Marian Consecration Anniversary – Mary’s Role in God’s Love Story for Us

Marian Consecration was no easy task. In fact, I am wondering if I was undergoing a spiritual attack of some sort. Nothing seemed to be going right. The weather interfered. Confirmation classes I was teaching interfered. My own stubbornness, lack of understanding, and inability to love better interfered. When it all came together and I got it, …

Marian Consecration Anniversary – God Is Love. I Am Not.

One year ago I made my Consecration to Jesus through Mary on February 11th, the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. I’m still processing the awesome reality of lasting change that can only have come through giving myself in Marian Consecration. I’m still in wonder over God’s Grace permitting a poor wretch like me to Consecrate myself to Jesus’ Immaculate …

Three of the first four meetings were snowed out and made …

Wounds of Divorce & Marian Consecration with Maximilian Kolbe

I’d been struggling before beginning my Marian Consecration. Maybe struggling was too strong a word, but I’d certainly been floundering. It seemed I’d hit brick walls at every turn. Things personally and at home were disappointing. My life coaching website, Strahlen Grace, was not coming together at all. I was frustrated and tired and stuck. I …

Snow Brings Cold & Isolation. DeMontfort Brings Darkness in Marian Consecration

I’d been going through a rough stretch with a feeling that something was missing causing emptiness and aching hunger inside me (Read about this in Part I here). I was plodding along in plans I’d dreamed up years ago, but nothing was going like I’d hoped. I was losing heart and feeling that insatiable, gnawing hunger for more. I wasn’t sure …
