Marian Consecration

"Consecration to Mary" means the same as "consecration to Jesus through Mary." Mary's mission is to bring souls into union with her divine son Jesus. In full, "to Mary" is intended to mean "to Mary for the sake of Christ, for the sake of God, for the sake of the Holy Trinity"

“Never be afraid of loving the Blessed Virgin too much. You can never love her more than Jesus did.”

  
– St. Maximilian Kolbe
