A Million Hearts Consecrated to Jesus thru Mary

My Personal Pledge and Offering for Fatima Centennial Year (1917-2017)

Dear Lady of the Rosary, our Blessed Mother, Queen of Peace, you promised at Fatima, to bring Peace to all mankind. As I join a million of your Filipino faithful – Bayang sumisinta kay Maria – as a fitting end to this Centennial of Fatima (1917-2017), I offer this gift – a spiritual bouquet of prayer, sacrifice and thanksgiving to honor your Immaculate Conception:

This I promise, dear Blessed Mother:

  1. To consecrate myself to your Immaculate Heart, offering to Our Lord the tasks of my daily duty with the sacrifice they demand;
  2. To pray the Rosary (the five decades) daily, whenever possible with my family, especially during the 33 days from November 5 to December 8, 2017.
  3. To observe the devotion to the Five First Saturdays in reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, with Confession, Receiving Holy Communion, and prayer of the Holy Rosary, meditating on the mysteries for 15 minutes.

These, I promise, asking that through your intercession and supplication, your Son will lead our country to true conversion of heart, to a true moral and spiritual renewal in life, to the practice of justice and reconciliation, so that our troubled nation may come to lasting peace.

Accept these promises, dear Blessed Mother. Take them into your own Immaculate Heart, and bring them before your Son, Jesus, that He may take them into his own Sacred Heart. Amen.

I would like to pledge

“My Angel, I wish to ask of my children before they begin their Act of Consecration, before the first word of the pledge of their hearts, that they should examine their interior motive.  This union of our hearts is made from the pure gift of love.  If this is not found to be the motive, the soul must stop, recollect itself and begin only when it is overwhelmed by love for my Immaculate Heart.”

Mother our consecration is an act of love for you only? 

“This is a true Act of Consecration.  An exchange of hearts is a total abandonment to the love of me, and my love for you.  Love is God Father’s only gift; from love comes everything else.  You cannot flourish in this act without the foundation of love.”

I understand Mother.

“My Angel, with this embedded in the center of your heart, I am able to draw each heart along its path to my Son.”

Mother do you desire the soul to move toward you only for this reason?

“Yes my angel, I begin today to prepare the attitude of the hearts to be consecrated.”

I remember.  3-15-93

GUIDANCE

The entire purpose of all is to bring each soul back to its original intended state as sinless before God, as He created them to be from the beginning.  If the entire focus of heaven is to bring the soul back into the perfection for which it was created, the consecration must be realized as an act for the same purpose.  God Father’s beginning plan of sending His Son upon the earth was to bring all souls back to the original intended state, then every act that either one would ask would be for the same reason.

The consecration, therefore, would contain all the redeeming qualities that would be present within Our Lady.  It is an avenue that allows her to fulfill her role as co-redemptrix, and in union with Jesus, she brings His redeeming qualities in the true purpose of the consecration.

DIRECTION

In all our actions to please God, we shall find these marks that we may know whether they have been done truly for God alone: First, if when your task has not been successful, you are not disturbed, but remain as tranquil as if you had attained your goal.

Second, you rejoice in the good done by others, as if it had been done by yourself.  The soul who seeks nothing but the divine will of God, cares not whether it is promoted by another or by oneself.

Third, is not to desire one task more than another, but to be content with whatever is given.

Fourth, in your good works you do not desire thanks or recognition, but to remain, even when maltreated, in the same tranquility of mind, satisfied that you have given joy to God.

Fifth, you shall leave your task at a moments notice into the care of another, disturbing not your peace.  It is by these guidelines we are able to give peace to our soul and bring the most glory to God.

MEDITATION

O’Immaculate Heart of Mary, grant to my soul in its consecration through you, the graces to remain in peace and tranquility in all my actions.  Allow not my own desires to cloud the riches of their harvest.  I pray to never seek my own end in my tasks but to bring your Triumph to its fulfillment.  Give to my soul the grace to accept my task and to complete it from love for Him.  In my YES, may I give to Him all my past, present, and future, joys and sorrows, prayers and sacrifices, all that I am and all the Father shall mold me to become.

 


The Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, Our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; He descended on the hell, the third day He arose from the dead; He ascended into heaven, sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

Consecration

My Queen, my Mother,
I give myself entirely to thee,
and to show my devotion to thee,
I consecrate to thee this day,
my eyes, my ears, my mouth, my heart,
my whole being without reserve.
Wherefore good mother, as I am thine own,
Keep me, guard me as thy property and possession.
Amen.

The Angelus

V. The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary
R. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit

(Hail Mary…)

V. Behold the handmaid of the Lord
R. Be it done unto me according to Thy Word

(Hail Mary…)

V. And the Word was made flesh
R. And dwelt among us.

(Hail Mary…)

V. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

V. Let us pray.
R. Pour forth we beseech Thee O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts, that we to whom the Incarnation of Christ, Thy Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by His passion and cross be brought to the glory of His resurrection, through the same Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

 

For the Virtue of Faith

  1. The Lord’s Prayer
  2. The Glory Be
  3. Prayer to the Holy Spirit
    Come Holy Spirit, enlighten my heart, to see the things which are of God; Come Holy Spirit, into my mind, that I may know the things that are of God; Come Holy Spirit, into my soul, that I belong only to God. Sanctify all
    that I think, say and do, that all will be for the glory of God. Amen.
    12-23-91

O’ Maria

“O’ Maria transform my heart unto thine,
Place around it a wreath of purity, adorned in virtue.
Take my heart, dear Mother, consecrated as your own.
Present it to God Father as an offering from me to you.
Help me O’ Maria in each day to make your heart more known.” 3-19-93

 

Pentecost Prayer

As we say this prayer given to us by Our Lady, may our hearts be opened to recognize and accept the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and may we step forward confidently in this battle for the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart. We are called to become a reflection of Christ – a reflection of the face of God that all may be drawn to – so that His glory may be magnified through our lives.

“My dear children, you bring my Jesus such joy today. I pass to you all a great blessing from God. He desires to create in His children, unity and glory to His Name.” 6-7-92

Pentecost Prayer:

“Spirit of Christ, stir me; Spirit of Christ, move me; Spirit of Christ, fill me; Spirit of Christ, seal me. Consecrate in me Your heart and will O Heavenly Father. Create in me a fountain of virtues. Seal my soul as Your own, that your reflection in me may be a light for all to see. Amen.”  6-7-92

“My Angel, know I come in these days to give all that shall be necessary to fulfill this request of God.  My heart is given to the world from the intense love for it.  Through my Immaculate Heart, this second grace of today may descend upon mankind.  Just as He came from my womb as the Knight of Salvation for the world, so He desires now again to bring His tender and loving heart once more to His children.  He has chosen to give His Sacred Heart again, through my Immaculate Heart.

Therefore, you see my angel, how important is every heart consecrated to my Triumph, for through my heart they shall find His, in a most profound way.

I ask that this call be given to each and every heart, that this intense heavenly grace may melt and mold them into the imitation of my Immaculate Heart. Thus, in this way and only in this way, shall they be drawn through the portal of heaven, and back again to where God has always desired they rest in His light.”  9-29-93

GUIDANCE

From this co-hort belonging to Our Lady shall come the saints and examples for the future.  They will be those who are founded in the Triumph of Her Immaculate Heart and have been tested in fire.  These great souls shall be those filled with zeal, and full of grace – these shall be chosen to be matched against the enemies of God.  The battle shall rage around them and they shall remain singularly focused on Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart.  They shall be illuminated by her light, strengthened by her hand, led by her spirit, supported by her arm and sheltered under her mantle of protection.  By their words and example they shall draw the whole world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  They shall gather many enemies, but shall also bring victories and glory to God.  These are the apostles for the Triumph – joined to Our Lady’s Heart by consecration.

DIRECTION

Devotion to Our Lady is necessary to all people for working out their salvation, it is still even more important for those who accept the call to perfection.  It is not possible to acquire an intimate union with God and the Holy Spirit without a sincere union with Our Lady.  This union carries a great dependence upon her goodwill and maternal instincts.  It is the heart of Our Lady that gains access to the doorway of the narrow road to heaven.  Our consecration calls us into the hidden world within the womb of our mother, Mary; it is filled with all the mysteries of heaven, waiting to be dispensed to those who come humble of heart.  We, called to become the elect, are called into this secret paradise within the Holy Virgin. It is from this mystical realm that we are transformed and conformed into the perfect image of God.  We become the example of unity, conversion and holiness.

MEDITATION

O’Immaculate Heart of Mary, give to my soul the perfection to which it is called.  Grant to my soul the unity that it requires to abide in the call to holiness.  Hide me in your womb, dear Mother, consecrated as your own.  Bring to me illumination to the task I am called to fulfill.  Send me out in the fields of your harvest that I might reap for your Triumph, all souls who long for your embrace.

my whole being without reserve.

“My Angel, I have said to you to bring acknowledgement to the consecration to my Immaculate Heart in all ways.  I desire to protect and guide all those who work diligently for this call.  It is these souls who win great favor in the eyes of God.

Allow me to help you to contemplate the magnitude of God Father’s wish.  It is His desire to have all hearts joined to His, through mine – for it is my heart in which He came to them.  It is His love for me that creates this grace for all souls.

He desires greatly to share the wealth of heaven with all souls, and it is by this merit that He desires to share my heart with them also. 

Time runs short my angel, call all together to be prepared for heaven’s great gift of the consecration to my Immaculate Heart.  Come together so that I may teach all of its importance, and bestow my grace upon the leaders that they will contain the gift of my heart and the power of the Holy Spirit.  That through these gifts they shall evangelize the multitudes, and we, together, may fulfill this most ardent wish of God.

I tell you dear angel, I solemnly request you give your complete devotion and attention to this matter.”  9-23-93

GUIDANCE

In a word, we know that the apostles for these times shall be true disciples of Christ.  They come to teach the message of the gospel in all its truth, with no compromises.  We shall give the narrow way of pure truth, according to the gospel, and not the misrepresentation of the world.  They shall carry on their shoulders the cross, and the rosary in their hands.  Embedded in their hearts is the name of Mary and the reflection of Christ in their eyes.  This is a great army she is harvesting, but it is Our Lady who, by the request of God Father, shall fashion them for the purpose of creating unity by divine grace, through the consecration to her Immaculate Heart.

DIRECTION

Those who shall feel the call of this mission shall find that a flame burns so bright within their hearts,  that nothing can extinguish it, and nothing can soothe it except the warmth and embrace of Our Lady’s heart.  We are chosen to be in her service for the most important battle of all times.  The battle has begun, the signs are evident within the world.  In each day, we continue to fight for its victory.  Through the gift of the cross we shall be strengthened and fortified by its weight.  In the end, we too shall be filled with rejoicing at the moment of resurrection.

When the race is run, and we bow down to receive the crown of victory, we shall find the light that guided our way was the Heart of Our Mother.  She graciously directed our soul down a path that no man could know the pitfalls nor snares laid before us; only she knows and sees.  Our consecration is our guarantee of victory in the end.

MEDITATION

O’Immaculate Heart of Mary, gather us into your mantle of protection, your maternal embrace – into the refuge of your Immaculate Heart.  Help me to know my place in God’s divine plan.

Ave Maria Online Magazine
Extravagant displays of devotion to Mary gets curtailed as world culture emphasizes the rational, scientific and technological aspects of life. There seems to be no more time for the more affective expressions of religion.

  Then, after a while, people get fed up with the absolutely rational and logical culture, and rediscover religion and the affective part of the human soul and its needs.

  And Mary is one of those.

Love and support for Pope Francis
The Church is certainly a human and historical institution with all that entails, yet her nature is not essentially political but spiritual: the Church is the People of God, Holy People of God making its way to encounter Jesus Christ. Only from this perspective can a satisfactory account be given of the Church's life and activity.

  Christ is the Church's Pastor, but his presence in history passes through the freedom of human beings; from their midst one is chosen to serve as his Vicar, the successor of the Apostle Peter.

  Yet Christ remains the center, not the Sucessor of Peter: Christ, Christ is the centre.

A Million Roses for the World
A gift of love, faith and goodwill from the people of the Philippines. Pope Pius IX once said: “Give me an army praying a million rosaries a day and we will conquer the world.” We are not out to conquer the world…but to save it for God to whom it rightly belongs.
