Total Consecration to Jesus thru MaryThe solemnity of the Annunciation on Wednesday, March 25, is quickly approaching. This is one of six solemnities/feast days St. Louis de Montfort’s consecration offered at Ss. Cyril and Methodius. (This is the Act of Consecration that changed Pope JP II’s spiritual journey.) If this is the anniversary of your Total Consecration, or you are interested in becoming consecrated to Jesus through Mary, I invite you to begin your 33-day preparation on February 20, using Preparation for Total Consecration according to St. Louis de Montfort, by Fr. Hugh Gillespie, SMM found in most Catholic book stores. The preparation period is broken up into four sections, each consisting of prayer, meditations, and reflections to guide you to your day of consecration or renewal. Through serious and prayerful preparation, Mary will lead you to a closer relationship to her Son day by day. The Act of Consecration will take place after the Noon Holy Mass on Thursday, March 26, due to Eucharistic Mission concluding on the March 25.
If you have any questions or would like to make your consecration and to register, please contact: Jenni Hulway, (586) 453-4580
