Collegial Consecration Campaign

In just a few short days, May – the month of Our Lady – will be upon us. Soon after arrives May 13, the 91st anniversary of the first day the Virgin Mary appeared at Fatima.

For that reason, Keeping It Catholic is initating a “Collegial Consecration Campaign.” (For those of you not familiar with Fatima or the still-awaited collegial consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I will also be adding files to this blog during the forthcoming

At any rate, it is so EASY to do for those who love God and His Virgin Mother – and God promises so much in return!

All we have to do:

1. Offer our daily duties as a sacrifice for this particular intention. Begin the day by making the Morning Offering prayer that offers our every thought, word and action of the day to Jesus through Mary. (O my Jesus, in union with the Immaculate Heart of Mary…I desire today to gain every indulgence and merit I can and I offer them, together with myself, to Mary Immaculate, that she may best apply them to the interests of Thy Most Sacred Heart.) Since Our Lord has often revealed it is HIS command that the collegial consecration of Russia must take place, certainly our offerings would apply to this particular interest of His Sacred Heart.

2. Pray the Rosary every day, with the foremost special intention that the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, will command the bishops throughout the world to join him in making the solemn consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

3. Whether or not we have previously made the First Saturday devotions, we can make them again and *keep* making them.

The next First Saturday is just one week from today, Saturday, May 3rd. Each First Saturday throughout the year is a (literal) heaven-sent opportunity to make reparation to God for the five blasphemies committed against the Virgin Mother of God and also to ask for the grace of the collegial consecration.

Imagine the incredible good that could happen – including the conversion of sinners - if each of us would ensure we practiced this devotion of EVERY First Saturday of each consecutive month of the year, and not only for five consecutive months.

4. Forward this message to all those you know who are of good will, asking those whom you know love Our Lord and Our Lady to seriously consider joining us.

5. Finally, to those who do join us, kindly alert us by email that you are participating in Keeping It Catholic’s “Collegial Consecration Campaign.” (Your emails remain private; we simply hope to garner the actual number of people who are spiritually joining us in this critical effort.)

Both Our Lord and Our Lady insisted that it is only through “this means” (the collegial consecration, per above) that Russia will be converted.

Through that conversion, the errors of atheistic communism – which has already spread to so many countries – will cease….and an era of peace will be given to this world.

It is good to hope for the collegial consecration, but we must also pray and sacrifice for this particular intention.

In the love of Christ and His Virgin Mother,
