Child Consecration

Day 33

Come, Holy Spirit

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and enkindle in them the fire of Thy love.

V. Send forth Thy Spirit, and they shall be created;

R. And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth. LET US PRAY.

O God, who didst teach the hearts of Thy faithful people by sending them the light of Thy Holy Spirit, grant us

by the same Spirit to have right judgement in all things, and evermore to rejoice in His holy comfort. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen

O Holy Spirit, sweet Guest of my soul, abide in me and grant that I may ever abide in Thee.

     Fall was quickly upon them. Harvesting had begun. Each item had to be harvested in a certain way so as not to damage the plants and to allow more fruit to grow. Mother showed Daisy how to get the biggest harvest that could be attained from the seeds entrusted to Daisy by Father.

     Indeed, the day arrived  when  Father came to the garden. He saw all in order, and on the outdoor table everything was arranged. Daisy had carried the vegetables and flowers to the table, but Mother had arranged them on the table in just a way that they might be most pleasing to Father, as she knew him so well. 

     Father came to the table and smiled. He was very pleased. There would be a big surprise for little Daisy for all her hard work. Father would prepare a feast from all she had grown, and Daisy would be sitting right next to Father to enjoy it.



Recommendations for Consecration Day

     If possible, attend Mass on the day of your Consecration, and make your Consecration following Mass. Confession is also recommended prior to Consecration, if possible. As a special tribute to Jesus Christ and Our Blessed Mother, consider offering a special gift to Them. This  could be a wildflower that  is  placed at the foot of the   Cross.  It could be a candle  that  is  lit in Their honor.  Or  it could be almsgiving. One might consider giving up something that  day  as  an  act  of  sacrifice. Whatever is given, however small, should be given with love.  In this way, it will have immense value to God and His mother, Mary.
