonder what it would be like if they had not done the consecration!
CONSECRATION OF CANADA AND THE MINISTRY OF THE PRIESTS OF THE SOCIETY OF SAINT PIUS X TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS AND THE IMMACULATE HEART OF
O Jesus,Who didst ask at Fatima that devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary be
established throughout the world, in order to save poor sinners from the fires of hell, behold
we come today, the priests of the Society of Saint Pius X, in union with all our faithful
people, to renew the consecration of Canada and of our ministry to the Immaculate Heart of
Humbly prostrate before Thine altar, we adore Thee in the Blessed Sacrament, and venerate
the admirable privilege granted to Thy Holy Mother, by which Her most pure Soul was
preserved from original sin, in order to become the refuge of sinners and “the way that will
lead them to God”.
O Jesus, Thou hast instructed us through the vision of Saint John Bosco, in which he saw the
Church attacked from every side, but saved by the Blessed Sacrament and the Immaculate
Conception of Our Lady. Thou hast instructed us also through the vision of Sister Lucy, in
which she was permitted to contemplate the Blessed Trinity, the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
and Thy Holy Sacrifice of Calvary, renewed on our altars, the infinite source of grace and
mercy. So it is, O Jesus, One and only True God, that in this storm which is shaking the
Church and the world, Thou hast given us as the ark of salvation, the Immaculate Heart of
Mary and the incomparable treasure of the Blessed Eucharist.
Consequently, in the Presence of the Sacrament of Thy Love, with the utmost confidence of
being heard, we consecrate again Canada, our families and the ministry of the priests of the
Society of Saint Pius X to Thy Eucharistic Heart and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.We
beseech Thee, O Sacred Heart of Jesus and Thee, O Immaculate Heart of Mary, to deign to
receive this consecration of our country so that, protected by Thine assistance from the
dangers which threaten it and enlightened by the Truths of ThyWisdom, Canada may
become once more a land of predilection, where love of Thy Holy Name and respect for Thy
law will reign again, in conformity with the truth of Thy Sovereign Royalty, for which our
first missionaries gave their lives.
Accept also this consecration of our families which, with all our heart, we make to Thee so
that, forever safe in the burning furnace of Thy Charity, O Sacred Heart of Jesus, and in the
refuge of Thy Heart, which is the refuge of all sinners, O Immaculate Heart of Mary, touched
by so much mercy and grace, Thy children may live henceforth only for Thee, in Thy Church,
and in obedience to Thy commandments, and may thus all, one day, come safely to Heaven to
“sing forever Thy glories and Thy blessings”.
Finally, we ask Thee to receive this consecration of our Society of Saint Pius X, established in
Canada, so that, faithful to the mission which has been confided to it, it may work with all its
strength for the coming of the Kingdom of Christ, the King, and for the triumph of the
Immaculate Heart of Mary, in this great land which the Church as placed under the patronage
of Saint Joseph and the Canadian Martyrs. Taught by the example of our venerated Founder,
Archbishop Lefebvre, we renew today the consecration of our priests, our seminarians, our
religious, the members of our third order and all our spiritual family to the Hearts of Jesus and
We offer to Thee and we consecrate to Thee, O Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, our goods,
our houses, all the Faithful who are confided to us and all the labours of our ministry, asking
Thee to keep us ever steadfastly attached to the Catholic Church, our Mother, and to protect us
always from error and from sin, so that united forever in the love of Thy divine Hearts, we may
give Thee glory and praise Thee with all the angels and saints, throughout all ages of eternity.
