Would you like to grow closer to Jesus?
Could you use some help?
Do you wish to become a saint one day?
Beginning on September 4th, I’ll once again be leading Total Consecration To Jesus Through Mary on my daily BlogTalkRadio show. This year, we’ll be using the acclaimed book 33 Days To Morning Glory by Fr. Michael Gaitley as the basis for our 33 day preparation. Even better is that you can order a discounted copy of the book (US or Canada only) from our friends at the Children of the Father Foundation!
What exactly is Total (or Marian) consecration? According to Fr. Gaitley, Marian consecration means “giving Mary our full permission to complete her motherly task in us, which is to form us into other Christs”. The preparation period will involve 33 days of meditation and prayer, based on the spirituality of St. Louis de Montfort, St. Maximillian Kolbe, Blessed Mother Teresa and Blessed Pope John Paul II. After making our way through the preparation phase we will then make (or renew) or Total Consecration To Jesus Through Mary on October 7th, the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.
Why should you consecrate your life to Jesus through Mary? Here are a few reasons…
“The more we honor the Blessed Virgin, the more we honor Jesus Christ, because we honor Mary only that we may more perfectly honor Jesus, since we go to her only as the way by which we are to find the end we are seeking, which is Jesus.” (Saint Louis de Montfort)
“There is no surer or easier way than Mary in uniting all men with Christ.” (Pope St. Pius X)
“We are convinced without any doubt that devotion to Our Lady is essentially joined with devotion to Christ.” (Pope Paul VI)
“If you want to grow in perfection, you cannot advance by yourselves – you need a guide. Hence, when you go to God, go through Mary and with Mary !” (Saint Maximilian Kolbe)

STEP 3 (Tune in to The Gary Zimak Show on BlogTalkRadio beginning on September 3)
Although the actual 33 day preparation period begins on Friday, September 4th, I’ll spend Thursday of that week discussing Total Consecration and providing more information about the process. I’ve led over 2,000 people through Total Consecration over the past 4 years and I’m looking for another big year in 2015. Whether you’re renewing your consecration (like me) or making it for the first time, we’ll walk together over the 33 day preparation period. In addition to my nightly radio show, I’ll be available by email to answer your questions and/or encourage you.
So, get ready and be prepared for your life to change in some BIG ways. Jesus is waiting to get to know you better and Mary is ready to take you by the hand and lead you to Him!
