Act of Dedication of the Human Race to Jesus Christ King
Most sweet Jesus, Redeemer of the human race, look down upon us humbly prostrate before You. We are Yours and Yours we wish to be; but to be more surely united with You, behold, each one of us freely consecrates ourselves 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.
Be King, O Lord Jesus, 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.
Be King of those who are deceived by erroneous opinions or whom discord keeps aloof and call them back to the harbor of truth and the unity of faith, so that soon there may be but one flock and one Shepherd--You, Lord Jesus.
Grant, O Lord Jesus, to Your Church and to Your flock assurance of freedom and immunity from harm; give tranquility of order to all nations; make the earth resound from pole to pole with one cry: "Praise to the Sacred Divine Heart that wrought our salvation; to it be glory and honor for ever." Amen.
Note: A partial indulgence is granted to the faithful, who piously recite the above Act of Dedication of the Human Race to Jesus Christ King. A plenary indulgence is granted, if it is recited publicly on the feast of our Lord Jesus Christ King (which is celebrated on the last Sunday before Advent--usually in November). In 2015, it was on November 22 and it will again be celebrated on November 20, 2016.
