Union With God............August 10






"Mary is the echo of God.
If we say "Mary,"
she will answer "God."
That is why union with her
is always followed by union with God."



St. Louis Grignion de Montfort

The echo of God, I like that. I am considering consecrating myself to Mary this October. This was a nice post to keep that consideration in my mind today.

You didn't mention this butwith your Consecration you should also get the book by St. Louis Marie de Montfort " Preparation for Total Consecration" It is incredible 3 weeks of purging and readying yourself for your Consecration.
I also want to leave this thought:Mary isthe guardian of the trasures of God himself. She is capable of being the guardian of the concerns of those who place their trust in her. So Together with the assets of your life, cast all its liabilities - its obligations and duties - into that great sublime heart of hers. In her relations with you, she acts in a manner as if she had no other child but you. You are her first intention.
Taken from the handbook of Legion of Mary p. 40
