Last year, I got a free copy of the “Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary in the Spirit of St. Louis de Montfort” from ourlady33.com/. This year, I began preparing for the consecration as prescribed in the book but then when I read the instructions on how to consecrate myself, I found out that on the day I was supposed to do this I may not be able to go to confession. May I just go to confession some other day then do the consecration on a feast of Mary after that confession? or will I have to redo the preparation so as to go to confession as prescribed in the book? Will it still be valid if the preparation, confession, and consecration will occur on distant days?
