What is the Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary?
A promise of love where everything that the family is, has and does is given to Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of the Virgin Mary, to live fully surrendered to the will of the Father.
The family is left in the hands of the Virgin Mary so that she may exercise her role as spiritual Mother, Mediatrix of graces, Advocate and Queen.
The final goal of all consecration is Jesus; The Virgin Mary is the effective means to achieve greater union with Christ and she is a source of maternal protection against Satan.
Through consecration, the members of the family are to become like Saint Joseph, totally dedicated to Jesus and Mary.

Sweetest Jesus, Redeemer of the human race, look at us kneeling humbly in your presence. We are yours and we want to be yours; and to be more firmly united with You, today each one of us voluntarily consecrates himself to Your Sacred Heart.
Many have never met You; many have rejected You, despising Your commandments. Have mercy on one and the other, most benign Jesus, and draw them all to Your Sacred Heart. Reign, Lord, not only over those who have never been separated from You, but also over the prodigal sons who have abandoned You; make them return to their father’s house soon, so that they do not die of misery and hunger. Reign over those who are led astray by error or stopped by discord, and make them return to the port of truth and to the unity of faith, so that soon there will be but one flock and one shepherd. Grant, Lord, to Your Church full freedom and security; grant everyone the tranquility of order; Make that from one end of the earth to the other, only one voice is heard: Praised be the Divine Heart, through whom salvation has come to us; To Him be glory and honor forever and ever. Amen.

Brief Study on Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
In this session, we will discuss what Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary means. This act of total consecration to Mary is a sign of God’s kingdom, and it has several spiritual benefits. Here’s a brief history of this act. And what are the benefits of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary? We will also look at the benefits and signs of total consecration in general.
Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is a spirituality
Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is a specific form of Catholic devotion that is based on the principles of Mariology, the medieval school of theology. It acknowledges Mary as the Mother of the Savior, giving her Son humanity in order to pass on His blessings. The heart of Mary is the seat of the Holy Spirit, the source of all spiritual life.
Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary was first developed during the Middle Ages, where Mary’s heart is regarded as her central center. It is a source of purity and gives her the name Immaculate. Just as Jesus took His sacred humanity from the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the heart of Mary was pierced in union with her Son. Today, Mary is venerated as the Mother of God and gives grace to the Christian soul.
It is an act of total consecration
What is an act of total consecration to Mary? Simply put, total consecration means that you set aside your entire life to serve God. The Church has long advocated this kind of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Pope John Paul II endorsed this act and added a missionary dimension. Today, we can pray to Mary as we seek to live our lives according to her example.
The preparation for total consecration begins 33 days before the Marian feast. After that, you must count backwards 33 days until the Marian feast day. This is the day you will make your act of total consecration. Listed below are Marian feast days and their associated start dates. To begin preparing, choose the Marian feast day that is 33 days before the date of the Act of Total Consecration.
It has spiritual benefits
The physical heart of Mary is a physical manifestation of her sublime love for God, her Divine Son, and mankind. This heart shares the love and affections of interior life and registers them. The physical heart is the most visible organ of spiritual life and merits veneration. In fact, this heart has become a universal feast. The spiritual benefits of consecration to the immaculate heart of Mary are numerous.
During the Fatima apparition, Jesus told his apostles that he would return in glory through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The apostles, in their turn, asked the Immaculate Heart of Mary to grant them peace, mercy, and joy. In addition to this, Jesus explained the purpose of the Five First Saturdays, which deal with making amends for dishonoring Mary. Consecration is also linked to the Holy Eucharist.
It is a sign of God’s kingdom
The Immaculate Heart of Mary shines as a model of the perfect love of God and neighbor. Love conquers all. This is the hymn of charity in the book of 1 Corinthians. Mary’s voice soared to the omnipotent. The consecrated life is a special gift to the Church and an incomparable sign of God’s kingdom. The sanctity of a religious life makes us feel the hope and joy of the kingdom.
There are three levels of Marian devotion: personal, communal, and universal. Whether a person practices Marian devotion on a regular basis or makes an oblation only occasionally, the intention is to increase their love of God and Mary. For example, a priest may want to offer a special prayer to Mary. Others may simply choose to offer a prayer to Mary.
