said by the Archbishop of Santo Domingo, Cardinal Nicolas de Jesus Lopez
on May 14,

Sacred heart of Jesus, who have so loved the world, to the extreme,
without sparing anything in order to save us and bestow on us your love,
your life, your grace, your light and your truth. You are the open
fountain from which the graces of salvation and conversion emanate
abundantly. You are the open fountain from which the rivers of living
water flow, purifying, transforming and revitalizing the whole of
From your Pierced Heart, Oh Jesus, the gift of the Holy Spirit flows
with great power and strength for humanity. It is for this reason, that
the American Continent comes before the Eucharist, desiring to
consecrate itself entirely to Your Heart, recognizing that only in the
contemplation of your Eucharistic Heart, opening up to the fulfillment
of the designs of your Heart and with the disposition to be formed in
sanctity, we will able to faithfully respond to the tremendous grace we
have received by having been called by the Vicar of Christ, the
Continent of Hope: the Continent of love and life.
America opens wide the doors of its heart to Christ the Redeemer today,
and ask that each and every one of its inhabitants, its leaders, its
families, its men and women; its youth and children, its elderly and
sick, all of its countries and cities, and the entire Church of America,
may experience in full, the powerful strength of the Holy Spirit, who
comes to transform, purify and remove the stones from our hearts, in
order to give us new hearts, hearts that are capable of being ardent
witnesses of love in this Third Millennium.
May the living water that gushes forth from your Heart, renew, nourish,
purify and revitalize the American Continent, in order that it may
fulfill with love, sanctity and responsibility, the mission that you
have entrusted in its hands. May our Continent, full of love for the
Eucharist, become a beacon that shines forth the light of the Reign of
your Heart: the civilization of love!
Oh Immaculate Heart of Mary, you are the temple and sanctuary of
the Spirit. In you, the sanctifying action of the Holy Spirit abides,
with all of its power and strength. You are the masterpiece of the
Spirit, and at the same time, His Bride. Your presence brings about the
outpouring of the Spirit in the Church and in the world. Your nearness
and your maternal prayer, evident from the beginning of the
evangelization of this Continent, guarantees the presence of the Holy
Spirit, and helps us to be ever willing to spread the love of Christ
everywhere, with missionary ardor.
The American Continent, highly favored with the gift of your maternal
image, engraved in the tilma of one of our indigenous people, desires to
consecrate itself today, Oh Virgin Most Blessed, to your Immaculate and
Maternal Heart. This continent desires to live within the spiritual
Cenacle which is your Heart, so that within it, and accompanied by your
intercession and maternal mediation, it may live a constant Pentecost.
In virtue of this consecration, Oh Heart of Mary Most Blessed, America
asks that you may guard and protect us from all spiritual, social and
physical danger. Protect us, oh Mother, from all confusion, from all
violence, from all unfaithfulness or indifference towards our brothers
and sisters. That our hearts may burn with the fire of the Spirit, just
as your own Heart is set aflame with His love. United to you, who are
the bearer par excellence of Christ to the world, may the American
Continent be a special instrument in God's hands, to give to this cold
and arid world, the joy, the love, the life, the light, the truth and
the peace of the Savior.
Oh Hearts of Jesus and Mary, hope of America, hope of humanity!
Hope, because in your perfect communion of love for God and mankind, you
have given yourselves to the work of Redemption of the whole world.
Today the Church of America, the entire continent, disposes itself with
generosity and humility, to partake in the designs of mercy that the Two
Hearts are manifesting for the entire world. That by the anointing of
the Holy Spirit, and by the powerful force of love that flows from the
Hearts of Jesus and Mary, America, this Eucharistic and Marian
Continent, may be a faithful and efficacious instrument in order to
promote in all hearts, a new civilization of love and life. Amen!
