Day 1: God Alone - With, In and through Mary - 33 Days to Total Consecration

"I am all yours, and all that I have is yours, O most loving Jesus, through Mary, your most holy Mother" 
(True Devotion, 233).
A few years ago I was woken up in the middle of the night with this understanding that:
Total Consecration is Vitally Important- not just individually but corporately and universally. And I knew to the depths of my being that world peace depends on it!
 as Sister Lucia of Fatima shared:
“World war or world peace depends on …the consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary… most of all because that is Our Lord’s will and also our dearest Heavenly Mother’s." 
And then, 
which I present below and throughout the course of 33 days.

The full consecration program - including both written and video teaching -can be found by clicking here:
Here are parts of it: 

Victory comes only through Mary
St. John Paul II

Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary is the easiest, surest and most perfect means for holiness.
We enter into this Consecration not only for the salvation our own souls, but for the souls of everyone in the whole world!
in this time of great evil and darkness.

For if souls are not saved - then all else is pointless, as:

“Life holds only one tragedy: not to have been a saint.”  
Leon Bloy
Remember, Mary told us in Fatima that  

Consecration to her Immaculate Heart was God’s desire for us and that it would be our hope and the means through which He would save us and the world! 

To me, Consecration to Mary is one of the most humbling things we can do.
This is one of the reasons why I believe it is so transformative!
And this is also why I see it as the easiest and surest way of:
both living out the Divine Will and 
also helping to bring God’s Kingdom about – 
because when we give ourselves completely to God through Mary, 
He is able to have His Way with us, 
so that He is able to live inside of us and through us and work within us – 
in a way He never was able to before (with the help and love and prayers of our Mother)
– So, that then we and our lives and prayers are able to impact the world around us in ways that we can never conceive or imagine!!
Introduction to this Online Guide: 
Each day, I post both a video and written teaching. It is embedded above.

The written teachings are separated into 3 parts:
  • The first part is what Mary and the Holy Spirit have given me to share. (This is also what each video teaching contains).
  • The second part and third parts are optional:
  • Part Two contains profound insights from True Devotion to Mary and St. Louis de Montfort. It is incredible quotes and artwork that are worth pondering.
  • Part Three is wisdom from Fr. Gaitley's inspired book: 33 Days to Morning Glory and from the saints he upholds for us to ponder each week.  
You can watch this video instead of reading any of this online material. This 1st video shares all of this teaching, plus much more information as well. 
The video teachings can stand alone as they enter into Consecration by delving deeply into each mystery of the Rosary and Scripture.
The entire video teachings for 33 days are at the link below. If you choose to watch these videos below, go to the settings tab and speed up the playback to at least 1.25
Please keep and save these links above for ease to enter into this daily

The first 30 minutes  
highlights how Consecration's vital important in saving our souls and the souls of the whole world.
The second 30 minutes is:
Day 1: 
Teaching: Scripture Study that Enters into the Mystery of the Annunciation and the Incarnation - so to help us grow in love and knowledge of Jesus and Mary and of incredible dignity as chosen and redeemed sons and daughters of God.
Day 1: homework: Pray one Hail Mary with the heart, contemplating the Mystery of the Annunciation and the Incarnation of Jesus. 
These 33 days are given to prepare ourselves – to grow in knowledge and love and commitment. It is a time of abandonment and growing in Trust of God. 
Each day we’ll be contemplating God, Mary and ourselves in the Father’s plan of salvation. To do this, it is important that we take time to pray, ponder and respond to the great mysteries of God, with and in and through Mary’s help and guidance.
To the extent we do so, we will grow in faith and holiness. And, as we cast off our sins and attachments, we will become ever more free and more fully alive as the person whom God created us to be, in fulfillment of what Jesus said:   
“I have come that you may have life and have it more abundantly!” (Jn 10:10)

•    It’s essence: Abandonment and Trust - with in and through Mary, leaning on her faith and love when we struggle. Entering into her school of perfect trust in God so that we can abandon ourselves - so to fully live in Him and become the people whom God created us to be. 

  Daily Prayer Program for these 33 Days: 
It is important to make a commitment to strive to pray more deeply, more intensely and with more of your heart during these days of preparation. Here are some guidelines and suggestions for how to live these days. Pray about how you can grow in each of these areas listed below and while living out this prayer program it is especially important to 
Trust in the Truth and Supernatural Reality of God’s Presence within each of them
1. Sacraments
  •         LIVE Grace and Renew our Baptism - renounce sin and Satan
  •         Mass and the Eucharist the Center of our lives
  •         Confession frequently
2. Scripture - Pray and Internalize it daily
  •        To Jelena:
    “I’m going to reveal a spiritual secret to you: if you want to be stronger than evil, make yourself a plan of personal prayer. Take a certain time in the morning, read a text from Holy Scripture, anchor the Divine word in your heart, and strive to live it during the day, particularly during the moment of trials. In this way, you will be stronger than evil.” (Our Lady of Medjugorje, April 19, 1984)
  •        Rosary – With and in Mary, contemplating Scripture and the mysteries of God
3. Fill mind with wisdom of Mary and the Saints
  •         God is sending Mary to earth for she is the Crusher of Satan. Listen to her words.
  •         St. John Paul II – example of life given over – Totus Tuus
  •         St. Maximilian Kolbe – Militia Immaculata every soul consecrated to Mary will save the world
  •         St. Louis de Montfort – Mary will form the greatest saints who ever lived – easiest shortest most sure way to sanctity
  •         St. Mother Teresa and many more
