“We want to manifest our love and gratitude to the Blessed Virgin by making a fourth vow of slavery to Mary according to Saint Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort – so as to obtain her indispensable help to prolong the Incarnation in all things.” (Constitutions, 17)
On May 31st 2018, we had the grace of celebrating the Consecration to Mary of 9 novices, by which they gave all that they possess and all that they are to the Blessed Virgen Mary. It is a motive for great joy for the Religious Family to be able to give to Our Blessed Mother all its members, who in this way seek to imitate the Incarnate Word in the best way possible. For 33 days the novices prepared for the Consecration according to the method of Saint Louis Marie Grignon de Montfort and reading his work True Devotion to Mary. After the 33 days of preparation passed, their consecration took place in the Sanctuary Madonna della Mentorella (Capranica – Rome) in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, which was presided by Father Ernesto Caparrós, Provincial Superior. Following the Holy Mass, we had a small celebration, which was accompanied by singing and a festive family spirit.
We give thanks to God for the grace of forming missionaries under the care of the Blessed Virgin Mary, that through their consecration seek to give themselves to her all the more day by day.
“Everything through Jesus and through Mary; with Jesus and with Mary;in Jesus and in Mary; for Jesus and for Mary. In short, simply: Jesus and Mary; Mary and Jesus.”
