Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary
Just as the cult of the Sacred Heart includes consecration to this Sacred Heart. In the same way, the consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is one of the points of this devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, which God wants to establish in the world.
This dedication can be done in various ways:
- Father Desgenettes consecrated his parish
- Our Lady asked the consecration of a country
- Several dioceses in the world are dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, etc.
To respond to God’s will, it is appropriate to devote all that belongs to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. To follow the spirit of this devotion, it is proposed to spread the consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary (see Letter of Liaison No. 1). But to do it well, you have to devote oneself first.
Moreover, in 1916, the three moments when the angel spoke about the Immaculate Heart of Mary, each time, he associated the Heart of Jesus. In respond to this insistence of the Angel, it is proposed that each of us devote ourselves to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary, according to his own expression during the appearance of the Lord in autumn 1916.
In addition, to support one another, it seems relevant to try to achieve these consecrations together as much as possible. That is why, with the support of Monsignor Rey, Bishop of Fréjus-Toulon, in 2018, we propose you a consecration to the following dates :
25 march : Annonciation
13 may : First apparition of our Lady at Fatima
2 july : Visitation
15 august : Assomption
7 october : Our Lady of the Rosary
8 december 2018 : Immaculate conception
Those who are already devoted may renew their consecration at this occasion.
To understand the importance of such an act, a 30-day preparation is proposed. For this you will find in the attached files:
o Two explanations about the meaning of this kind of consecration:
- One from Father Alonso who was the archivist of Fatima during 16 years and was in his time one of the best expert of Fatima,
- The other from Father Garrigou-Lagrange, a Dominican,
o The preparation proposed by Saint Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort in his tract on true devotion to the Blessed Virgin.
Father Garrigou-Lagrange and Saint Louis-Marie do not specifically speak about a consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, but what they say about it can be perfectly applied for this type of devotion.
Similarly, St. Louis Marie offers a preparation on 33 days. But the texts he proposes serve for several days. It is therefore possible to reduce to 30 days (see less for those who cannot start until after November 8)
