Skip to comments.Give it all to Mary [Catholic Caucus]

Friends, readers of Vultus Christi, and others often write me asking for intercessory prayer for a particular intention, for the resolution of a crisis, or for the healing of an affliction of soul or body. I take these requests seriously. They can, however, become overwhelming at times. I have, however, found a solution. I entrust them all to Our Blessed Lady. She is our Mother of Good Counsel, ever ready to guide us into the best way of interceding, the wisest way of intervening, the purest way of loving. She is also our Mother of Perpetual Help; that means that she is available everywhere and all the time. She is never far from us, never otherwise occupied. The other evening as I was praying for the many intentions recommended to me, this prayer rose in my heart. I' happy to share it with my readers.
O Mother of Good Counsel, Mother of Perpetual Help, I turn with confidence to thy maternal Heart, and I renew my total and irrevocable consecration to thee.
I am all thine, Most Holy Mary, and all that I have is thine. I give thee my past with its burdens. I give thee this present moment with its anxieties and fears. I give thee my future and all that it holds.
There is no part of my life that is not open to thee, no place so secret, or so darkened by sin that thy presence and thy influence are not wholly and ardently desired there.
I want to be completely transparent with thee, utterly simple, guileless, and childlike. Thou knowest, O Mother, all my preoccupations, all my intentions, and all those recommended to my prayer. Take them, I beseech thee, to thy Immaculate Heart and, as my Advocate and all-powerful intercessor and Mediatrix, present them to thy Son. Seeing them presented by thee and held in thy maternal Heart, there is nothing that He will not do to give to each intention the one response worthy of the infinite mercy and love of His Sacred Heart.
Praying in this way, I can be at rest, for thou art my Mother, and all that I entrust to thee will be, I am sure, received, and considered, and cared for with a Mother's love. Amen.
That’s a very nice prayer. Like Fr. Kirby, when I want to pray for someone, I usually go to Mary, because I know she’ll get it done right.
Such a beautiful prayer. Thank you.
His Excellency, Bishop Edward J. Slattery of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Tulsa, Oklahoma has given Father Mark a special mandate to live under the Rule of Saint Benedict in adoration before the Eucharistic Face of Jesus, offering thanksgiving, intercession, and reparation for all his brothers in Holy Orders. In this way, Father is preparing the foundation of the new Diocesan Benedictine Monastery of Our Lady of the Cenacle. Father Mark is available to the priests and deacons of the Diocese for spiritual and sacramental support in their pursuit of holiness. He is also charged with the spiritual formation of women who desire to dedicate themselves to spiritual motherhood in favour of priests.Such an inspiring priest!
I think I did see that mentioned previously. We used to live in Tulsa, so I keep an eye out for news of the Diocese. Bishop Slattery is my favorite bishop ever. He was very involved with the homeschooling families, completely open and friendly ... very Okie, even if he’s not from there.
Yes she will. And she has for me..
The Hail Mary, the Rosary, is the prayer and the infallible touchstone by which I can tell those who are led by the Spirit of God from those who are deceived by the devil --St. Louis De Montfort.Rosary for Peace
I’ll look at the site in more depth when I have time. Thanks for the promo!
Thank you, Mary! This evening I just learned that my son was accepted to the seminary! Pray for Christopher -
WOW, on the feast day of St. Louis De Montfort? Really? Incredible!!! Prayers for Christopher.
What exactly is it about “caucus thread” that you don’t understand?
Please keep in mind this is a “Catholic Caucus” thread. ONLY Catholics are to respond.

The Archbishop who did the “New” Old Mass at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D. C. Stanidng room only, I heard and some were seated in a side chapel.
**Whenever I feel a little dry spiritually, I click into Vultus Christi**
Or click into the Daily Readings thread, because I usually post Father Mark’s remarks.
Thanks Salvation; I just found that out and read the piece. Quite amazing! The linky is either one or two above your comment ...
Oh, wow! Congratulations to your son.
