Default Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

How can I find out if there has already been a thread on this subject? I need information on how to prepare for Consecration.

Thank you Country Steve--I don't know about this website, but I have been looking for St. Louis De Montfort's Consecration. I actually asked my questions in the beginning "Ask an Apologist" section, but nobody answered and the question never appeared. So I appreciate it!

Thank you all for your responses. I purchased some time ago St. Louis de Montfort's book "True Devotion - Consecration to Mary".

This book does take you through the many steps in preparation for the Consecration; but that is where it is confusing.

The Consecration part appears to need the assistance of a Priest and seems to be a public, group consecration with Confession and Mass as part of the ceremony.

I know that there is a web site where one can do the 33-step preparation with the assistance of a Priest for an individual consecration; but it is an SSPX web site.

Please everyone - don't shout - I am sure the objections to the SSPX are louder than the objections to the Fisheaters site (which I don't find objectional at all).

So, I would like a response from someone who has actually done the preparatory steps and the final Consecration. For an individual would it be a public ceremony?

Try www.myconsecration.org. The organizer of the program was just recently on Catholic Answers Live w/ Patrick Coffin. You can sign up to receive the (free) materials you need to get started. I just submitted my own request for materials.

Wonderful! Oh, and I made a slight mistake in my post above. The gentleman was on Al Kresta's radio program (not Catholic Answers Live).

======================================== ======================

There are many great books about Consecration.

HERE IS ONE FOR YOU.
Consecration
Holiest Virgin, with all my heart I venerate you above all the angels and saints in paradise as the Daughter of the Eternal Father.[ HAIL MARY]
Holiest Virgin, with all my heart I venerate you above all things, the andgels and saints in paradise as the Mother of the only-begotten Son, and I consecrate to you my body with all its senses[ HAIL MARY]
Holiest Virgin, with all my heart I venerate you above all the angels and saints in paradise as the beloved Spouse of the Holy Spirit and I consecrate to you my heart and all its affections, praying you to obtain for me from the Most Holy Trinity and all the graces I need for my salvation [HAIL MARY]

Thanks Jim Roberts for your response; but, it is not a matter of saying a prayer. The Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is a formal process that requires a set number of weeks in preparation for the Consecration. I do have St. Louis de Montfort's book to follow, as I said earlier, but I would like to be part of a structured group.

I have ordered materials as suggested by Silver Spring - not received them yet - but, hopefully, they will be forthcoming.
