The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines on Tuesday released the prayer for the upcoming National Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Shortened and directed to the country’s present context, the prayer was adopted from the “official act of consecration” written by St. John Paul II himself for the Feast of the Annunciation in 1985.
According to the CBCP, the prayer was meant to be offered by the pope himself and all the bishops of the Church.
During that time, Cardinal Jaime Sin of Manila and Cardinal Ricardo Vidal took official part of the solemn act of offering in the Vatican.
March 25 of that year was also the day that Vidal and 27 others were elevated to the College of Cardinals.
The bishops, during their 108th plenary assembly in January 2014, approved that the consecration to the Immaculate Heart Mary be renewed every year on her feast day in every diocese until the Jubilee Year of 2021.
This year, the feast day will be on June 12.
The national consecration will be led by Archbishop Romulo Valles, CBCP President, and will be live streamed from the Davao Cathedral at 9:45 a.m.
The Mass in honor of the Immaculate Heart of Mary will then follow at 10 a.m. in the different cathedrals and parish churches led by the National Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Valenzuela City.
