A Question About Consecration


#1

Hi! I was wondering if it is acceptable to consecrate yourself to more than one aspect of God and/or His Blessed Mother. For example, I said a prayer of consecration in regards to the green scapular :

Eternal Consecration Prayer
greenscapular.org/Adobe/Prayers/2009%20Eternal%20Consecration.pdf

Oh most Merciful Father, today I beg Thee to accept my sincere act of love in consecrating my entire life to Thy Son's most Sacred Heart.  I do this not alone my dearest Father, but through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of the Green Scapular.  With her heart so pierced with the seven sorrows, at the beginning of Thy Son's life until His tortuous death, she cries daily for those who choose not to love Thy Divine Son, Jesus.  Even today with so many souls choosing to spend their eternity in Hell, she longs for our intercession to bring others to know and love our God:  the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We ask then Almighty Father that Thou wouldst permit us to place all these souls in Mother's hands, those whom have touched our life in some way.  We wish to consecrate today our family members, friends, yes even our enemies; to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  We know that Thou, our Divine Majesty, wilt refuse Thy Son nothing, and that Thy beloved Son can refuse His Mother nothing when it comes to the salvation of souls.  I make this act of Eternal Consecration only once, my Merciful Father, and beg Thee to apply its merits to those whom have their names placed on a Green Scapular.  We offer for those souls Thy Son's most beloved Body and Blood in the Holy Eucharist, along with the Rosaries, prayers, joys, sacrifices and sufferings of each day, past and present until the end of our lives.

We know with great confidence that the Queen of the Green Scapular will not rest until she secures the gift of Final Perseverance for all those living souls clothed in her Green Scapular.  She will beckon her Divine Son for, not only the spiritual conversion back to Thee, Eternal Father, but also physical cures of those whose mission on this earth requires Thy Son's gift of a physical healing. 

Most holy Lord, Father Almighty, if it be Thy Divine Will, allow me to serve Thy Son and His Mother daily in this struggle against the infernal enemy, where together in Communion of Thy Son's Divine Mercy, we may bring forth the reign of the Immaculate Heart by placing the entire world on Her Green Scapular.  Amen. 

(Please recite one Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be for Pope Benedict’s intentions and recite the following prayer below daily.)

“Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death. Amen.”

After an experience I had with the Holy Spirit, I would like to consecrate myself to Him, but I just wanted to make sure it was okay to do so after this consecration.

My dear friend

Do all the consecrations you like. The more the merrier. Perhaps the Holy Spirit wants in. If you feel this desire it and all good desires come from Him. So go for it.

God bless you dear friend:thumbsup::slight_smile:

Dear Kera,

My humble belief is that the Communion of Saints and the Holy Trinity have infinite graces to bestow on those practicing the faith. By you didicating yourself to them should bring you many of those graces. The more the better. I’m sure the Lord will be able to handle the situation and distribution. God Bless.
