This is a reminder to our members that a Plenary Indulgence is available to them each year on Holy Thursday should they renew their Act of Total Consecration and recommit themselves to working for the promotion of the reign of Jesus through Mary according to the statutes of the Association of Mary, Queen of All hearts.
The Montfort Spirituality website has just posted an 8-video series on Fr. Ralph Benning’s little book, Catechism on True Devotion. This is a fine resource for those who find that from time to time they do have questions on certain aspects of Fr. de Montfort’s teaching about Our Lady or with regard to what is involved in living the Act of Total Consecration.
Visitors to the site may have noticed the appearance of a new page in our navigation tabs: Prayers of the Association. We have just begun work on this area and plan to continue adding to it over the next several days. This collection of prayers includes a number that were composed by St. Louis de Montfort as well as additional materials that have been composed by the Company of Mary (de Montfort Fathers) for the members of the Association of Mary, Queen of All Hearts. All of these prayers have a particular power and value for helping those who have made the Act of Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary to deepen their understanding and appreciation of the full beauty of Fr. de Montfort’s perfect devotion to the Blessed Virgin.
The Montfort Spirituality website has posted a 7-video series on Fr. de Montfort’s beautiful Marian work, The Secret of Mary. This is an excellent resource for any member of the Association who would like a deeper understanding of the spiritual foundations of the Total Consecration and insight into how to truly open one’s life to the full power of this devotion.
The DVDs for this series are available through Montfort Publications.
It is only fitting as we launch the newly redesigned website for the Association that we who have placed all things into the hands of Our Blessed Lady do likewise with this new undertaking as well:
We consecrate this site, great God,
And all of the work that will be undertaken by means of it,
For your glory alone,
Through the Most Holy Virgin Mary, the Queen of all hearts,
To the service of Christ your Son
That the victory of his holy Cross and glorious Resurrection
May shine with ever-increasing brightness against the darkness of the world,
And that the hearts of those who labor in his service
Beneath the banner and protection of the Most Blessed Mother
May be renewed in the strength of that victory
As they labor on behalf of his Kingdom
Who is Lord for ever and ever.
Mary Immaculate, Regina Cordium, pray for us!
