About The Event
Join us for a 6-week small group gathering on Thursday evenings at 7pm starting 4/27th in preparation for Marian Consecration. Let's get close to the Immaculate Heart of Mary who leads us to her Son Jesus during the Marian Month of May!
Please purchase the book "33 Days to Morning Glory" at this link.
We will read the select readings in the book, ponder the daily reading and questions and meet weekly on Thursday evenings sharing our insights gleaned from our reflections and answers gleaned during the week.
For any questions, please connect with Bonnie Ramirez at firstname.lastname@example.org or zara at email@example.com
We're looking forward to hanging out with you gaining new insights into Marian consecration, and learning how key saints (rockstars of our faith such as St. Maximilian Kolbe, and St. Pope John Paul II) lived their consecration out and how we can live it out as well.
Why the focus on the Blessed Virgin Mary as a profound way to get to know Jesus more intimately? Mary’s greatness lies in her willingness to continue to bring Jesus to the world. She doesn’t draw attention to herself, but to Him. As the Catechism of the Catholic Church notes, “What the Catholic faith believes about Mary is based on what it believes about Christ, and what it teaches about Mary illumines in turn its faith in Christ” (487)
Holy Mary, Mother of God, you have given the world its true light, Jesus, your Son – the Son of God. You abandoned yourself completely to God's call and thus became a wellspring of the goodness which flows forth from him. Show us Jesus. Lead us to Him. Teach us to know and love him, so that we too can become capable of true love and be fountains of living water in the midst of a thirsting world.-~Pope Benedict XVI
