Welcome to our 33 day Marian Consecration Retreat as we prayerfully anticipate the commencement of the Year of Mercy. Join us as we share the book 33 Days to Morning Glory: A Do-It-Yourself Retreat In Preparation for Marian Consecration by Fr. Michael E. Gaitley, MIC.
The outpouring of love and contentment that fills my heart when spending an afternoon with mom is embodied in her warm embrace as we part ways. We both delight in the moments we spend conversing about the details of our lives and her imparting her wisdom on rectifying my latest woe. How much more than our heavenly mother must relish in our giving of ourselves to her. From the vantage point of our heavenly mother she savors our calls to her and eagerly prepares for the day we come home. Welcoming us home with an embrace we longed to know all our lives.
What does it mean to me to “give myself more intimately” to Mary, my heavenly mother?
Let Us Pray:
Heavenly Father, I thank you for this time to share and reflect more deeply on my relationship with Mary and her role as mother. Jesus help me to relish in her presence and delight in her embrace. Amen
