From Fr. Michael E. Gaitley, MIC, author of the bestselling book Consoling the Heart of Jesus, comes an extraordinary 33-day journey to Marian consecration with four giants of Marian spirituality: St. Louis de Montfort, St. Maximilian Kolbe, St. Teresa of Calcutta, and St. John Paul II. Fr. Michael masterfully summarizes their teaching, making it easy to grasp and simple enough to put into practice
I wrote this book for one main reason: Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary (Marian Consecration) truly is “the surest, easiest, shortest, and the most perfect means”(True Devotion to Mary) to becoming a saint, and there should be an easy and updated way to dive in to such a blessing. God wants to form saints from the little souls. He wants to form saints according to the pattern of the Immaculate Conception of Mary. Look at it this way: The Immaculate Conception of Mary, the grace whereby she was conceived without the stain of original sin, is an incredible gift of mercy. What’s particularly remarkable is that Mary did nothing to deserve or merit this grace. It was a total gift - won by the merits of her Son. So with us. God is offering the people of our time a powerful and effective way to become great saints, and it’s not because we’re so good. Rather, it’s because our times are so perilous, and God wants his mercy to triumph through Mary. So, he give us poor, sinful souls an amazing gift.So, if you've been thinking about entrusting yourself to Mary for the first time or if you're simply looking to deepen and renew your devotion to her, 33 Days to Morning Glory is the right book to read and the perfect retreat to make.
