Step 3: Total Consecration

We now invite you to embark on the powerful path of Consecration taken by Pope John Paul II, Mother Teresa and many great saints! You will start by forging a habit of prayer and learning the “Secret of Mary.” Then, you’ll do the 40-Day preparation for Total Consecration to Jesus through His Holy Mother Mary in union with St Joseph. Along the way, you will be given suggestions on how to lead your family into this deepening relationship with the Holy Family & the Holy Trinity.

Why This Step?

Fr Kevin tells you why in this video=>

A)  Defeat Satan

The Blessed Virgin Mary “seeks souls who will consecrate themselves entirely to her, who will become in her hands effective instruments for the defeat of Satan and the spreading of God’s kingdom upon earth.” --St. Maximilian Kolbe

B)  Most effective results

“Mary is the surest, the easiest, the shortest and the holiest of all means of possessing Jesus Christ.”
--St Louis DeMontfort

Prayer Booklet & Video 

If you found out that someone was going to break into your home and hurt your family, wouldn’t you call for help and prepare yourself to defend them? Well, it’s actually true! Someone is prowling around looking for any opportunity to enter your family and do mortal harm! That someone is the Devil. To repel him, call upon God each day through prayer.

“Behold your mother!” (John 19:26)  Jesus spoke these words from the cross to St John and to us all. “And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.” We, too, must obey Christ and take Mary into our homes & our hearts.
