“Howard” vs Consecration of Russia

Warning: language in the video above. /// In the analogy, just this scene totally out of context from the rest of “Lawless” (I never saw it), I’m the Sheriff who’s complaining about illegal activities and trying to stop them with a warrant. Meanwhile, I’m smacked down by the ne’er-do-wells for trying to uphold the law. So, what’s the analogy?

I say that one can and should consecrate oneself to the Immaculate Heart of Mary which I did as a seminarian, almost having memorized the entire True Devotion of Saint Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort. I wore that book out. That was back in 1980-81. And although I’ve already done this, I say that it’s good to renew this consecration. I’ve done this a zillion times (with shorter forms) throughout my life, even very many times a day.

This is a joy for me. Today, the Annunciation, I was awakened by this joy. I immediately went before the Most Blessed Sacrament in the little chapel in the rectory, carried along by this joy, and renewed my consecration to Jesus through Mary, a great joy, like I was being blessed by heaven, so peaceful.

But now I see so many on the interwebs who play “Howard” in the video above, shrieking:

  • “Once a consecration is made, that’s it, never again! They are fools who repeat a consecration! It’s like baptism! You cannot re-do it! To ‘re-do’ any consecration is to negate, insult any previous consecration! To re-do any consecration is to waste the time of Mary, of Jesus! It is criminal! spittle spittle spittle

In other words, even if a consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary was made many times and that was, as any prayer offered in good faith, acceptable to heaven, that consecration can and should be made again. Why not? Why not have the whole world, not only the Pope and bishops, but all the priests and laity throughout the world do this? That would be great! Every day! Beautiful!

Enter “Howard” once again. Bam!

Goodness… Calm down, “Howard.” You’re such a “Karen.” Join us in the Consecration.

    Thank you for using St. Louis’ entire name. I’ll bet you can really pronounce it, too. I was consecrated to Jesus through His good Mother, Mary today. I really appreciate this article especially.

    Of course an individual can and should renew the consecration of his/herself to the Immaculate Heart of Mary regularly. That is what each of us do when we kiss the Scapula of Our Lady of Mount Carmel when praying the Morning Offering each day. Praying the daily Rosary and wearing the Scapula with devotion is a way of showing our love for and dependence upon our Immaculate Mother, and a way of giving ourselves daily to her service; such is part of the Fatima message. The consecration of the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is both similar and different.
