Jesus,friend of children,
during your life on earth,
you called them tenderly to yourself.
We now bring you this little child
whom we desire to dedicate to your Precious Blood.
We ask you to cover N. with your blessings
and with the merits of your Blood
so that he/she may persevere in the grace
of his/her baptism which makes him/her a child of God.
O crucified Jesus,
grant N. a haven in your holy wounds.
Conceal him/her in the opening in your Sacred heart.
May he/she never have the unhappiness of displeasing you.
We dedicate to you, Jesus,
and to your divine Blood this child
that he/she may remain faithful to your Holy Spirit
who lives in him/her and
desires to lead him/her to holiness of life.
Through your hands, O Immaculate Virgin Mary,
we offer N. to your Son Jesus.
We ask you, holy Mother,
to surround this child with the love of your motherly heart.
We ask you, Jesus,
to bless this child that in this life
he/she may be the joy of his/her parents,
and in heaven know the joy of the blessed
who sing forever the mercy of your Redeeming Blood.
O Lord Jesus Christ, Who said to Your Apostles: "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you," regard not my sins but the faith of Your Church, and deign to give her peace and unity according to Your Will: Who live and reign, God, world without end. Amen. continue reading
