St. Louis de Montfort: Total Consecration

Pre-Consecration Preparation:

First, read "True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin," written by St. Louis de Montfort himself and decide for certain whether to consecrate yourself to Jesus through Mary. Read carefully, and don't take this lightly; consecrating oneself has the character of a vow. 

True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin
   Introduction of St. Louis-Marie
Part I: True Devotion to Our Lady in General
 Necessity of Devotion to Our Lady
In What does Devotion to Our Lady Consist
Part II: The Perfect Devotion to Our Lady
 The Perfect Consecration to Jesus Christ 
Motives Which Recommend This Devotion 
The Biblical Figure of this Perfect Devotion: Rebecca and Jacob 
Wonderful Effects of This Devotion 
Particular Practices of This Devotion 
Supplement: This Devotion at Holy Communion


Choose a Day to for Consecration:

Now choose the date of a Marian Feast on which to make the consecration. Whichever Feast you choose will determine the date to begin a 33-day period of spiritual preparation, i.e., you follow spiritual exercises for 33 days, and the next day will be the Marian Feast on which you consecrate yourself.

Because most of our religious orders and confraternities follow the post-conciliar calendar, I list Marian Feasts which are the same on both the traditional and Novus Ordo calendars below so that there will be no "issues" for traditionalists who decide to enroll in the confraternity associated with Montfort's Total Consecration:
