I, ________________ on this day ________, choose as my principal and foundation to console the heart of Jesus.
Dear Jesus, relying on your grace and the prayers of Mary and of all the angels and saints, I will strive to keep before my eyes the deep sorrow of your heart and respond, with Mary, by consoling you in the following two ways:
First, I will give you my trust. Jesus, I trust in you. I will try not to be afraid of going to You as I am (ecce), even when my sins and weaknesses weigh heavily upon me. With an open heart, I choose to accept your mercy (fiat), even all the mercy other souls reject. Finally, I will do my best to praise and thank you in all things (magnificat), even when you give me the privilege of sharing in your Cross.
Second, I will strive to show mercy to my neighbor through my deeds, words, and prayers, remembering that by consoling others, I am also consoling you.
Heavenly Father, for the sake of the sorrowful passion of your Son, I beg you: Send forth your Holy Spirit to help me fulfill this choice.
