Cet acte de consécration au Sacré Cœur a été fait par Marie Antoinette et Élisabeth Marie dans la prison du Temple avant la mort de Louis XVI.
O Jésus Christ ! Tous les cœurs de ce royaume, depuis le cœur de votre auguste Monarque jusqu’à celui du plus pauvre de ses sujets, nous les réunissons par les désirs de la charité, pour vous les offrir ensemble.
Oui Cœur de Jésus, nous vous offrons notre patrie tout entière et les cœurs de tous ses enfants.
O Vierge Sainte ! Ils sont entre vos mains ; nous les avons réunis en nous consacrant à vous, comme à notre protectrice et à notre Mère. Aujourd’hui, nous vous en supplions, offrez les au Cœur de Jésus. Présentés par vous, il les recevra, il leur pardonnera, il les bénira, il les sanctifiera, il sauvera la France tout entière et y fera revivre la Sainte Religion.
Marie Antoinette, Elisabeth Marie. Dans la prison du Temple avant la mort de Louis XVI
O Jesus, God and King of the Universe, “Thou hast wounded my heart”, my Love, with Thy Most Sacred Heart, Its flames overflowing and running over into the deep recesses of my soul. O dearly Beloved, I beseech Thee to be espoused to me on the Wedding Feast of Thy adorable Heart. Take my chastity and virginity and consecrate it to Thee, O True Lover! From now until eternity, keep it from receiving even the smallest stain of sin; purify it with the eternal Fire of Thy Love, a Fire that lasts forever! Lavish upon me, O true God and Bridegroom, Thy precious jewels of virtue and Thy sweet flowers of grace and sacrifice. When my earthly exile is over, embrace me, O dear Jesus. Judge me according to the Standard and desires of Thy Heart, in which this Vow is renewed, with every beat of Its holy pulsations, so as to receive Thee, O Jesus, O my Love, the Crown and Throne of my life!
P.S.: This Spiritual Espousal is intended to be said on the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, which is on June 3, 2016, preferably in front of a statue of the Sacred Heart. If there is no statue of the Sacred Heart in your Church or home, any Image of Him will suffice. Any woman who feels called to and desires to make a Spiritual Espousal and Consecration, should do so.
And for your viewing pleasure…
I pledge allegiance to the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, and to the Monarchy of Heaven, upon which the Just Judge, Who comes to judge the living and the dead, is seated at the right hand of His Heavenly Father; one Kingdom under GOD, the Most Blessed Trinity, eternal, with truth, beauty, and goodness for all.
The devotion to Jesus, King of Love began on August 17th, 1922, when Our Lord manifested Himself to Yvonne Beauvais, a young French woman sojourning in the monastery of the Augustinian Canonesses of the Mercy of Jesus at Malestroit in Brittany, France. Addressing Yvonne, Jesus said: Morning and evening say, O Jesus, King of Love, I put my trust in Thy loving mercy.
On March 18, 1927, Yvonne Beauvais entered the community of Malestroit, and on September 29, 1931, she pronounced her perpetual vows as Mother Yvonne-Aimée de Jésus. After a life of extraordinary love and of great sufferings accepted in faith, the King of Love called Mother Yvonne-Aimée to Himself on February 3, 1951.
At first, the Little Invocation to Jesus, King of Love spread by word of mouth. Then, simple bookmarks appeared, bearing the text of the invocation with an image of the Sacred Heart. In 1932 the Bishop of Vannes, France, approved the invocation for his diocese. The following year, Pope Pius XI indulgenced the prayer for the Augustinian Canonesses of the Mercy of Jesus, for their sick and for those hospitalized under their care. Pope Pius XII renewed the favour and, on December 6, 1958, Blessed John XXIII extended it to the universal Church.
In 1940, during the dark hours of World War II, Mother Yvonne-Aimée designed a medal and an image to make the Little Invocation even better known and loved. She chose to depict Our Lord as a lovable little boy of two or three years of age.
His expression is compassionate and tender; He is completely approachable. The crown signifies His kingship; the olive branch, the gifts of healing and of peace that He offers; with His other hand He points to His Heart overflowing with tender mercy.
The devotion to Jesus, King of Love is especially consoling to adults having suffered from some trauma in childhood such as physical, emotional, or sexual abuse.
The Child King is not threatening. The child living inside the emotionally wounded adult can accept the embrace of the little King of Love. One traumatized in childhood can allow the Little King to come close and absorb into the innocence of His Divine Childhood the shattered innocence that continues to cause fear, shame, and an inability to keep oneself safe.
At the same time, Jesus, King of Love restores to souls the innocence that was lost in childhood, or stolen, or cruelly defiled.
On August 6, 2012, Silverstream Priory was consecrated to Jesus, King of Love; His statue was placed in the monastic oratory.
As more and more people became attracted to the image of Jesus, King of Love, and learned to pray the Little Invocation, the monks were inspired to offer them the spiritual benefits of a Confraternity.
It is a family of souls who recognize each other as brothers and sisters graced by God with the same spiritual affinity, and who seek to share with one another the powerful support that comes from union in prayer.
There is comfort in knowing that one is not praying alone. Sacred Scripture says that a brother that is helped by his brother, is like a strong city (Proverbs 18:19). The fact that other souls are praying the Little Invocation throughout the day and even in the night is a source of strength in moments of weakness, and of hope in times of suffering.
Our Lord’s own words can be applied to the prayer that unites members of the Confraternity: I say to you, that if two of you shall consent upon earth, concerning any thing whatsoever they shall ask, it shall be done to them by my Father who is in heaven. For where there are two or three gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them(Matthew 18:19-20).
There are no obligations apart from the recitation of the Little Invocation morning and evening each day, and the wearing of the medal of the King of Love, or the keeping of it on one’s person. The only bond between members is the confidence they share in Jesus, King of Love. There are no meetings.
The principal benefit of membership in the Confraternity is one’s spiritual union with an international family of childlike souls of all ages who pray the Little Invocation daily for themselves and for each other.
Holy Mass is offered for the living and deceased members of the Confraternity on the first Wednesday of the month, as well as on five other days:
New members will receive a blessed medal and image of Jesus, King of Love, as well as a booklet containing the story of the devotion’s origin, instruction on how to pray the Little Invocation, a biography of Mother Yvonne-Aimée de Jésus, and a treasury of prayers to Jesus, King of Love.
Membership is open to all those who desire to respond to the tender invitation of Jesus, King of Love to place their trust in the merciful goodness of His Heart. The Confraternity is, therefore, open to men, women, and children of all ages.
One joins the Confraternity by applying in writing to its Secretariat at Silverstream Priory, Stamullen, County Meath, Ireland.
Silverstream Priory’s bookstore also distributes hand-carved wood statues of the King of Love in various sizes, as well as medals and images of the King of Love.
