…is if I had though of it myself!
My readers know I’m a HUGE Blessed Mother fan – I’ll do anything to promote deeper love for her throughout the world!
BlogTalkRadio host Gary Zimak has devised a magnificent apostolate (this is his third year) by leading his daily radio show listeners through a 33-day prep period that leads to a Total Consecration using Fr. Michael Gaitley’s book, 33 Days to Morning Glory. Not only that, but you can get a free copy of Fr. Gaitley’s book on Gary’s site.
What is Total Consecration? Here’s how Gary explains it:
‘”What exactly is Total (or Marian) consecration? According to Fr. Gaitley, Marian consecration means ‘giving Mary our full permission to complete her motherly task in us, which is to form us into other Christs.’ The preparation period will involve 33 days of meditation and prayer, based on the spirituality of St. Louis de Montfort, St. Maximillian Kolbe, Blessed Mother Teresa and Blessed Pope John Paul II. After making our way through the preparation phase we will then make (or renew) or Total Consecration To Jesus Through Mary on October 7th, the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.”
Interested? You should be. There is nothing more awesome than consecrating oneself to Mary; I know from experience. Once she’s “got you,” she’ll never, ever let go – even if you do.
Here’s the link to Gary’s site so you can learn more about the consecration and order your free book. But hurry, there’s little time left! The prep begins September 2.
