Jesus,friend of children,
during your life
you called them tenderly to yourself.
We now bring you this little child
whom we desire to dedicate to your Precious Blood.

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.

Conceal him/her in the opening in your Sacred heart.

Through your hands, O Immaculate Virgin Mary,

and in heaven
know the joy of the blessed
who sing forever the mercy of your Redeeming Blood.
