Dear Family of Mary!
Our Lady has accepted our consecration on October 7, but I still feel the deep desire to pray for the grace to live our consecration. Our Lady gave us this message in 2004:
“Dear children! Also today, I urge you to consecrate yourselves to my Heart and to the Heart of my Son Jesus. Only in this way will you be mine more each day and you will inspire each other all the more to holiness. In this way joy will rule your hearts and you will be carriers of peace and love. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (May 25, 2004)
Our Lady wants us to live our consecration, “more each day.” She wants us to be hers on a daily basis! And so we must remain conscious of our decision. We need to be reminded each day that we have given ourselves to our Mother in a special way. Our lives are no longer our own.
I think we need to read the messages from Our Lady a little bit each day, in order for her desires for us to be fresh in our minds. This is a good way to live our consecration, by listening to Our Lady’s words to us. Since we are devoted to Mary, we naturally need to hear from her!! (Reuben Purchase has been very helpful in showing us how to remember Our Lady’s desires for us, as a way to live our consecration. You can listen to his reflections on Mary TV at this link. https://marytv.tv/from-the-heart/)
I also discovered this beautiful consecration prayer to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and I find it so timely and powerful that I thought I would share it with you. This is a prayer we could pray every day to help us move forward more and more each day. It was written by Pope Pius XI, and is so timely and spot on about the spiritual battles we are in today:
A Solemn Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Most Holy Virgin Mary, tender Mother of men, to fulfill the desires of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the request of the Vicar of Your Son on earth, we consecrate ourselves and our families to your Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, O Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, and we recommend to You, all the people of our country and all the world. Please accept our consecration, dearest Mother, and use us as You wish to accomplish Your designs in the world.
O Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, and Queen of the World, rule over us, together with the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, Our King. Save us from the spreading flood of modern paganism; kindle in our hearts and homes the love of purity, the practice of a virtuous life, an ardent zeal for souls, and a desire to pray the Rosary more faithfully.
We come with confidence to You, O Throne of Grace, and Mother of Fair Love. Inflame us with the same Divine Fire which has inflamed Your own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. Make our hearts and homes Your shrine, and through us, make the Heart of Jesus, together with your rule, triumph in every heart and home. Amen. –Venerable Pope Pius XI
Thank you everyone, for saying yes to Our Lady’s call from Medjugorje. We will see one day how important it has been that we respond to Our Lady’s call!!|
In Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!
