Dedication of Our Country

O Immaculate Virgin Mother of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Mother of Grace, and Queen of the kingdom of your Son,
humbly kneeling before you,
we offer you this country in which we live.
It once was yours.
Before it was robbed of the holy Faith
all its children were your children,
and you were honored throughout.
Again do we consecrate it to you;
again do we dedicate it as your own Dowry.
We offer our own hearts,
that their love and service
may ever grow and increase.
May your prayer bring back the country's faith.
May your intercession lead us to a closer union
with your divine Son.
We consecrate ourselves to Him through you.
Obtain for us every grace and blessing,
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!
