Total Consecration to Jesus Through Mary

Oakland Diocese

  1. Purchase your book online through Amazon or other before July 20.

    Book Title: 33 Day Consecration to Jesus through Mary
    Inspired by St. Louis Marie de Montfort
    Compiled by John Pridmore and Nial Slattery

  2. Begin the Consecration Preparation prayers by reading the specific pages of the book assigned in the schedule sheet provided. Start with Day 1 on July 20, until you complete 33 days. The prayers should be said on the dates specified at your preferred time and place. If you miss a day, try to catch up by reading the day you missed as soon as possible. You will also be receiving daily emails on the prayers.

  3. To enhance your Consecration, you are highly encouraged to watch 1-hour videos on Consecration talks beginning on July 22. These videos will be emailed to you and you can watch them at any time for 5 Saturdays: July 22, July 29, August 5, August 12, and August 19.

  4. Go to Confession within 8 days before or after your Consecration Day.

  5. Your Consecration Day is on Tuesday, August 22, the Feast of the Queenship of Mary. Come to mass on this day at the Cathedral of Christ the Light, at 12:10pm or in the evening at any of the churches in the diocese that are providing the special Consecration masses. The list will be emailed to you as the date draws near. We will all say our Act of Consecration together at the mass/es. (If you are unable to attend the special Consecration Day masses, you may attend any mass on that day/night.)

  6. Receive Holy Communion on Consecration Day offering yourself up as a slave of love to Jesus through Mary.

  7. During this preparation period, try to do some works of mercy, visit the Blessed Sacrament, read the suggested readings, or do some small sacrifices like fasting, etc. to enhance your preparation for Consecration.

  8. After Consecration Day, continue to apply the learnings from your Preparation for Consecration by living the gospels in imitation of the Blessed Mother.
