Consecration


#1

What exactly is a consecration? All I can find is information on the consecration of bishops.What exactly does it mean to consecration oneself to (Insert Trinity, Blessed Virgin or Saint XXX here)?

Hi :slight_smile:

oki I’m not exactly sure how to explain… but let’s say you consecrate yourself to the Blessed Virgin Mary. In essence what you’re doing, is you’re giving yourself to her, so that she may lead you closer to Christ. You’re entrusting yourself to her care. It’s a similar idea with the consecration to the Sacred Heart, etc.

Maybe it would help just reading about the various consecrations that exist in the Church :slight_smile:
here are some:
