Dear Brothers and Sisters,
The 33 Day Preparation for total consecration to Jesus through Mary begins with 12 preliminary days of seeking to rid oneself from the spirit of the world. It is obvious that most of us cannot say we are completely free after only 12 days! Nevertheless, St. Louis de Montfort, was wise in his advising us to do this. We need to begin to see the difference between the spirit of the world and the spirit of God if we are to choose Christ above all. Our prayers to the Holy Spirit and to Our Lady are so very important. For prayers and suggested reading see[ HERE]("http://totalconsecration.ageofmary.com/preparation-10.html") Please let us continue to pray for one another, for the Church and for all those in most need of His Mercy.
