9 Day Preparation for Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary and St. Joseph – In Union with our Bishops!

9
Day Preparation for Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary and St. Joseph
April 23 – May 1st 2020 
May we join them!
May each of us use this time to
consecrate ourselves to Mary with the help of St. Joseph in order to live fully
for Jesus as they did. Many of us fear that besides the sickness and death this
Wuhan virus is bringing, it is also bringing another even more insidious virus
of communism – as our rights, which we voluntary offered for the good of all,
are now being demanded and even stripped of us in greater and greater ways.
With this in mind, it is comforting to
consider that St. Joseph the Worker’s feast day, on May 1st (the day
of our country’s re-consecration), was instituted, in part, to combat the spread
of communism.  The Pope looked to St.
Joseph, who had guarded Jesus and Mary so diligently, to guard the Church
and its people from this satanic threat.

Also, it is exciting to realize that this first day of the novena is the feast of St.
George, the dragon slayer!
Let us remember we have the
intercession of St. George and all of the saints and angels on our side as we enter
this battle with the evil one that is trying to destroy not only our health,
but our Church and our right to worship and our country (countries) as well.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by
so great a cloud of witnesses, let us rid ourselves of every burden and
sin that clings to us and persevere in running the race that lies before us while keeping our eyes
fixed on Jesus, the leader and perfecter of faith. For the sake of the
joy that lay before him he endured the cross, despising its shame, and
has taken his seat at the right of the throne of God. Consider how he endured such opposition from sinners, in order that you may not grow weary and lose heart. In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood. You have also forgotten the exhortation addressed to you as sons:

“My son, do not disdain the discipline of the Lord
or lose heart when reproved by him;
for whom the Lord loves, he disciplines;
he scourges every son he acknowledges.”
Endure your trials as “discipline”; God treats you as sons. For what “son” is there whom his father does not discipline? Hebrews 12: 1- 7
Remember also that we have the Rosary as our spiritual weapon!
“I am quite sure that we don’t believe
enough in the power of the Rosary.
As you know priests and religious make
a retreat every year. The second day of the retreat I attended this year (2002)
was led by Fr Gabriele Amorth, the exorcist for the diocese of Rome. He told us
that once when he was performing an exorcism the demon said to him, “every Hail Mary is another blow on my
head. If Christians knew the power of the Rosary my power would be finished.”

So in that sense we could say that every Hail Mary of the Rosary is a rose being
given to Our Lady. If we knew the power of the Rosary, the power of Satan would
be finished. David conquered Goliath with a slingshot. We can conquer evil
through the Rosary. When the atomic bomb was dropped in Hiroshima one entire
household in Hiroshima survived. How? They claimed afterwards that it was due
to their praying the Rosary. I think God allows events like the salvation of
that household to occur in order to teach us if we have eyes to see and ears to
hear.”
So, please join me in answering Mary’s call to Pray, pray, pray! I’m putting together
this novena of prayers today to join with the American bishops in consecrating
or (re-consecrating) ourselves to Jesus through Mary on St. Joseph’s feast day! 
Nothing transforms
society and the world around us better than holiness, humility and prayer. We
must hold fast to the belief that with the Rosary even seemingly impossible
situations can change. Our Lady has given us the answer through her messages!
To be confirmed in the power of these
messages, watch this talk by Jesse Romero, who speaks on these 5 stones Our Lady has given us in Medjugorje:
the Rosary, Scripture, Eucharist, Fasting and Confession!
It’s awesome! Be inspired and ignited to live Our Mother’s call now more than
ever and understand more than ever these are spiritual weapons against satan.
Start at 2:50:11:
The actual Novena prayers I’m suggesting are simple:

For the next 9 days, read these short articles I’ll be putting out to help grow in understanding of Consecration and living complete entrustment to God.
Also, please pray during the 3 O’clock hour if possible:


  •  an act of contrition (in place of or in addition
    to confession)
  • an act of spiritual communion (in place of or in
    addition to going to Mass and receiving communion;
  • the Divine Mercy Chaplet
  • the Rosary
Lastly, let us consider:
1. What is Total Consecration?
It is giving ourselves – entrusting ourselves – completely to God in and
through and with Mary.

2. Why should we make our total consecration?
Because, it’s the most important thing we can do
to know and love Jesus more deeply,
to fully become the saints whom God created us to be,
and because it is God’s will for us to do so in order to save the world. To
remind us, Sister Lucia said:


“World war or world peace depends on the practice of … consecration
to the Immaculate Heart of Mary… most of all because that is Our Lord’s will
and also our dearest Heavenly Mother’s.”


3. Things to Consider:
Because Consecration brings about such grace,
is such a powerful means to greater union with God and
because it’s so vitally important not only for us but for the whole world,
know that you will be greatly tempted not to begin this consecration
or to stop once you’ve started.
Satan will tempt you with a million excuses for you not to do it or for why you
can’t continue.
There will be thoughts that come to you against this devotion.
There will be thoughts against making it again as you’ve done it before… and to
what use?
There will be thoughts against Mary
or thoughts against ourselves because satan tells us we are unable or unworthy
or too sinful,
or thoughts against each other regarding the same…
There will be things, activities, commitments that come up – you may miss days
– but I encourage you:
Do not let any of this, or anything stop you!
No other plans are more important.
And once you’ve begun, if you miss a day, don’t give into the temptation to
stop.
Begin again… catch up.

God will meet us where we are!
None of us can or will do this perfectly.
This is not about perfection, but growing in faith and trust.
It is not a test, but a journey with and in the School of Our Lady.
It is a time to draw closer to God and to Truth – in and through His Mother
-who is our secret weapon against satan, who is absolutely crushed by Mary’s
humility as Genesis foretells us:  

“and she will crush your head” Gen. 3:15.

During this time know, remember we are consecrating ourselves to Holy Family – to the big three – Jesus, Mary and Joseph! 

Jesus who has conquered satan, sin and death forever on the Cross! He has already won the victory!
Mary who is the head crusher of satan!
And Joseph, the Terror of Demons!

So we can pray with confidence, entrusting ourselves completely to them, without fear!
Remembering the power of Consecration to change the world! 
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you! Save souls!
