Tomorrow, November 5, 2017, we will be starting Day 1 of our 33-day retreat. This Marian Consecration will culminate on December 8, the Marian Feast Day of The Immaculate Conception.
We have a humble a count of around 39,000 pledges as of this week. Still a far cry from the goal of a million people in simultaneous consecration, Rosary prayer, and Five First Saturdays devotion. The goal doesn’t end though.
The goal of a million pledges goes on
We will continue to push for that wonderful goal of a million voices reaching the high heavens. We will need your help in spreading the word by sharing this pledge and telling your friends and family about A Million Hearts Consecrated to Jesus thru Mary as our Fatima Centennial offering.
To those who want to be included in the December 8 Immaculate Conception feast day, you can still pledge after November 5 and catch up with the daily retreat at your own pace.
There are other Marian feast days when you can end this vigil on a meaningful note. Here’s a shortlist of feasts and alternate dates on when you can start the 33-day retreat:
- for December 12, Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, start on November 9
- for January 1, Feast of Mary, Mother of God, start on November 29
- for February 2, Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, start on December 31
The First Five Saturday Devotion
In observance of the Five First Saturdays devotion, the date of the first Saturday mass for our Fatima Centennial offering is at December 2. Please let this be the beginning of a memorable devotion. You can complete this on the following days in 2018: January 6, February 3, March 3, April 7. Save these dates!
Today November 4 is a first Saturday and you may start your devotion today and end on March 3.
Two versions of the 33-day retreat
For the 33-day retreat, we are offering two different versions. Our print run on Fr. Gaitely’s 33 Days to Morning Glory is limited to 100,000 copies only. To those blessed to have obtained a copy, kindly share it to as many people as you can. As an alternative, we will be publishing here at mariansolidarity.com every day starting tomorrow, November 5, a 33-day retreat based on Bp. Hnilica’s Consecration Preparation for the Triumphant Victory of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. To those who opted in for the 33-day retreat when you pledged, you will receive Bp. Hnilica’s version.
Sidenote: You may notice that the pledge form is in the webpage of mariansolidarity.org. Kindly treat mariansolidarity.com and mariansolidarity.org as the same web entity as we are working on some improvements. Thank you.
