this is sort of a silly question perhaps… but there’s just one part I don’t understand about the Consecration.
You know how it says that we give all the merits of our prayers, good works, sufferings, etc, to Mary.
So how does that fit into praying the Rosary for someone? we* can *still pray for people, but when we offer the Rosary for an intention, aren’t we asking Our Lady to apply its merits in that way? but if we’ve done the Consecration, it’s up to her to decide… so how does this work? Am I just misunderstanding it? can we pray the Rosary for someone, but still have the merits of it be applied in whatever ways Our Lady chooses?
I’m asking cause I thought of doing the 54 day novena for a particular intention…
