[REPOST] Consecration of the human race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus [UNCUT]

This coming Sunday will be the feast of Our Lord Jesus Christ the King. We are, therefore, reposting our article from last year about the text of the Consecration of the human race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Every last Sunday of October since 1926, Christendom renews this consecration. The original text commanded by Leo XIII has subsequently undergone at least two revisions. The last revision happened in what we can lament as the proverbial preconciliar spring cleaning, wherein Saint John XXIII expunged what Leo XIII wrote and what Blessed Pius XI elaborated on.

The text of the Consecration of the human race, recited on the last Sunday of October, has undergone revisions at least three times. The first text was prepared by Pope Leo XIII, which, in the encyclical Annum Sacrum, promulgated on 25 May 1899, declaring 1900 a Holy Year, he commanded to be recited on the last day of the Holy Year, to consecrate the human race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Through a decree promulgated by the Sacred Congregation of Indulgences, dated 22 August 1906, Saint Pius X decreed that the Leonine formula should be recited in the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament on the feast of the Sacred Heart.

The Fathers of the First Provincial Council of Manila decreed (no. 452) that this Consecration should be kept in all churches in the archipelago and should be recited not only on the feast of the Sacred Heart, but after every Mass every first Fridays, as well as every time the votive Mass of the Sacred Heart is said.
