August - the month of the Immaculate Heart of Mary

Thank you one and all!  Thanks to all who made our festival a great success!  From Bonnie Amendola, who chaired the festival, to the organizations from the parish that offered their assistance, to each individual who worked in the various booth, to those who supported us with prayers for success and financially – THANKS ONE AND ALL!

We have entered the month of August which is the month of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  During this month we offer devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  During our Thursday adoration we will be praying the Litany of the Immaculate Heart of Mary following Evening Prayer.  Please join us!   

Often, the Immaculate Heart of Mary is paired with the Sacred Heart of Jesus (the devotion we celebrate in June), and with good reason. The Sacred Heart of Jesus represents Christ's love for mankind, while the Immaculate Heart of Mary represents the desire of the Blessed Virgin to bring all people to her Son.

There is no better example of the Christian life than that offered by Mary. In the month of August we offer prayers to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, such as:

Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
This Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary illustrates perfectly the Marian doctrine of the Catholic Church: We do not worship Mary or place her above Christ, but we come to Christ through Mary, as Christ came to us through her.

In Honor of the Immaculate Heart
In this prayer in honor of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, we ask the Blessed Virgin to guide us in our journey, so that we might receive the graces necessary to live virtuous lives and to persevere at the hour of our death.

Prayer to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
In this long but beautiful prayer, we pray to Mary under the name Queen of the Most Holy Rosary and call upon the love of her immaculate heart to intercede for the conversion of the entire world.

Novena to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
This Novena to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is particularly appropriate to pray in the month of August, but it can be prayed at any time of the year, when you have a special favor to ask of the Blessed Virgin.

Prayer of Intercession to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
This long and very beautiful prayer of intercession to the Immaculate Heart of Mary reminds us of the Blessed Virgin's complete submission to the will of God. As we ask Mary to intercede for us, the prayer draws us back to the point of such intercession: In uniting ourselves with Mary, we draw closer to Christ, because no other human has been closer to Christ than His mother.

Prayer of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart
In this prayer of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, we dedicate ourselves to follow the example of the Mother of God. The Blessed Virgin desires nothing other than the Will of her Son; we ask her to intercede for us, that we may know His Will and live it in our lives.

This prayer was submitted by reader ajr06 through the Reader Response form, "What Are Your Favorite Prayers in Honor of the Immaculate Heart of Mary?" Submit your own prayer, and you may see it featured on the About.com GuideSite to Catholicism!

Through any of these prayers we can join the Mother of God in drawing closer to Christ.

Pope Francis’ Prayer Intentions for August

  • Refugees.  That refugees, forced by violence to abandon their homes, may find a generous welcome and the protection of their rights.
  • Oceania.  That Christians in Oceania may joyfully announce the faith to all the people of that region.

Please remember these pray intention of our Holy Father in your personal and private prayers.
