“We all know how important the Totus Tuus Marian consecration was to JP II. But what’s striking here is what he identifies as the most pressing reason for him to make this total entrustment to our Lady. He wants to be sure in ministry that he truly receives others as a gift.” – Fr. Ignatius Schweitzer
At the moment when our salvation is being accomplished by Jesus on the Cross, Jesus says to his Mother, “Woman, behold your son!” and he says to his beloved disciple, “Behold your mother!” Is this not the first total consecration to Mary our Blessed Mother?
When we surrender ourselves and our dearest things to Mary, she will determine the hour for their fulfillment, just as she did at Cana. St. Elizabeth of the Trinity discovers this in Claire Dwyer’s next in the series.
