Consecration to Jesus Through Mary

Want to love God more but don't know how?  Do you find yourself falling back into old habits that are not of God?  Can't find that extra kick you need to overcome yourself?

Consecration to Jesus through Mary is a spiritual boost that helps you to rid yourself of the world, the flesh, the devil, sin, and death, and opens your heart to deeper faith, hope, and charity.  It is a way of living your baptism more fervently and consistently.  Pray about this more and see if God is asking you to undertake this radical step in being more conformed to Jesus Christ the Lord.  For more info click here.

It is highly recommended that during the process of preparation that you read the book by St Louis Marie De Montfort, True Devotion to Mary.  Blessed Pope John Paul II said of the book:
I myself, in the years of my youth, found reading this book a great help. “There I found the answers to my questions”, for at one point I had feared that if my devotion to Mary “became too great, it might end up compromising the supremacy of the worship owed to Christ”. Under the wise guidance of St. Louis Marie, I realized that if one lives the mystery of Mary in Christ, this risk does not exist. In fact, this Saint's Mariological thought “is rooted in the mystery of the Trinity and in the truth of the Incarnation of the Word of God”.

Preparation for Total Consecration
Choosing a Date

On what day of the year will you solemnly gift yourself to Jesus through Mary? There are a few things to consider. First, it should be a Marian feast day. There are many in the Churche's calendar to choose from, especially those principle feasts which mark the redemption that Christ wrought for us through his mother. Second, it should be something significant for you, personal, close to the heart. Third, it helps if it be publicly recognized by the community, even celebrated at a time when many are gathered to pray for you and also receive this witness.  Here are some days that people commonly consecrate themselves:

WARNING: This ain't playing around folks.  This is serious stuff.  The devil will try to thwart you.  Do not make the mistake of thinking if you miss one day that you have failed and can't continue.  Do not let missing one or more of the parts be the obstacle of not completing the final consecration.  Give God your best.  Let him do the rest.  Persevere.  Pray.  Consecrate.
