WHY GO THROUGH MARY?

She PURIFIES and EMBELLISHES our good works by enriching them with her own merits and virtues.

“It must be noted that our good works, passing through Mary’s hands, are progressively purified. Consequently, their merit and their satisfactory and prayer value are also increased. That is why they become much more effective in relieving the souls in Purgatory and in converting sinners than if they did not pass through the virginal and liberal hands of Mary…the little that we give to the Blessed Virgin is truly powerful enough to appease the anger of God and draw down his mercy.” -St. Louis de Montfort, True Devotion

“The more we honor the Blessed Virgin, the more we honor Jesus Christ, because we honor Mary only that we may more perfectly honor Jesus, since we go to her only as the way by which we are to find the end we are seeking, which is Jesus.” – St. Louie Marie de Montfort

 

WHY DO THE TOTAL CONSECRATION?: 5 Ps

 

  1. PERFECT DEVOTION

* IMITATING THE BLESSED TRINITY. It is the PERPECT DEVOTION because it is in imitation of the Blessed Trinity:
“In giving ourselves to Jesus thru Mary’s hands, we imitate God the Father, who gave His Son only thru Mary..,. God the Son, who inspires us to go to Him using the same means He used in coming to us, that is, thru Mary…, God the Holy Spirit, who bestows His graces and gifts upon us only thru Mary.” -St. Montfort

* PREDESTINED SOUL: St. Louis Marie De Montfort (1673-1716), begins his book Secret of Mary with these words: "Here is a secret, predestinate soul, which the Most High God taught me and which I have not found in any book, ancient or modern. Inspired by the Holy Spirit, I am confiding it to you..."

* BEST LEADS YOU TO DIE TO YOURSELF and allow Mama Mary to shape you into Jesus
“...the most perfect of all devotions is that which conforms, unites, and consecrates us most completely to Jesus… Now of all God’s creatures, Mary is the most conformed to Jesus. It therefore follows that, of all devotions, devotion to her makes for the most effective consecration and conformity to Him. THE MORE ONE IS CONSECRATED TO MARY, THE MORE ONE IS CONSECRATED TO JESUS.” –St. Montfort

 * POPES & SAINTS PRACTISED THE TOTAL CONSECRATION: Among these are Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Mother Agnes de Langeac, Servant of God Frank Duff (Founder of Legion of Mary), Pope Pius IX, Pope Leo XIII who beatified Montfort in 1888, Pope St. Pius X who granted a Plenary Indulgence in perpetuum (in perpetuity) to anyone who would pray and live the Total Consecration, Pope Benedict XV, Pope Pius XI who practiced this devotion ever since his youth, Pope Pius XII who canonized St. Louie Marie De Montfort, Pope Paul VI, and Blessed Pope John Paul II whose motto “Totus tuus” (I am all yours) is the Total Consecration in its shortest form.

Note: There are indeed several true devotions to our Lady.  St. Louie De Montfort identified three kinds: 1.) Devotions without Special Practices which consists in fulfilling the duties of our Christian state, avoiding all mortal sin, performing our actions for God more through love than through fear, praying to Our Lady occasionally, and honoring her as the Mother of God, but without our devotion to her being exceptional. 2.) Devotions with Special Practices which consists of entertaining for our Lady deeper feelings of esteem and love, of confidence and veneration. This devotion inspires us to join the Confraternities of the Holy Rosary and the Scapular, to say the five or fifteen decades of the Rosary, to venerate our Lady’s pictures and shrines, to make her known to others, and to enroll in her sodalities. This devotion, in keeping us from sin, is good, holy and praiseworthy, but it is not as perfect as the third, nor as effective in detaching us from creatures, or in practicing that self-denial necessary for union with Jesus Christ. 3.) The Perfect Devotion: The Holy Slavery of Love is a devotion unknown to many and practiced by very few. This devotion consists in surrendering oneself in the manner of a slave to Mary, and to Jesus through her, and then performing all our actions with Mary, in Mary, through Mary, and for Mary, so that we may do them all the more perfectly with Jesus, in Jesus, and for Jesus. This is the Total Consecration.

 

       2. PLAN OF SALVATION INCLUDES MARY as MEDIATRIX OF GRACE

MEDIATRIX : TREASURER of ALL GOD’S GRACES
“God chose her to be the treasurer, the administrator and the dispenser of all His graces, so that all His graces and gifts pass through her hands.”
                                                                                    – Secret of Mary by St. Louis de Montfort, no.10

MEDIATRIX : PURIFIES OUR WORKS
“It must be noted that our good works, passing through Mary’s hands, are progressively purified. Consequently, their merit, satisfactory and prayer value are also increased.”

MARY MEDIATRIX OF ALL GRACE and the TOTAL CONSECRATION

For us to be able to fulfill God’s great design for our people, we need to see and obey God’s Will for the Philippines regarding two important aspects of Mama Mary’s apparitions in the Carmelite convent of Lipa, Philippines.

1. God decreed that His Mother appear as Mary Mediatrix of all Grace in Lipa in 1948:

*Note that the year before- 1947- was the canonization of St. Louis de Montfort, whom the Holy Spirit had inspired to write the Total Consecration. The practice of the Total Consecration precisely enables Mary to perfectly mediate with Jesus so that the Holy Spirit grants the consecrated soul the virtues and merits of Jesus and Mary in a mysterious and gradual manner that the soul is hardly aware of his growth in holiness.
*Note also that two years before Mary Mediatrix of all Grace appeared in Lipa – 1946 – was the death of Mother Magdalen of Jesus, a Carmelite nun Belgium, whom Jesus had asked to work so that the universal Church declares Mary’s mediation as a dogma or truth.
*The sequence of years- 1946, 1947, 1948- clearly shows that the accomplishment of God’s Will that Mary’s role as Mediatrix be dogmatically recognized is now the honor and responsibility of the Philippines, the “Pueblo Amante de Maria” (a people who loves Mary). Clearly, the spread of both the devotion to Mary Mediatrix of all Grace and the Total Consecration will lead to the universal recognition of Mary’s Mediation.

2. Mary Mediatrix of All Grace asked for the Total Consecration.

September 25, 1948, Mary Mediatrix of All Grace told visionary Teresing Castillo, “I wish you all to consecrate yourselves to me on October 7 and be my slaves.” And on Sept. 26, 1948, “tell your sisters to love one another as true sisters, to be humble and simple because humility and simplicity are the two virtues I love most. Be very good. I am Mary Mediatrix of all Grace.” They consecrated themselves using the formula by Montfort. Note that the Total Consecration is the only consecration where one freely makes himself a slave of Jesus thru Mary, after renouncing Satan forever (the one who enslaves us through the 7 Capital sins of pride, greed, gluttony, lust, sloth, envy, and anger).

 

     3. PROTECTION from THE GREAT TRIBULATION

On April 18, 2011, a visionary from the Philippines asked the Blessed Mother in her prayer,
“Mother, will the cataclysm (Great Tribulation) be also in the Philippines?”

 She got the following response from the Blessed Mother through an inner locution:
“My child, to the extent that you spread the Total Consecration, I will spare my children in the Philippines. Spread it my darling. God speed!” 

To the extent that we spread the Total Consecration, Mama Mary will spare us from the Great Tribulation. The Bible esp. the Book of Revelations and some saints tell us of the Great Tribulation and the Warning (enlightenment of conscience) before Jesus’ Second Coming.

Matthew 24: SIGNS OF THE END TIMES

7For nation shall rise against nation & kingdom against kingdom; & there shall be pestilences, and famines, and earthquakes in places…

21For there shall be then great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, neither shall be.

ST. FAUSTINA’s DIARY, no. 83: “Before I come as the just judge, I am coming first as the King of Mercy. Before the day of justice arrives, there will be given to people a sign in the heavens of this sort: All the light in the heavens will be extinguished, and there will be great darkness over the whole earth. Then the sign of the cross will be seen in the sky, and from the openings where the hands and feet of the Savior were nailed will come forth great lights which will light up the earth for a period of time. This will take place before the last day...  After it will come the days of justice! Let souls have recourse to the fount of my mercy while there is still time!

ST. EDMUND: “I have decreed a great day, in which a terrible judgment will reveal theconsciences of men & they will be tested.”  - God

 

The Blessed Virgin Mary revealed to Fr. Stefano Gobbi in October of 1992:

“Each man will see himself in the blazing fire of the divine truth.  It will be like the judgment but in a smaller scale… what will occur will be something so grand that it will surpass every event that has happened since the beginning of the world.  It will be like a small judgment and each individual will see their own life and everything that they have done, in the same light of God.”

 

JESUS to St. Padre Pio of Pietrelcina: (1950) “The hour of My coming is near! But I will show mercy. A most dreadful punishment will bear witness to the times… Hurricanes of fire will pour forth from the clouds and spread over the entire earth! Storms, bad weather, thunderbolts and earthquakes will cover the earth for two days. An uninterrupted rain of fire will take place. It will begin during a very cold night. All this is to prove that God is the Master of Creation..” But Jesus added too, “Those who hope in me and believe in my words, have nothing to fear because I will not forsake them, nor those who spread My message. No harm will come to those who are in the state of grace and who seek My mother’s protection.” read more on http://www.tldm.org/news/darkness-11-13-98.htm

 

And as Our Lady of Fatima assured Sr. Lucia (1917):

"I will never abandon you, my child. My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God."

Catechism of Catholic Church, no. 675:

“Before Christ's second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the "mystery of iniquity" in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo- messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh.” (Rev.13:7-10)

DON BOSCO’S PROPHECY OF THE TWO COLUMNS

Don Bosco comments about his prophetic dream: "Very grave trials await the Church. What we have suffered so far is almost nothing compared to what is going to happen. The enemies of the Church (persecutions) are symbolised by the ships which strive their utmost to sink the flagship. Only 2 things can save us in such a grave hour: (1) devotion to Mary and (2) Frequent Communion. Let us do our very best to use these 2 means and have others use them every- where." In his dream, the Pope is seriously wounded & dies, but St. Bosco doesn’t comment on it.

Pope Benedict XVI in his Apostolic Letter “Porta Fidei” has announced a “Year of Faith” to take place from 11 October 2012 to 24 November 2013. 

Excerpts from his Apostolic Letter “Porta Fidei”:
“Porta Fidei”: YEAR OF THE FAITH

“In this you rejoice, though now for a little while you may have to suffer various trials, so that the genuineness of your faith, more precious than gold …tested by fire, may redound to praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

(1)…intensify the celebration of the faith in the liturgy, especially in the EUCHARIST,…

(2) “Let us entrust this time of grace to the MOTHER OF GOD, proclaimed “blessed because she had believed”

 

   4. PROPHECY: St. Montfort prophesied that towards the end of time God will raise up great men full of the Holy Spirit and imbued with the spirit of Mary. Thru them, Mary Queen most powerful will work great wonders in the world, destroying sin and setting up the kingdom of Jesus her Son upon the ruins of the corrupt kingdom of the world. These holy men will accomplish this by means of the Total Consecration.

MARY IN SCRIPTURE:
"I will place enmities between you and the woman, between your race and her race; she will crush your head and you will lie in wait for her heel" (Gen. 3:15).
“ A great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun ( Rev. 12:1-6)

“But Mary's power over the evil spirits will especially shine forth in the latter times, when Satan will lie in wait for her heel, that is, for her humble servants …They will be superior to all creatures by their great zeal and so strongly will they be supported by divine assistance that, in union with Mary, they will crush the head of Satan with their heel, that is, their humility, and bring victory to Jesus Christ.” (True Devotion 54)

 

   5.  PASS TO PARADISE

Revelations 20-22 (last book of Bible) tells about The Thousand Years of Peace, The New Heaven and the New Earth, and The Coming of Jesus

Through Total Consecration, the Holy Spirit makes us holy, and holiness is the requirement to enter the Reign of Peace.

Our foundation's vision is “the New Earth of Love, Peace and Joy where Jesus is King because Mama Mary is greatly loved beginning from the Philippines.” By praying the Total Consecration, you become ONE HEART, ONE SOUL inside Mary's heart loving Jesus and the rest of the Trinity. Then you will overflow with love and participate in building this New Paradise through deeds of love. Thru visionary Maria Devine Mercy who receives spiritual guidance within the church, Jesus said, "...I can steer you properly towards the new paradise on earth where you, your family and your loved ones will enjoy the Glorious Life that awaits you for one thousand years. No disease. No shortage of food. No worries. Just love in its purest form." -Message Aug. 14, 2011 www.thewarningsecondcoming.com

 

“It was through the Blessed Virgin Mary that Jesus came into the world, and it is also through her that he must reign in the world.”- St. Montfort

 

To summarize, here are the 5 Ps to be remembered WHY WE SHOULD DO THE TOTAL CONSECRATION:

1. PERFECT DEVOTION

2. PLAN OF SALVATION includes MARY as Mediatrix of All Grace

3. PROTECTION from the Great Tribulation

4. PROPHECY

5. PASS TO PARADISE: The New Earth of Love Peace and Joy
