Day 89, Nineveh 90 for Life – Day 33 of Total Consecration

Theme IV

Total Consecration to Jesus Through Mary – Part IV


During this period we shall apply ourselves to the study of Jesus Christ. What is to be studied in Christ?

First the God-Man, His grace and glory; then His rights to sovereign dominion over us; since, after having renounced Satan and the world, we have taken Jesus Christ for our Lord.

Second, His interior life; namely, the virtues and acts of His Sacred Heart; His association with Mary in the mysteries of the Annunciation and Incarnation, during His infancy and hidden life, at the feast of Cana and on Calvary.

33rd Day

Imitation; Book 4, Chapter 11

Of the Necessity of Communion

O sweetest Lord Jesus, how happy is the devout man who feasts at Your banquet, at which there is no other food but Yourself, his only Lover, most desired of all that his heart can desire!

How deeply I long to pour out my heartfelt tears in Your presence, and like the pious Magdalen, to wash Your feet with them. But where is such devotion in me, such copious shedding of holy tears? Surely, in Your sight, and before Your holy angels, my whole heart ought to be inflamed and weep for joy; for I have You with me truly present in this Sacrament, though You are under another form. My eyes could not bear to see You in Your own divine brightness, nor could the whole world stand in sight of the splendor of Your majesty. In concealing Yourself in this Sacrament You have regard for my weakness.

True Devotion: Nos. 261-265

We must do our actions in Mary. Our Blessed Lady is the true terrestrial paradise of the New Adam, and the ancient paradise was but a figure of her. In this earthly paradise we have riches, beauties, rarities and inexplicable sweetness, which Jesus Christ, the New Adam has left here; it was in this paradise that He took His complacence for nine months, worked His wonders and displayed His riches with the magnificence of a God. It is in this earthly paradise that there is the true tree of life, which has borne Jesus Christ, the Fruit of Life, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil, which has given light unto the world. There are, in this divine place, trees planted by the hand of God, and watered by His Divine Unction, which have borne and daily bear fruit of divine taste. It is only the Holy Ghost, Who can make us know the hidden truth of these figures of material things. The Holy Ghost, by the mouth of the Fathers, also styles the Blessed Virgin the Eastern Gate, by which the High-Priest, Jesus Christ, enters the world, and leaves it. By it, He came the first time, He will come the second, by it.

Finally, we must do all our actions for Mary, we must take her for our proximate end, our mysterious means, and our way to go to Jesus Christ. Supported by her protection we must undertake and achieve great things for Christ. We must defend her privileges, when they are disputed. We must stand up for her glory when it is attacked; we must draw all the world, if we can, to her service, and to this true and solid devotion. We must pretend to no recompense for our little service, except the honor of belonging to so sweet a Queen, and the happiness of being united through her to Jesus, her Son, by an indissoluble tie, in time and in eternity.

Consecration Chain Bracelet by St. Louis de Montfort

St. Louis de Montfort strongly recommended, after his own example and that of many other saints, that those who complete the 33-day Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary and make the Act of Total Consecration should wear an outward sign as a reminder and expression of their “holy slavery” to Our Lady in the form of a chain.

St. Louis de Montfort wrote, “It is very praiseworthy and helpful for those who have become slaves of Jesus in Mary to wear, in token of their slavery of love, a little chain blessed with a special blessing … I cannot help but give the warmest approval to those who wear them. They show they have shaken off the shameful chains of the slavery of the devil, in which original sin and perhaps actual sin had bound them and have willingly taken upon themselves the glorious slavery of Jesus Christ. Like St. Paul, they glory in the chains they wear for Christ.”

    Fr. Heilman,

      Fr Heilman,
      Are we beginning a new Nineveh 90? I would be perfectly happy about that…maybe this time for the Pope and Spiritual warfare against him…that was mentioned on ‘Church Militant’ yesterday.
      Thank you so much, I did get the green scapulars~

      Fr Heilman,
      II would be perfectly happy if we were to begin a new Nineveh 90, maybe this time for the Pope and Spiritual warfare against him, and the Church….that was mentioned on ‘Church Militant’ yesterday.
      Thank you so much, I did get the green scapulars~

  • Have yourself a very good day!

  • I just added a brand new list. I hope you all are having a great week. I’m trying new methods to find more links. Check out my site to see the results.

  • I drop a leave a response whenever I like a article on a website or I have something to add to the conversation. It’s caused by the fire communicated in the article I looked at. And after this article. I was actually moved enough to post a thought 😉 I do have a few questions for you if it’s okay. Could it be simply me or do a few of the remarks come across as if they are coming from brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are posting on additional sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Would you list the complete urls of all your community pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  • I believe everything published was actually very reasonable. However, think on this, suppose you typed a catchier title? I am not suggesting your information isn’t solid., however what if you added something that makes people desire more? I mean is kinda plain. You should glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create article titles to grab viewers interested. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to get people excited about everything’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it would make your website a little bit more interesting.

  • Another issue is that video games are typically serious as the name indicated with the most important focus on finding out rather than entertainment. Although, there is an entertainment element to keep the kids engaged, every single game is frequently designed to work towards a specific skill set or programs, such as math concepts or science. Thanks for your post.

  • I hope you all are having a great weekend. I have a new list for you. Read the latest update on how I compiled the list. I’m still surprised by the results.

  • It’s really really great information for becoming a better Blogger. Keep sharing, Thanks

  • You’ve been working hard lately. All that stress has got to be eating at you. Why not take a break and enjoy some cam girls? There’s plenty of them to enjoy at It’s wall to wall babes at this site. You’ll know that right away after your first visit.
