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.
That is excellent - exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!
I didn’t know Fr. Hardon was Blessed now!! When did that happen?
