Today, I fell behind in producing this series. I lapsed in the preparation. Take this as a sign that it is not AS necessary to perfectly execute the prayers of preparation AS it is to interiorly prepare one's soul. I can catch up on the prayers, and I shouldn't give up or feel thwarted by the devil and stop persevering.
True Devotion: Nos. 213-225
Wonderful effects of this devotion
My dear brother, be sure that if you are faithful to the interior and exterior practices of this devotion which I will point out - the following effects will take place in your soul.
First effect: By the light which the Holy Spirit will give you through His dear spouse, Mary, you will understand your own evil, your corruption and your incapacity for anything good. In other words, the humble Mary will communicate to you a portion of her profound humility, which will make you despise yourself, despise nobody else, but love to be despised yourself.
Second effect: Our Blessed lady also will give you a portion of her faith, which was the greatest of all faiths, that were ever on this earth, greater than all the faiths of all the patriarchs, prophets, apostles and saints put together.
Third effect: This Mother of fair love will take away from your heart all scruple and all disorder of servile fear.
Fourth effect: Our Blessed Lady will fill you with great confidence in God and in herself because you will not be approaching Jesus by yourself, but always by that good Mother.
Fifth effect: The soul of our Blessed Lady will communicate itself to you, to glorify the Lord. Her spirit will enter into the place of yours to rejoice in God, her salvation, provided only that you are faithful to the practices of this devotion.
Sixth effect: If Mary, who is the tree of life, is well cultivated in our soul by fidelity to the practices of this devotion, she will bear fruit in her own time, and her fruit is none other than Jesus Christ.
Seventh effect: By this practice, faithfully observed, you will give Jesus more glory in a month, than by any other practice, however difficult, in many years.
