In the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit - Amen
*O Jesus, friend of children, in Your life on earth You called them so tenderly to Yourself. We now entrust to You this child, whom You have called forth, first to life, and then home to Your Heart. We desire to dedicate this little one forever to your Precious Blood. We praise You for covering her with Your blessing of salvation, won for her through the merits of your Blood. We know that she beholds Your face now and rests sweetly in Your arms, with inexpressible joy, for all eternity. We recall her Baptism, which made her a child of God and even in our sorrow, bless You, knowing there is no love for her greater than Yours…
O crucified Jesus, we adore and praise you for the haven You have granted this little one in your Father’s house, and for concealing her always in Your Sacred heart, in the glory of the saints! We dedicate this littlest one to You, Jesus, and to your divine Blood that won her salvation. Because of Your great and unfathomable mercy, this dear child will always remain untouched by evil and faithful to your Holy Spirit who lives fully in her, bestowing all the desires of her heart. She will never bear the stain of sin or fail to enjoy Your love completely, with her whole heart and soul. May she, in turn, be a constant and powerful intercessor for her mother and beloved saint to all of us who pray in remembrance of her.
Through your hands, O Immaculate Virgin Mary, and in the shelter of your mantle, we humbly offer this little child to your Son Jesus. We ask you to constantly surround her with the love of your motherly heart that fills the Heavens. We ask Jesus to bless this child of loving and sorrowful earthly parents, that through the unimaginable sorrows of your own mother’s heart, the joy of the blessed that has been granted to this babe will, through the mercy of the Redeeming Blood of your Son, take hold in the hearts of her parents, until that happy day when they meet again face to face – together with you and our loving Lord, Jesus, forevermore. Amen.*
I am so sorry for your loss; a loss most of us cannot begin to comprehend. I hold your heart and intentions in my prayers. :console:
God be with you, as He surely is, to strengthen and uphold you. Jesus, we trust in You! O Lord, hear our prayer and come quickly to our aid!
