Total Consecration to Mary, explains St. Louis de Montfort, "consists in surrendering oneself in the manner of a slave to Mary, and to Jesus through her, and then performing all our actions with Mary, in Mary, through Mary, and for Mary" (The Secret of Mary, No. 28).Today starts off the 33-day preparation to the Feast of the Assumption on August 15th, according to St. Louis Marie de Montfort. What a great way to add some prayer and reflection into your daily routine. It's also great because it is bringing people from all over the world together via the internet, where the daily prayers and reflections are posted. To top it off, religious orders from all over have agreed to pray for all those participating in this year's Consecration.
