True Devotion to Our Lady

St Louis de Montfort - he seems to be saying, 'Who do you think you are?!'

From Fr Erlenbush:

"In a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence, the Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary (according to the method of St. Louis de Montfort) begins this year on Ash Wednesday (February 22nd) and concludes with the act of consecration on the Feast of the Annunciation (March 26th this year, moved because of the 5th Sunday of Lent).

"This year, the Total Consecration lines up perfectly with the season of Lent! This has only happened three times since de Montfort's death (1716), and it will not happen again until 2164.

"The spirituality of the Total Consecration fits well with Lent: It is the perfect renewal of our baptismal promises, which is precisely what the season of Lent is all about."
