TOTAL CONSECRATION TO JESUS THROUGH MARY PROGRAM
The Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary Program at Our Lady of Peace Church and Shrine is based on St. Louis de Montfort’s book True Devotion to Mary. This program consists of 33 days of prayer and exercises which help purify souls to prepare one for Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary.
There are two different periods assigned to these exercises:
The first period includes 12 days of exercises employed in casting off the spirit of the world which is contrary to Jesus Christ.
The second period consists of 3 weeks: the first devoted to the Knowledge of Ourselves, the second devoted to the Knowledge of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the third devoted to that of Jesus Christ.
The program also includes going to Confession prior to Consecration and Holy Communion on consecration day with the intention of giving oneself to Jesus Christ as slaves of love by the hands of Mary.
A prayer book with information and instructions will be provided at the start of the program.
In addition to the prayers and exercises, there will be Spiritual Talks by IVE and guest priests starting with an Introductory Talk on the first Saturday at the onset of the 33 days, and every Saturday thereafter until one’s consecration day on November 25, 2017. All Consecration Participants will consecrate together on November 25, the Vigil of the Feast of Christ the King at the 5pm mass at Our Lady of Peace Church & Shrine. Prayers can be recited at one’s home if one is unable to go to the church.
