Towards the New Creation

by Stefania Caterina and Tomislav Vlašić

CONSECRATION OF THE EARTH TO GOD THE FATHER

Oh God, our Father,

God of immense and perfect goodness,[1]

as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Universe and as His Mystical Body present on Earth,

we consecrate ourselves to You,

united in the Holy Spirit,

offering ourselves to Jesus Christ

through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

In this extremely serious historical moment that our planet is going through,

for the Earth and the whole universe

 to be recapitulated in Jesus Christ and introduced into the new creation,[2]

we turn to You with the prayer of our Saviour:

“Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him.

Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do. And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began” (John 17,2-5).

 

We consecrate ourselves to your will

to live according to the teachings of your Son,

 guided by the Holy Spirit,

to reach the new creation.[3]

Forgive us, good Father;

draw us to You;

separate us from Evil and protect us so it does not destroy us.

Watch over us through your Son in the Holy Spirit.

Forgive all the sins committed on Earth;

heal this humanity and all creatures of our planet.

Fulfil your promises revealed by the prophets:

finally realise Your Kingdom,

announced and obtained by the Sacrifice of your Son

 in which we participate.

“Thy kingdom come”,

all men and creatures shall thank You

with eternal praise,

serving each other

and respecting the laws of the pure Spirit

according to your will.

Amen
