Our Lady of Perpetual Succor, the meaning of the items in the Icon

" ... CHRIST'S FINGERS hold His Mother’s right hand, yet they rest quite loosely there. In this lies another lesson. Though Mary is His Mother, He is her God. To Him she owes all her graces. This holding of hands is also a symbol of love and a union of wills. We hold the hands of those whom we love and, as St. Thomas Aquinas says: “the effect of love is a union of wills.” We see a similar joining of hands in Matrimony, where “they two shall be in one flesh” (Mt. 19:5). So too must be “one in mind” with Christ and His Mother. ..."

Act of Consecration to Our Lady of Perpetual Help
Most Holy Virgin Mary
who, to inspire me with the fullest confidence, hast been willing to take the sweet name of Mother of Perpetual Help, I. N. N. (say your name)
acknowledge that my sins render me unworthy to be admitted among the number of thy privileged children. Nevertheless, desirous of enjoying thy merciful favor, I cast myself at thy feet and humbly prostrate before thee, I consecrate to thee my understanding, that I may always think of thee; I consecrate to thee my heart in order that, after God, I may love thee above all things.

O my Sovereign Lady, deign to receive me among the number of thy favored children, take me under thy protection, help me in all my spiritual and temporal wants, but especially at the hour of my death.

O Mother of Perpetual Help,
I know that thou lovest me more than I can love myself, I entrust all my interests to thy care: dispose of me, and all that belongs to me, according to thy good pleasure.

O Mother, bless me,
and by thy powerful intercession support my weakness, so that having been faithful in serving thee during this life, I may praise thee, love thee and thank thee eternally in the next.
Amen.
Wednesday novena.
