BRACE YOURSELVES... I sense a Marian Consecration coming on!

Updated... March 2nd is today! I hope you all are joining us for 33 days of consecration preparation!

Okay, many of you want to do this every year, but like me forget. {EVEN THOUGH, it hanging up on your big white board in your house, in the middle of your homeschool room where you teach your kids. You see the chart on what dates to start your consecration and then for some reason you don't check it that month your supposed to start and realize your a few days too late.}

So ya wanna drop kick Satan don't ya? Wanna spice up your spiritual life right? THIS IS LENT, WHAT BETTER TIME? We are emptying out ourselves and putting our trust in Mary and Jesus. It is the biggest thing you could do this Lent, FOR REAL.  Join me starting March 2nd,  (since there are 29 days in February this year AND because the Solemnity of Feast of the Annunciation is on GOOD FRIDAY- it breaks two rules this year!), in preparing yourselves for consecration to Jesus through Mary. Then on April  4th (again since March 25th is Good Friday this year- they move it to Monday after Easter since it is a Solemnity) we will consecrate ourselves to the Virgin Mary.

AND if that's not enough motivation for you, the Feast of the Annunciation (normally March 25th, again this year it's irregular and moved to April 4th)  is the Feast that St. Louis de Monfort recommends most of all, as the Feast that commemorates the Incarnation. (God taking on flesh, and there by putting his trust in Mary- Mary didn't let God down, she won't let you down!)

Oh and what makes this a great year to do it? It's the Year of Mercy folks. That week you consecrate yourself to Mary, is Easter and Divine Mercy Sunday! WHEW! ISN'T THAT AWESOME? There is a petition going around asking for Pope Francis to declare JP II as Doctor of the Church this year on Divine Mercy Sunday. What a memorable week it might be. Hope to hear you are wanting to participate. Books you can do this through are St. Louis de Monforts True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin- free on that link I provided, or Fr. Michael Gaitley's 33 days till Morning Glory.
