A Piece of the Pastor's Mind 

This past week, many of us here at St. Anthony, myself included, began the process of preparing ourselves for Marian Consecration. But what does consecration mean? Simply put, consecration “is an act in which a person is dedicated to a sacred service, or an act which separates an object, location or region from a common or profane mode to one for sacred use.” In other words, we are separating ourselves from this world and uniting ourselves, through Mary, to the heavenly realm, and in doing so we place ourselves under the protection of our Blessed Mother. The concept of consecrating oneself to Mary can be traced back to the writings of Saint Ephraim the Syrian in the fourth century. This devotion has developed through the years and was influential in the lives of many saints and popes, including Saint Maximilian Kolbe and Pope Saint John Paul II.

Perhaps the most well-known process for Marian Consecration comes from the work of Saint Louis de Monfort. The method of consecration that we are using here at St. Anthony is an adaptation of his work True Devotion to Mary. His goal is holiness, something that we are all called to. It is through this consecration to Mary that we also consecrate ourselves to Christ.

Over the past few days we have had the opportunity to read and contemplate some of the ideas of Saint Louis de Monfort revolving around an emphasis on renewing baptismal promises and giving ourselves to Mary. In the coming weeks as we prepare to make our consecration, our readings will treat us to the lives of Saint Maximilian Kolbe, Saint Mother Theresa and Pope Saint John Paul II. As we continue this journey together, I pray that it is truly a fruitful and spiritually uplifting experience for all of us.
