5.  To obtain special graces and protection under Our Lady's sheltering mantle

7.  To hasten the day of the Triumph of Our Lady's Immaculate Heart and the day when Mary and Jesus will reign in all hearts

+ A Personal Invitation to Become One of "Our Lady's Quarter Million" Consecrated Souls +

In March, 1984, our Holy Father, Pope John Paul ll, in communion with the bishops, consecrated the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Then, on October 8, 2000, with over 1,200 Cardinals and Bishops, our Holy Father entrusted the world and the New Millenium to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

At Fatima, Our Lady said :"Jesus wishes to establish devotion to my Immaculate Heart in the world."We fulfill Our Lady's request by Total Consecration to Jesus, through her Immaculate Heart .

Souls consecrated to our Holy Mother are under her protection in a special way, and receive great graces .She will bring us closer to Jesus then we ever could get on our own. Every soul that completes this consecration brings us closer to the day that our Lady prophesized at Fatima :"In the end, my Immaculate Heart will Triumph."

Now you have the opportunity to individually consecrate your life to Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, by completing the Total Consecration founded in the 18th century by Saint Louis Marie de Montfort. The de Montfort Total Consecration is the most complete and most perfect consecration formula to Our Lady. It is the formula personally made and lived by Pope John Paul ll, and recommended by him to us.

The Church grants a Plenary Indulgence, under the usual conditions, to you on the day you complete your Act of Total Consecration , and each time you renew it.

We have provided over   145,000 free Total Consecration packages to date. Our packages consist of  a two page letter, explaining who Saint Louis de Montfort is, and why it is important to complete the Total Consecration, plus  a prayerbook from Montfort publications for the 33 day preparation prior to the Act of Total Consecration. These packages have been mailed to persons from 100 nations who have requested them. Our goal is to get free Total Consecration packages to 250,000 persons desiring to consecrate their lives to Jesus, through Mary.

You too can be one of these Quarter Million consecrated souls ( Our Lady's Quarter Million ) by requesting one of these free packages  from me, Ray Mooney, at my e-mail address : raymooney@myconsecration.org  , or by writing me at our Apostolate mailing address:
