It was on the eve of the feast of the North American martyrs, September 25, 1956, that Our Lady first appeared to Sister Mary Ephrem, in the Our Lady Mother of Mercy Chapel:
“I am Our Lady of America.
I desire that My children honor Me, especially by the purity of their lives.”
On the next day, as Our Lady of America, She confirms Her Identity as that which the U.S. Bishop declared and which was ratified by the Holy See in proclaiming:
“I am the Immaculate One, Patroness of your land.
Be My faithful children as I have been your Faithful Mother.”
“It is the United States that is to lead the world to Peace, the Peace of Christ,
the Peace that He brought with Him from Heaven.”
Sister Mary Ephrem quoted The Virgin as saying – “Dear children, unless the United States accepts and carries out faithfully the mandate given to it by Heaven to lead the world to Peace, there will come upon it and all nations a great havoc of war and incredible suffering. If, however, the United States is faithful to this mandate from Heaven and yet fails in the pursuit of Peace because the rest of the world will not accept or cooperate, then the United States will not be burdened with the punishment about to fall.” – Nov. 22, 1980
The Blessed Virgin Mary Promised that Her statue as Our Lady of America once placed in the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception would be a safeguard for our country, and her picture or statue honored in all homes, a safeguard for the family. She also Promised that the medal would be a safeguard against evil for those who wear it with great faith and devotion. She taught Sr. Mary Ephrem this short prayer:
“By Thy Holy and Immaculate Conception O Mary, deliver us from evil.”
To honor Our Lady of America, we repeat this prayer that She taught Sr. Mary Ephrem, with the certain hope that we may be Our Lady of America’s little, faithful children: “By Thy Holy and Immaculate Conception O Mary, deliver us from evil.” Furthermore, we pray in the Will of God that Holy Mother Church soon recognize Sr. Mildred Mary Ephrem Neuzil as Servant of God. For it is to this chosen soul and of her confessor that Our Lord spoke thus: “…through you a great work will be accomplished. I AM the Great Sculptor of souls. With hammer and chisel I form them that they may glorify My Father by their beauty and perfection. Be pliant in My Hands, oh My two lowly ones, My priest and My little white dove, and then will you be formed into My likeness and through you, I will be formed in souls.”
The following brief excerpts on the life of Sr. Mary Ephrem include messages (not all) from Our Lord, Our Lady, St. Joseph and St. Michael the Archangel. It is the intent of this effort to visit either in person or in spirit the Apparition site of Our Lady of America, to honor Her there, giving ourselves to Her as Her little children. With the Power and Love of God’s Grace, may we, in Our Lady’s Hands, become all that God Wants, and may this aid the great work of the Divine Mandate given to Her children of America, to lead the world to Peace. May all be for the Glory of God and the good of Holy Mother Church, of all souls and for Peace throughout the world.
“By Thy Holy and Immaculate Conception O Mary, deliver us from evil.”
Sr. Mildred Mary Neuzil (1916-2000)–God’s ‘Little White Dove’, born on the Feast of Our Lady, Queen of the Angels August 2, 1916. At the age of 14, Mildred Neuzil entered the active religious congregation of the Sisters of the Precious Blood, a papal community, in Dayton Ohio. Three years later Mildred made her first vows as a professed religious. She received the name Sister Mary Ephrem, a name that means “doubly fruitful”. By 1940, Our Lord revealed to Sr. Mary Ephrem that her mission was to converge on the sanctification of the family: “My daughter, I am not loved in the homes of men. And because I am not loved, the Divine Trinity refuses to dwell therein. Children are not taught to love Me, because those who have charge over them have no time or patience to do so.”
Sister began to share experiences with her confessor Rev. Paul Leibold. He would remain her spiritual director for 32 years, from 1940-1972, when he died. From 1948-1949 he studied Canon Law at the Angelicum University in Rome, there he received Doctor of Canon Law Degree. In 1948 he became Chancellor Archdiocese of Cincinnati and Papal Chamberlain by Holy Father, 1950 Diocesan Consultor and Domestic Prelate by Holy Father, 1951 appointed Archdiocesan Administrative Council 1958 he was promoted to Auxiliary Bishop of Cincinnati, Ohio, and in 1966 he became the Bishop of Evansville, Indiana. On October 2, 1969 he was made Archbishop of Cincinnati.
In the winter of 1954, Our Lord warns her not to become vain for He has chosen them (Sr. Mary Ephrem and Rev. Paul Leibold) out of their unworthiness and lack of virtue: “Let this thought be with you always that you may remember that it is I working through you, who sanctify you for His glory and the salvation of souls…through you a great work will be accomplished. I AM the Great Sculptor of souls. With hammer and chisel I form them that they may glorify My Father by their beauty and perfection. Be pliant in My Hands, oh My two lowly ones, My priest and My little white dove, and then will you be formed into My likeness and through you, I will be formed in souls.”
In the fall of 1954 Our Lord’s words to Sister Mary Ephrem emphasized the great renewal needed for His people: “My children every home and every soul is My Father’s house, for He made them and they are His, But many of them are no longer sanctified by His presence. Thieves have entered in and stolen from Him, His temples of prayer…If, My children, you will cleanse your temples My Father will return and We will come and make our abode with you.”
Our Lord prepares her for this great renewal by first sending her St. Michael, the Angel of Peace: “…I am the Angel of Peace. I come to those whose hearts are attuned to the Voice of God. To such as these I remain a Perpetual Light through blinding darkness, I was sent by Him Who said, “I AM the Light of the world.”
A short time after the visit of St. Michael, the Blessed Virgin Mary speaks to Sr. Mary Ephrem about Her Holy Life at Nazareth: “It is the wish of My Son that fathers and mothers strive to imitate me and my chaste spouse in our holy life at Nazareth. We practiced the simple virtues of family life, Jesus our Son being the center of all our love and activity. The Holy Trinity dwelt with us in a manner far surpassing anything that can ever be imagined. For ours was the earthly paradise where God walked among me…The Divine Trinity will dwell in your midst only if you are faithful in practicing the virtues of our life at Nazareth. Then, you also my children, you also will become another paradise. God will then walk among you and you will have peace.”
On the eve of the feast of North American Martyrs, that is September 25,1956 while making a holy hour she once again becomes conscious of the Presence of Our Lady: “I am pleased My child with the love and honor My children in America give to Me especially through My Glorious and Unique Privilege of The Immaculate Conception. I Promise to reward their love by Working Miracles of Grace among them through the Power of My Son’s Heart, and My Immaculate Heart. I do Not Promise miracles of the body, but of the soul.”
The following day after mass and the community thanksgiving, Our Lady Appears to her again Enveloped in a Soft Glow of Light. Sister notices the Smile on Our Lady’s Beautiful Countenance and the Lily She held in Her right hand. She wore a White Veil reaching almost to the waist and a Mantle and Robe of Pure White with not a single decoration of any kind. An oblong shaped clasp or brooch held the ends of the Mantle together at the top. It was all Gold as was the tall and brilliant Crown she wore. Her hair and eyes seemed of medium brown. Her feet were bare, but not always visible as they were sometimes covered by the moving clouds on which Our Lady stood. Then she saw Her Heart appear Encircled with Red Roses, the symbol of Suffering as it was revealed to me, and sending forth Flames of Fire. With Her left hand Our Lady seemed to be holding up slightly the upper part of Her Mantle so that Her Immaculate Heart could be seen. Then Solemnly and Distinctly in Calm yet Majestic Tones I heard these words: “I am Our Lady of America, I desire My children honor Me by the purity of their lives. My child, I entrust you with this Message that you must make known to My children in America. I wish it to be the country dedicated to My Purity. The Wonders that I will Work will be the wonders of the soul….I desire, through My children in America, to further the cause of faith and purity among peoples and nations…”
Later, in a letter written to the archbishop, Sister Mary Ephrem outlines Our Lady’s wishes – “It is to the Hierarchy, especially of the United States, that Our Lady is making Her Plea. They are Her favorite sons, placed in high offices in order that they might do the most good. She Herself has spoken thus to me…Our Lady has asked that a statue be made as She Appeared on Sept. 26th, 1956. After being solemnly carried in procession to the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington DC. She desires that there it be enshrined in a place of honor and venerated in a special way as ‘Our Lady of America, the Immaculate Virgin’. She desires also that a small statue or picture of the same likeness be honored in every home.”
Shortly after Our Lady’s appearance to sister she began to have interior locutions of St. Joseph. He reveals to her that immediately after his conception, through the merits of Jesus and because of his exceptional role of Virgin-Father, he was cleansed from the stain of original sin: “My pure heart, from the first moment of existence, was Inflamed with Love for God. Immediately at the moment my soul was cleansed from original sin, Grace was Infused into it in such abundance that excluding my Holy Spouse, I surpassed the Holiness of the Highest Angel in the Angelic Choir.” St. Joseph revealed to Sister Mary Ephrem that his heart suffered with the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, for he knew beforehand of their Passion, yet would not be there to console them. He became in union with his Holy Spouse Co-Redemptor of the human race.
Sister writes that on October 13, 1956 the Holy Virgin Appeared to her as she was working in her room. Our Lady was very Beautiful and was Smiling at her in Her Heavenly Way. She held with both hands a small replica of a finished Shrine of the Immaculate Conception: “This is My shrine, My daughter, and I am very pleased with it. Tell My children that I Thank them. Let them finish it quickly, and make it a place of pilgrimage. It will be a place of wonders. I Promise this. I will Bless all those who, either by prayers, labor or material aid, help to erect this shrine.”
From January 1957 on Our Lady’s warnings come to sister more often, stating that the hour grows late, and that Her Son’s patience will not last forever: “It is now the darkest hour…but if men will come to Me, My Immaculate Heart will make it Bright again with the Mercy with which My Son will Rain Down through My hands. Tell the Bishops of the United States, My loyal sons, of My desires, and how I wish them to be carried out. Through him who is head over you, make known the longings of My Immaculate Heart to Establish the Reign of My Divine Son in the hearts of men, and thus save them from the scourge of heaven, both now and in the future.”
On the Feast of the Immaculate Heart, August 22, 1957, Our Lady Reveals more parts of Her Plan on how this great renewal will be accomplished: “I wish to gather about Me, My tender child, soldiers and valiant bearers of the torch, an army of brave lovers who, as My torch-bearers, will rekindle the Fire of Divine Love in the souls of men. Only those who are strong in love can become My soldiers to bear aloft, not the sword of destruction, but the Sword of Fire–the Flaming Torch of Divine Charity.”
St. Michael tells her that He has come to announce the coming of the Kingdom, the Kingdom of Peace, exclaiming: “Repent and rouse yourselves, O’ sons of men! Repent and make ready your hearts, that the King may Establish His Kingdom within you.”
April, 1957, Our Lady continues Her Warnings: “My sweet child, unless My children reform their lives, they will suffer great persecution. If man himself will not take upon himself the penance necessary to atone for his sins and those of others, God in His Justice will have to send upon him punishment necessary to atone for his transgressions.”
Our Lady of America speaks to priests, September, 16-27, 1957. Our Lady’s Admonition to priests to live lives of penance and self-denial, upholding the sanctity and dignity of their calling: “My dear daughter and sweet child, write My Words carefully, because they are of the Utmost Importance. I address them to My beloved sons, the priests, dedicated to the most intense and extraordinary imitation of My Son in the perfect carrying on of His Eternal Priesthood. Beloved sons, so cherished and greatly blessed among the sons of men, be careful to uphold the sanctity and dignity of your calling. Let the faithful see in you the favored and especially loved imitators of the Son of God. Be modest in your dress and speech as becomes those of so exalted a vocation. The apparel and manners of a man of the world is not for you, who, though living in the world, must not take on its ways. Dear sons, I ask you to practice self-denial and penance in a special manner, because it is you who must lead My children in the Way of Peace. Yet this Peace will come only by Way of the Sword, the Flaming Sword of Love. If, therefore, you love My Son and wish to honor Me, heed My Admonition and be the first to give the example of a life of penance and self-denial.”
November 22-23, 1957. Mary appears as Our Lady, the Immaculate Tabernacle of the Indwelling God – “Our Lady Appeared, standing on a globe, Her right foot resting on a crescent moon, the left on the snout of a small fire breathing dragon. She was Dressed all in White and Her hair could be seen through Her transparent Veil which was long enough to half envelope the globe. The Veil was held about Her head by a Wreath of White Roses, and a White Rose rested on each foot. On Her breast, the Triangle and the Eye, the symbol of the Divine Indwelling, could be visibly seen. A strong Beam of Light shown from the Divine Presence within Our Lady onto the globe at Her feet. Then halfway around the figure of Our Lady above Her head Appeared a Scroll on which were written in letters of Gold the Words: “All the Glory of the King’s daughter is within.” Though it did not appear that Her lips moved, I heard these words quite plainly: ‘I am Our Lady of the Divine Indwelling, Handmaid of Him Who Dwells within.’
February 11, 1958. Our Lady renews the Fatima Promise, saying: “My Immaculate Heart will Win in the end, and the Spirit of Christ will Dwell in the hearts of men. Those in whom this Spirit is not found will be condemned to eternal hell-fire.”
Also on this occasion Our Lady tells Sister that nothing is accomplished without pain and bids her prepare to suffer much because suffering completes the Work of Divine Grace in the soul. Then Our Lady also spoke of Her particular interest in the youth of our nation and Called on them to be leaders in this movement of renewal on the face of the earth, sharing with Her army of chaste soldiers the title: ‘Torchbearers of the Queen.’
“They must be prepared with the knowledge of the Divine Indwelling. It is to the youth of America that She is holding out this challenge…America, with the United States in particular, is being given the tremendous, yet privileged, opportunity to lead all nations in a Spiritual Renewal never before so Necessary, so Important, so Vital.”
More Appearances of St Joseph, March 19, 1958: St. Joseph appears on his feast day and speaks on spiritual fatherhood: St. Joseph spoke of his spiritual fatherhood, of his great privilege in being Chosen to be the Virgin-Father of Jesus, and of his perfect obedience to the Divine Will. He spoke of his special protection of the Holy Father and of the Church: “Fathers must come to me to learn obedience to authority: to the Church always, as the Mouthpiece of God, and to the laws of the country in which they live, insofar as these do not go against God and their neighbors…Mine was perfect obedience to the Divine Will, as it was shown and made known to me by the Jewish law and religion. To be careless in this is most displeasing to God and will be severely punished in the next world…Fatherhood is from God, and it must take once again its rightful place among men…My special protection of the Holy Father and the Church should be made known to him. God wishes to make this known to him that he may receive thereby renewed consolation and encouragement. During the war, little daughter, it was I who saved him [Pope Pius XII] from death at the hands of his enemies.” (Note: Late in World War II, Hitler issued a direct order to the chief of the German SS in Rome to assassinate Pope Pius XII. The SS officer chose not to carry it out.)
March 30, 1958, St. Joseph asks to be honored on the First Wednesday of each month: “Jesus and Mary desire that my Pure Heart, so long hidden and unknown, be now Honored in a Special Way. Let my children honor my Most Pure Heart in a special manner on the First Wednesday of the month by reciting the Joyful Mysteries of the rosary in memory of my life with Jesus and Mary and the love I bore them, the sorrow I suffered with them. Let them receive Holy Communion in union with the love with which I received the Savior for the first time, and each time I held Him in my arms. Those who honor me in this way will be consoled by my Presence at their death, and I myself will Conduct them safely into the Presence of Jesus and Mary.”
July 18, 1959: Jesus Laments over His priests and religious: “My little white dove, it was this ingratitude on the part of My priests and My religious that caused Me so much Sorrow in My Passion. Oh, how they resist My Grace! How they fight against My Love! So fearful are they that I will deprive them of their tawdry trinkets that they turn their backs lest they see the Reproach in My Eyes.”
September, 1959, Pope John XXIII’s letter, given from Rome to the American Faithful on the dedication of the National Shrine: “It was an extremely gratifying and enduring joy that filled our hearts on receipt of news…that a shrine is to be dedicated to the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God. There now rises up to heaven a shrine, high and massive, wondrously bright within…The Virgin Mother of God is our Mother, our Queen, the sure way by which we approach most speedily to Jesus Christ, Who was given to us by her. But a temple built of stones is of little significance unless there arises a temple mystically erected within our minds. Therefore…let an altar of the Most Blessed Virgin be set up in the heart of each one of the faithful; let families, held together by the sanctity of marriage, by mutual love, by moral integrity and a common spiritual life, reproduce her virtues and be fortified by her protection.”
November 20, 1959 was the day of dedication of the completed Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC. Exactly one month later, on December 20, 1959, Our Lady Lamented the sin overwhelming the world: “O My child, tell your spiritual father [Bishop Leibold] that I Come again to Warn and to Plead. See, I Weep, but My children show Me little compassion. They behold the Sword in My Heart, but they make little effort to withdraw it. I give them Love; they give me only ingratitude. Weep, then, dear child, weep with your Mother over the sins of men. Intercede with Me before the Throne of Mercy, for sin is overwhelming the world and Punishment is not far away.”
(Note: Except on a few occasions, as when She showed Herself as Our Lady of the Divine Indwelling, Our Lady always came to Sr. Mary Ephrem in the manner in which She Appeared on September 26, 1956, namely, as Our Lady of America.)
The Virgin Mary’s Message to the Archbishop requesting to have a medal struck, April 4, 1960: “Tell His Grace, My beloved son, that it is through the medal that he will receive the Sign for which he asks. I ask him to have the medal struck and distributed everywhere and he will receive not only the one Sign for which he has asked but so many, so many that he will have cause to be greatly astonished. My child, God Works often through little and humble things and such instruments should never be despised but accepted and used with love and gratitude. It will be through the medal that God’s Will shall be Manifested and Glorified and My Desires carried out to the very end. I place My Confidence in My faithful sons, the Bishops, who will not fail to take up My Cause and make it bear much fruit for Sanctification among so many and countless souls. Send this word then to My beloved son, the Archbishop, and have no fear sweet child for I will keep My Promise for I am the Ever Faithful Virgin.”
May 1, 1961, Bishop Leibold puts his Imprimatur on Sister Mary Ephrem’s sketch of the medal. Bishop Leibold then had the medal struck and personally paid for all medals until his death in 1972. (Note: Bishop Liebold became the Archbishop of Cincinnati in 1969). He designed the prayer pamphlet to go with the medal. It contained the Prayer to the Immaculate Conception and the Prayer to the Indwelling Most Holy Trinity, as well as the magnificent explanation of the medal itself. (See Pgs. 47-48 of the Diary for this pamphlet information.)
May 22, 1962, Bishop George Rehring of the Toledo diocese favors distribution of the medal by Bishop Leibold. January 25, 1963: Imprimatur on the Prayer to the Indwelling Trinity, Paul F. Leibold, V.G. of Cincinnati, OH gave his Imprimatur and Daniel Palarczyk, S.T.D., his Nihil Obstat to the Prayer to the Indwelling Most Holy Trinity. Just before his death, Archbishop Leibold arranged a meeting with Luigi Riamondi, the Apostolic Delegate from Washington, DC, Msgr. Boffa, and his personal secretary, Fr. Francis Lammeier, to present a small ivory statuette to the Holy See and the Catholic Church. Posthumously, this statuette was presented to the Apostolic Delegate in August 1972 and is presumed to be in the Vatican Museum.
February 22, 1972, Our Lady’s image in the home: “When a picture or statue of myself as Our Lady of America is placed in the home and honored there, then will My Son Bless His people with Peace. Believe in Me, dear child, believe in Me, for My Love will never fail you.”
On June 1, 1972, Archbishop Paul F. Leibold died suddenly. Before his death, Archbishop Leibold had decided to build a large outdoor Shrine to Our Lady of America at the New Riegel, OH cloister property. His letters indicate he would have officially approved this message had he lived long enough to do so. Archbishop Daniel Pilarczyk succeeded Archbishop Leibold in the Cincinnati archdiocese. (Additional details can be found on the above link and elsewhere on the internet.)
February 11, 1981, Sister Mary Ephrem is told of the shortness of time allotted to us to pray and make the necessary sacrifices to bring about world peace. There is an urgency about Our Lady’s Warnings of a terrible Purification that is to fall upon all nations. She advises us to pray the family rosary with as many family members present as possible, and to pray the prayer to the Immaculate Conception, Patroness of the United States, because the Forces of Evil are enveloping the world. Our Lady Warns their hatred is now particularly focused on the United States because of the Divine Mandate given it to lead the world to Peace.
April and July, 1981, Special Warnings from Our Lord and Our Lady on the insidiousness of evil. Our Lady of America: “Dear child, evil is so insidious that it often passes for good. The simple and pure of heart alone can detect the difference. Also, many good works are thwarted and destroyed by well-intentioned people who are manipulated by the powers of evil because they do not possess that finer sense of being able to detect a false spirit from a true one.”
Our Lady of America’s final Message to Sr. Mary Ephrem in the winter of 1984: “What happens to the world depends upon those who are living in it. There must be much more good than evil prevailing in order to prevent the holocaust that is so near approaching. Yet I tell you, My daughter, that even should such a destruction happen because there were not enough souls who took My Warnings seriously, there will remain a remnant untouched by the chaos who, having been faithful in following Me and spreading My Warnings, will gradually inhabit the earth again with their dedicated and holy lives. These souls will renew the earth in the Power and Light of the Holy Spirit, and these faithful children of Mine will be under My Protection, and that of the Holy Angels, and they will partake of the Life of the Divine Trinity in a most remarkable Way. Let My dear children know this, precious daughter, so that they will have no excuse if they fail to heed My Warnings.”
On January 10, 2000, the first year of the New Millennium, this humble, holy soul, Sister Mary Ephrem (Mildred Marie) Neuzil, at age 83, was set free from the cross she had so willingly embraced for the cause of Our Lady of America. She was set free to receive her full communion with the Most Holy and Triune God that had dwelt so intimately within her while on earth. Her funeral Mass was celebrated at the Basilica of Our Lady of Consolation in Carey, OH by nephew Fr. Gregory Neuzil from Tennessee.
On May 31, 2007, Most Reverend Raymond L. Burke, then Archbishop of St. Louis, wrote a Letter to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops outlining the results of his review of the history and canonical status of devotion to Our Lady of America. Those interested can find the original document on link.
Our Lady of America told Sr. Mary Neuzil that greater miracles than those granted at Lourdes and Fatima will be granted here in America if Our Lady’s Requests are carried out.
Prayer to Our Lady of America, Patroness of our Land
Written at the behest of Our Lady, October 5, 1956 by Sister Mary Ephrem (Mildred Neuzil)
Oh Immaculate Mother, Queen of our country, open our hearts, our homes, and our land to the coming of Jesus, your Divine Son. With Him, reign over us, O heavenly Lady, so pure and so bright with the radiance of Gods light shining in and about you. Be our leader against the powers of evil set upon wresting the world of souls, redeemed at such a great cost by the sufferings of your Son and of yourself, in union with Him, from that same Savior, Who loves us with infinite charity.
We gather about you, O chaste and holy Mother, Virgin Immaculate, Patroness of our beloved Land, determined to fight under your banner of holy purity against the wickedness that would make all the world an abyss of evil, without God and without your loving maternal care.
We consecrate our hearts, our homes, our Land to your Most Pure Heart, O great Queen, that the kingdom of your Son, our Redeemer and our God, may be firmly established in us.
We ask no special sign of you, sweet Mother, for we believe in your great love for us, and we place in you our entire confidence. We promise to honor you by faith, love, and the purity of our lives according to your desire.
Reign over us, then, O Virgin Immaculate, with your Son Jesus Christ. May His Divine Heart and your most chaste Heart be ever enthroned and glorified among us. Use us, your children of America, as your instruments of peace among men and nations. Work your miracles of grace in us, so that we may be a glory to the Blessed Trinity, Who created, redeemed, and sanctifies us.
May your valiant spouse, St. Joseph, with the holy Angels and Saints, assist you and us in “renewing the face of the earth.” Then when our work is over, come, Holy Immaculate Mother, and as our Victorious Queen, lead us to the eternal kingdom, where your Son reigns forever as King.

Prayer to The Most Holy Indwelling Trinity
O my Love, my only Good, Most Holy Trinity, I adore You, hidden in the depths of my soul. To You, to Your honor and glory, I dedicate my life. May every thought, word and deed of mine be an act of adoration and praise directed towards Your Divine Majesty enthroned in my heart.
O Father, Infinite Goodness, behold Your child, clothed in the likeness of Your Son. Extend to me Your arms that I may belong to You forever.
O Son, Divine Lord, made man, crucify me with Yourself that I may become, in union with You, a sacrifice of praise for the glory of Your Father.
O Holy Spirit, Fire of Everlasting Love, consume me on the altar of Divine Charity, that at the end of life, nothing may remain but that which bears the likeness of Christ.
O Blessed Trinity, worthy of all adoration, I wish to remain in spirit on my knees, to acknowledge forever Your reign in me and over me, to Your everlasting glory.
Through the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the pure heart of St. Joseph, I consecrate my life to Your adoration and glory.
At the moment of death, receive me, O my Triune Love, that I may continue my adoration of love through all eternity.
Amen. (200 days)
