As many of you will know we are currently, undertaking the 33 day Preparation for Marian Consecration, to Consecrate on the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary! This has been an incredibly joyful and wonderful experience. Some of the Group are following St Louis de Montfort's Preparation process and some, Fr Michael E Gaitley's "33 Days to Morning Glory" preparation. There are even some following both! Truly this is a huge blessing on us all and it was very unexpected and Spirit Led for us to start this group! God is so Good!
One thing I have found absolutely brilliant about this journey, is that in taking this time to prepare our hearts to be truly lead 'To Jesus, through Mary', it has made me truly wonder just how we can in this time of great difficulty in receiving the Sacraments think about preparing for hearts, minds, bodies and souls for consecration, becoming totally Jesus' through her.
One important part of this is the 'daily examens', there are many versions of this available and i tend to use a different one so I hadnt looked at this version previously and it is quite simply beautiful.
