Consequences Of Entrusting Yourself To Mary


"The easiest and surest way to arrive at falling in love with God is to fall in love with Mary first. When you fall in love with Her, you will want to disappear and to die to yourself like She did. You will desire that the false image of your ego in your heart be replaced by God's image. Likewise, you will then desire to be incapable of your own action, and instead you will desire to fulfill God's will, just as Mary did."

(Behold I Stand at the Door and Knock, pg. 90)



Pray the rosary for the Holy Souls.

i subscribe to "quote of the day." this particular quote was very timely. my family and i recently renewed our total consecration vows. i'm also trying to rally more women to make a total consecration to Jesus through mary, before the year is up.

i pray to become a true slave.

pax Christi - lena

cause of our JOY, ora pro nobis.

Oh yes, this is so true! Your title caught my eye as I am in the process of renewing my consecration right now. Thank you for sharing and witnessing your joy, through Our Lady! Looooooove your pumpkin! We did one that said Ave Maria;-) Totus Tuus!
