Total Consecration to Jesus Through Mary

A couple weeks ago on Facebook I received, of all things, an invitation to consider making a Total Consecration to Jesus Through Mary. Much has been written about St. Louis deMontfort and this consecration so I will not expound on it here. Except to say that on the day I received the invitation I also found the little book with the readings and prayers that are used in preparation for making the consecration. As of today I am on Day 16 of the preparation.

I also told a friend about the consecration. Little did I know that they, too, had previously made the consecration to Mary through the Militia of the Immaculata! I did that consecration back in the mid-90's but am really being drawn to do the deMontfort consecration and God knows I can use all the help I can get.

My wife and I made our Total Consecration to Mary via St. Louis DeMonfort last year. We started Ash Wednesday and ended on out 1st wedding anniversary.

I am also a member of the MI.

Ken, thanks for your comment at Consecrated to Mary; I hope the day-by-day consecration preparation that I posted in 2008 is of help to you; I found the Rosary Army consecration audio files to be such an excellent resource, if you have a chance to listen to them.

Paul - just one more thing we have in common!

Gabrielle - just found the audio yesterday and am liking it! Now if I could just get it to play on my iPhone!
