Preparation for Total Consecration ...
... to Jesus Through Mary
according to St. Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort
**Congratulations**
Congratulations to the thousands of Faithful in our Diocese who
have made their Act of Total Consecration to Jesus through
Mary.  Thanks be to God!  Thank you for your prayers and Total
Consecration!


**Thank you**
Thank you to all who have helped promote this beautiful
Consecration, to the Faithful who prayed and made their Act of
Total Consecration, to our host Parishes and all who helped in
the Total Consecration Masses, and to our Clergy who celebrated
the Masses. Many thanks to God, Our Blessed Mother, Saint
Joseph, and Saint Louis Marie de Montfort!

God bless you!


**In 2013, the Annunciation was on April 8th.  If I made my Act
of Total Consecration on April 8th, will my Anniversary date be
April 8th, or will it be the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the
Lord?**
The Act of Consecration is made on a Feast Day.  In 2013, the
Annunciation of the Lord was on April 8th.  Those who made our
Act of Total Consecration on April 8th will always have our
anniversary on the Annunciation of the Lord.  Usually, the
Annunciation of the Lord is on March 25th.

"I loved seeing the Angel,
but I loved still more seeing Our Lady.  
What I loved most of all was to see Our Lord in that light
from Our Lady which penetrated our hearts.
I Love God so much!
But He is very sad because of so many sins!
We must never commit any sins again."
~  Blessed Francisco, one of the Three Seers in Fatima ~
