Things that will change your life

It changed mine!

Act of Consecration to Blessed Virgin Mary
Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
I, (Name), a faithless sinner-- renew and ratify today in thy hands, O Immaculate Mother, the vows of my Baptism; I renounce forever Satan, his pomps and works; and I give myself entirely to Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Wisdom, to carry my cross after Him all the days of my life, and to be more faithful to Him than I have ever been before.

In the presence of all the heavenly court I choose thee this day, for my Mother and Mistress. I deliver and consecrate to thee, as thy slave, my body and soul, my goods, both interior and exterior, and even the value of all my good actions, past, present and future; leaving to thee the entire and full right of disposing of me, and all that belongs to me, without exception, according to thy good pleasure, for the greater glory of God, in time and in eternity. Amen.

(St. Louis-De Montfort’s Consecration)

Give alms to poor people

Poor people is not just materially, but also spiritually.

Those who are abandoned, lepers, lonely, sinners…

Give spiritual alms, such as praying for the conversion of sinners, perseverance of the just, relief for souls in purgatory.

Our Lord told to St. Gertrude and St. Faustina that alms are not just materially, but can also be given spiritually.

Spiritual acts of mercy, such as helping the afflicted, consoling the lonely, and by our prayers!

We can also give spiritual alms for the holy souls in purgatory.

Poor is not just materially, but also spiritually.

Always pray for three intentions. For the conversion of sinners, perseverance of the Just, and relief for souls in purgatory.

Offer your rosaries, divine mercy chaplet prayers, masses, holy communions, divine office, and all prayers for these three intentions.

These three intentions is practiced and taught by St. Anthony Mary Claret.

How St. Anthony Mary Claret prayed:

Taken from the Autobiography of St. Anthony Mary Claret

First Means. Prayer
Because, as I have already said, I was driven to work for God’s greater glory and the salvation of souls, I shall now say something of the means that the Lord showed me were the best and most fitting to attain that goal.
The first means I have always employed and still do is prayer. In my opinion, this is the greatest means that can be used for the conversion of sinners, the perseverance of the just and the relief of the souls in purgatory. Hence in my meditations, Masses, recitation of the breviary and other devotions, as well as in my aspirations, I always asked God and the Blessed Virgin Mary for these three intentions.


Before each of your rosaries, divine mercy chaplet, mass, say, Jesus, I pray for conversion of sinners, perseverance of the just, and relief for souls in purgatory.

Jesus I offer you this mass, for conversion of sinners, perseverance of the just, and relief for souls in purgatory
