Consecration to Mary – IV

We ourselves do not wish to stand before God as we are.  Realizing our inconstancy, our pride, our sinfulness, we take refuge in Mary.  This love, understanding and appreciation of Our Lady is, of course, something that is learnt as one progresses in the practice of the perfect consecration to her.  We cannot expect results unless we co-operate w/the grace that God offers to us.  That means we do give and live that offering.

‘For the little that is given her, she gives much of what she has received from God.’  We must note here that operative word is ‘given’.  Everything must be given.  Not just once but repeatedly.  Every time there is an opportunity of offering something to Our Lady we should deliberately make that offering.  Gradually we grow in the habit of offering everything to her.

The Immaculate Way
