Consecration for Our Times
What do these people have in common?
Consecration to Mary!
St. Thésèse of Lisieux
How about You?
Dr. Mark Miravalle
Marian consecration is not an archaic spirituality but is a living and active means to advance the Faith as a People of God. In 1992, Pope John Paul II developed our understanding of this devotion even further. By dying for another and "consecrating his life to the Immaculate Virgin," Maximilian has become, suggests the Holy Father, a "prophet and a sign of the new era, the civilization of love." Here, John Paul is clearly endorsing the Kolbean example of Marian consecration as a critical element of his "new evangelization" for the third Christian millennium, and St. Maximilian as a primary intercessor.
"Who taught St. Maximilian the joy of giving until it hurt?
Our Lady – to whom he had entrusted everything.
The same will be true of us.
If we entrust ourselves to Our Lady, she will
teach us the joy of loving like Jesus."Mother Teresa
