Total Consecration Update – Week 1


 

Hi Friends,

I hope you’re all settling into the routine as we continue to prepare for Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary on October 7th. We currently have 880 people making the Total Consecration, which is truly AMAZING!!! Thank you for all of your email comments about my show. In response to the requests of those who are too busy to listen to the entire show, I’ve modified the program format as follows:

Monday-Friday show (8 – 9 PM Eastern)
Introduction (5 minutes)
Prayers and Readings (10 minutes)
General Comments, encouragement and any other messages that I want to disseminate (approx. 15 minutes)
Analysis and commentary on the daily readings (approx. 30 minutes)

Saturday-Sunday show (2 – 2:30 PM Eastern)
Introduction (5 minutes)
Prayers and Readings (10 minutes)
General Comments, encouragement and any other messages that I want to disseminate (approx. 5 minutes)
Analysis and commentary on the daily readings (approx. 10 minutes)

Although I’d love you to stick around for the entire program and encourage you to do so, I realize that not everyone can. Therefore, I modified the format to appeal to as many as possible. Let me know how it works out.

We’re currently just past the half way point of the first 12 day section. In this phase, we’re focusing on ridding ourselves of the spirit of the world. Although it can be difficult, it is an important step of the process. I would encourage you to focus on the daily meditations and not try to think ahead. Don’t worry about the Marian aspect of Total Consecration yet. It will be explained in the weeks to come. The purpose of Total Consecration is to get closer to Jesus. In order to do that, we turn to Mary and let her help us. For the remaining days of this first section, however, continue to concentrate on how the spirit of the world is in direct conflict with the spirit of the Lord.

If you missed some of the days, try to make them up by using the book or listening to the podcasts. If it’s not possible, my advice would be to continue moving forward anyway. You can also push back your consecration date. It doesn’t have to be made on October 7. Although it’s recommended that you do it on a Marian feast day, it’s not mandatory. You’ve already made the decision to do the Total Consecration and have momentum on your side. If you quit now and think that you’ll do it in the future, you may never do it!

Please remember to pray for all of us making this Total Consecration. If there’s anything that I can do for you as we move forward, please let me know. It’s my job to help you get through this successfully and it’s a privilege to be able to answer your questions. I’d also like to thank those of you who have made financial contributions to my apostolate. I’m very grateful. Please know that your generosity is responsible for allowing me to continue to spread the “Good News” of the Catholic Faith on a full time basis!

God Bless,
Gary
