It is contained in the promises you will make. Today it is you who will be consecrated, you will be asked to freely consecrate yourself, set yourself apart to be free to serve the Church. You and all present will hear the words, ‘By this consecration you will adhere more easily to Christ with an undivided heart; you will be more freely at the service of God and humankind.’
