Why Are People Places and things Consecrated to Mary and the Saints?


#1

I understand Consecrating people places and things to God but why Mary and certain Saints such as St Michael?
With out really getting into Fatima or any of the Private revelations that are part of Catholic Culture and not the Deposits of Faith what would Consecrating a country to Mary’s immaculate heart do?
Why not Just Consecrate a country to Jesus? Wouldn’t that mean more?


#2

Consecrating a country to St. Mary places it under her special patronage.


#3

Yes, and mary ‘gives’ it to god.
