Tomorrow I will begin preparing for Total Consecration to Jesus Through Mary. Saint Louis Marie de Montfort proposes that a consecration to Christ through the hands of Mary is an effective way for Christians to live out their baptismal promises.
I’ve been thinking a lot about Mary lately, her relationship with Jesus, her love, her life, and her help. I need it, now more than ever. I am at the point now where I am actually realizing that I cannot do this alone. I absolutely cannot fight sin, temptation, Satan, doubts, stress, and all of my faults without help. Mary is willing and actually desires to help me. Her singular goal is to see Christ glorified, and so she will help me to accomplish that, and nothing else. That’s the kind of help that I need right now.
