Consecration to Mary (entrusting ourselves completely to her) brings about a concentration, a magnification of Mary’s help and God’s grace in our lives.
“Magnify the Lord with me,
let us together extol his name.”
“Because of her I shall have
glory among the multitudes
and honor in the presence of
the elders, though I am young.”
*Pick a prayer below. Repeat it each time you do another guide until it’s memorized, then move to the next one.
*God wants YOU (especially children) to help save sinners by praying this prayer every day! In the spring of 1916, God sent the Angel of Peace from Heaven to Fatima, Portugal to teach this powerful prayer to the whole world through 3 children – Lucia age 9, Francisco age 7, and Jacinta 6. This prayer repairs damage caused by people’s sins, draws them back to God, and brings peace to the world! God wants YOU to take part in His work to save sinners. He made it so simple that everyone everywhere can pray this prayer frequently! In Heaven, you’ll see how many people you helped save!
*God wants YOU (especially children) to pray this 2nd prayer to help save sinners! In August of 1916, God again sent the Angel of Peace from Heaven to Fatima, Portugal to teach this 2nd prayer to the world through Lucia – now 10, Francisco – now 8, and Jacinta – still 6. This prayer also repairs the damage caused by people’s sins and helps convert poor sinners! God really wants children and adults to join Him in saving others through this prayer.
On July 6, 1973, Our Lady appeared in Akita, Japan and asked that the expression ‘truly present’ be used to emphasize that Jesus is really and truly present in the Eucharist!
*Why memorize & pray this prayer? The more our love for God grows, the happier we will be on earth and in Heaven! Loving God with all our heart is the first and greatest commandment. -Deut 6:5
Renew your consecration, your entrustment, each day until you die. One way to do that is by praying each morning, “Mother Mary, I entrust myself totally to you this day. I love you. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, save souls.”
When you behold God face to face, you will then see how Our Blessed Lady has been standing beside you at every moment of your life.
