Jamie, Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I have always had an interest, but never a "prompting" if you will. Are the steps outlined here the same ones you use? (I guess the question would be "is this a universal process?")
I already have the kit. I will start too.thanks for the reminder.
Barbara, Yes, it is the same. I have to admit, I only read True Devotion to Mary the first year, all the other years, I've skipped that first step. SO the first year is the hardest!Universal process if it is St Louis De Montfort. I've seen others, but always stick with his process.
Jamie-could you maybe do a post about what consecration means? I've seen many do this, but I'd like more info...
Jamie~ Thank you so much for posting this reminder. St. Louis De Montfort's book,True Devotion to Mary, is one of the greatest treasures of our faith! I say shout it to the world:-)Totus Tuus.
Jamie,I'm actually really embarrassed to say I have that book on my bookshelves and have not yet read it. I will look over the material and read the book and give it much prayerful thought. Thanks.
I will keep you (and all) in my prayers. I enjoy this step every year, which shows me something new each time: something of a blessing and admonishion, which is a blessing, because correction is expected and accepted so I can be all He wants me to be.My time for consecration is right after Lent . . . ;) So my Feast day is The Feast of the Visitation. God bless you all. Don't forget where I'm at in blogland. I'm posting an update later tonight. Love you ladies like my own siblings.
Thank you so much for stopping and commenting!
