The path of Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary (Marian consecration) was introduced by Saint Louis in the 18th Century.

Blessed John Paul II said of Marian consecration;

” … At one point I began to question any devotion to Mary, believing that, if it became too great, it might end up compromising the supremacy of the worship owed Christ. At that time, I was greatly helped by a book by Saint Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort entitled ‘Treatise of True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin.’ There I found the answers to my questions. Yes, Mary does bring us closer to Christ; she does lead us to him, provided that we live her mystery in Christ. . . . . thanks to Saint Louis, I began to discover the immense riches of Marian devotion from new perspectives.”

Blessed John Paul II’s papal motto Totus tuas reflects his personal devotion and consecration to Mary.

Consecration falls on a Marian feast therefore, preparation begins 33 days before hand, through a series of prayers by St Louis de Montford. Preparation for consecration can begin today, so that consecration falls on the Feast of our Lady of Lourdes, the 11th February. You can follow it on Facebook.

Total consecration to Mary is something that should be undertaken after prayer and reflection, it is not a light hearted decision. To find out more information, or for alternative dates, visit Fisheaters
