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

Please keep on spreading the pledge to friends and family.


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 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 Kindly treat and as the same web entity as we are working on some improvements. Thank you.

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.
