A Do-It-Yourself Retreat In Preparation for Marian Consecration

,Author: Fr. Michael E. Gaitley, MIC

Broadcast at 6pm from  November 5th - December 7th

Week 1. St. Louis de Montfort - question: As we begin our journey to prepare for Marian Consecration, what desires or expectations if any do you have of this journey? (ie, learn more about our Blessed Mother, become closer to Jesus, deepen your prayer life, develop virtues that are similar to Mary’s ie, humility)


Week 2. St. Maximillian Kolbe - Question: expresses Marian consecreation as ‘becoming an instrument in the hands of Mary’ for the purpose of “extending the Kingdom of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus”. How can we become instruments of Mary in our daily lives? What are some tangible ways we can build the kingdom of Christ here on earth.


Week 3. St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta - Question: We learn that St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta experienced great “darkness”; yet, she never abandoned her faith – It only increased. She states “Suffering has to come because if you look at the cross, he has got his head bending down – he wants to kiss you – and he has both hands open wide – he wants to embrace you…Then when you feel miserable inside, look at the cross and you will know what is happening. Suffering, pain, sorrow, humiliation, feelings of loneliness, are nothing but the kiss of Jesus, a sign that you have come so close that he can kiss you” How do these words affect the way we can view suffering and how we deal with it?
How will consecration to Mary help you with dealing with suffering?


Week 4. St. Pope John Paul II - Question: The first apparition at Fatima and the shooting of St. Pope John Paul II in St. Peter’s Square both occurred on May 13th at 5 pm. John Paul II did not consider this as a coincidence. Have you experienced any coincidences in your life? Do you believe as did John Paul, that “in the designs of Providence, there are no more coincidences”? If so, what do you believe God is saying through such “God-incidences” in your life?


Week 5. Now that we have nearly arrived at the end of our preparation for Consecration to Mary, what signs have you had in prayer or insights or events that may have confirmed for you that God desires your consecration to Jesus through Mary?
