It is recommended that we place ourselves in Mary’s care in a very special way by an Act of Consecration suggested first by St. Louis DeMontfort. This consecration puts ourselves in her hands in a very special way. Mary is pleased when we consecrate ourselves to her. She is then free to help us through that consecration and also free to use us as her instruments of tears and tender love to draw more souls to Jesus. She lives on earth in her own children. She renews in them HER tender compassion, her burning love, and her forgetfulness of self. Our Holy Mother longs that ALL her children long for this perfection of Christ’s love which she as the Dispenser of all Graces can give to her children. This can be obtained by every soul that consecrates himself or herself to Jesus through Mary.
For those who are consecrated, Our Mother comes in pity to help us. She will show us how we have strayed from the path to Her Son and she will always lead us back to the road of Jesus. Even if in your lifetime you stray from her and her Son, she will make every effort to beg on your behalf for mercy from her Son. She is such a tender mother that she will use EVERY means to win mercy for your soul once you have given yourself to her. For those who come to understand this, it should bring great confidence to do great things for God – knowing we are under her help and protection. If we only knew how the enemy is conquered when she is in our midst, we would live as confident children. Think of what a world we would have if more consecrated themselves to her! Come and learn of this secret of Mary.
