Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Welcome, Mary. A perfect complement to the Enthronement of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in your home is consecrating your home to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Consecration to Mary is surrendering all we have into her hands and allowing her to form in us, through the power of the Holy Spirit, the person of Jesus Christ.
Mary, the Mother of God, invites us to unite ourselves to Jesus through her heart. Just as her heart was united to the Sacred Heart of Jesus from the moment she said “yes”, and Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, she wants to guide us to give birth to Christ in our hearts.
On the Cross, Christ gave us Mary to be our spiritual mother and to take her into our home (ref. John 19:27).
What Do the Saints Say…
– St. Louis De Montfort.
“Mary is the safest, easiest, shortest and most perfect way of approaching Jesus, we never give more honor to Jesus than when we honor his Mother.”
“From Mary, we learn to trust even when all hope seems gone. From Mary we learn to love Christ, her Son. Learn from her to be always faithful, to trust that God’s Word to you will be fulfilled, and that nothing is impossible with God.”– St. Pope John Paul II
Finally, from the Blessed Mother herself:
– Our Lady of Fatima
“Jesus wishes to establish devotion to my Immaculate Heart in the world. I promise salvation to those who embrace it; and these souls will be beloved of God like flowers arranged by me to
adorn His throne.”
