Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Most sweet Jesus, Redeemer of the human race,
look down upon us humbly prostrate before Your altar.
We are Yours, and Yours we wish to be;
but, to be more surely united with You,
behold each one of us freely consecrates himself
today to Your Most Sacred Heart.
Many indeed have never known You; many too,
despising Your precepts, have rejected You.
Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus,
and draw them to Your Sacred Heart.

You are King, O Lord, not only of the faithful
who have never forsaken You,
but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned You;
grant that they may quickly return to their Father's
house lest they die of wretchedness and hunger.

You are King of those who are deceived by erroneous opinions,
or whom discord keeps aloof; call them back to the harbor
of truth and unity of faith, so that soon there may be
but one flock and one Shepherd.

You are King of all those who are still involved in the
darkness of idolatry or of Islamism;
refuse not to draw them all into the light and kingdom of God.
Turn Your eyes of mercy toward the children of that race,
once Your chosen people. Of old they called down upon
themselves the Blood of the Savior;
may it now descend upon them a laver of redemption and of life.

Grant, O Lord, to Your Church assurance of freedom and immunity
from harm; give peace and order to all nations,
and make the earth resound from pole to pole with one cry:
Praise to the Divine Heart that wrought our salvation;
to It be glory and Honor forever. Amen

The common good embraces the sum total of all those
conditions of social life which enable individuals,
families, and organizations to achieve complete
and effective fulfillment.

Pope John XXIII, 1961

Beginning our discussion of the rights of the human person,
we see that everyone has the right to life, to bodily integrity,
and to the means which are suitable for the proper development
of life; these are primarily food, clothing, shelter, rest,
medical care, and finally the necessary social services.

Therefore a human being also has the right to security in cases
of sickness, inability to work, widowhood, old age, unemployment,
or in any other case in which one is deprived of the means
of subsistence through no fault of one's own
Pacem in Terris
Peace on Earth
John XXIII, 1963

Human persons are willed by God;
they are imprinted with God's image.
Their dignity does not come from the work they do,
but from the persons they are.
Centesimus Annus
The Hundredth Year
John Paul II, 1991

Wherefore, whatever the progress in technology and economic life,
there can be neither justice nor peace in the world,
so long as men fail to realize how great is their dignity;
for they have been created by God and are His children.
Mater et Magistra
Mother and Teacher
Pope John XXIII, 1961

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment
before starting to improve the world. --Anne Frank
