Child Consecration

A Book for Our Times

Throughout history God has supplied assistance through the Church to meet the challenges particular to each age.

It is challenging to cultivate holiness with the multitude of distractions and the secularism that are ubiquitous today. We have a Heavenly Mother who wishes to help us to find the straight path to her Son. But we need to ask for her help. This Consecration journey is the request we make to Our Blessed Mother for such assistance.

“Child Consecration: To Jesus through Mary—Following in the Spirit of St. Thérèse, the Little Flower is a wonderful means by which children can come to know God’s Blessed Mother in an easy and accessible way. . . . I commend this book to parents and teachers, who will find here a solid and ready means to develop the spiritual and devotional life of children, giving them a firm foundation from which to build their relationship with the Lord and his Church.”

“This Consecration has been one of the loveliest things of my priesthood. There is something of Heaven about this Consecration and I pray many individuals and families may consider taking up this book. I also humbly invite Shepherds to consider leading their flock in this Consecration. A great harvest lies ahead."

Beyond Consecration

Beyond Consecration we must pray a great deal! St. Louis de Montfort states, “The Hail Mary is a Heavenly dew which fertilizes the soul.” Therefore, if we cultivate a practice of prayer, this helps us become more fruitful. The last nine days of the Consecration involved daily prayer of the Rosary. We recommend continuation of this daily practice. In addition to praying at home, it is also extremely helpful to participate in a prayer group such as the Children’s Rosary. This is a prayer group movement for children where the children come together in parishes, schools, or orphanages to pray the Rosary as a prayer group. If there is not a group near you, consider starting one. More information can be found at the group’s website:
