The act of consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

... Receive my heart then, O divine heart of Jesus; purify it, sanctify it, and inflame it with your most pure love, that it may not act but by the motion of your love nor suffer, but for your love, grieve only that it loves you so little, have its only joy in loving you much, desire nothing but the continual increase of that love, and fear nothing but to let that holy love relent and be consumed; in a word, make my heart like to yours, that by you, and with you, it may eternally love the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. Amen.
