Maybe you can help me with this! I love the St. Louis de Montfort consecration, and I pledge it with all my heart. The problem for me is, during the course of my daily, hectic life, I forget to live it out.
I also want to gain a deeper understanding of it. St. Louis is very deep and profound. Do you have any suggestions for incorporating this special sprituality?
The late Blessed Father John Hardon is helpful about this. He was a gifted Marian Catechist
Finally, consecration to Mary means confiding in Mary. Sharing with Mary ones thoughts and desires, and I should add ones fears.
Consecration to Mary means (let me tell the three of you) it means talking to Mary. Let me change the sentence. It means talking with Mary. You never talk to Maryhear itwithout her talking, shall I say, back to you.
Consecration to Mary means not only loving Mary, but telling her in the deepest sense in which these three monosyllables can be used; I love you! And in saying these words all that we are doing is what we are sure Jesus, many times, how many times, in plain simple Aramaic told his mother, I love you.
if during the course of your “daily, hectic life”, you are doing the duty required of you in your particular state in life, you are doing exactly what the Lord and his mother would want you to do.
It’s called the “sacrament of the moment”.
It’s sufficient to begin our days with the intention to glorify God in all that we do—and then go about doing it.
Mother of the Word Incarnate, pray for us.
