If you’ve wondered about or wanted to participate in consecration to Jesus through Mary, here’s an opportunity that will interest you. Mary’s Project, directed by CUF advisor Msgr. Charles Mangan, is beginning preparation for consecration/re-consecration to Jesus through Mary starting tomorrow, November 5. The consecration/re-consecration will take place on December 8, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. Materials will be available through the Mary’s Project website.
I received an invitation by email, the text is as follows (view PDF here):
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,Praised be Jesus Christ! Hail Mary! Hail St. Joseph!
Please join us in the Thirty-three days Preparation for Consecration/Re-Consecration Ad Iesum Per Mariam (“To Jesus Through Mary”) as advocated by Saint Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort (1673-1716).
The Preparation begins on Thursday, November 5, 2009 and the Consecration/Re-Consecration occurs on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception – Tuesday, December 8, 2009.
The necessary materials will be posted on www.marysproject.com. Limited copies of the Preparation booklet may be obtained from contacting Mary’s Project [(605) 251-2422 or firstname.lastname@example.org].
Please let us know if you are making the Preparation with us.
Peace be with you always.
Sincerely yours in Jesus, Mary and St. Joseph,
