33 Days to Morning Glory: A Do-It Yourself Retreat
In Preparation for Marian Consecration.
By Fr. Michael Gaitley
Take part in a spiritual, self-guided retreat beginning on November 5th, reading a short 2-3 page chapter about how one of four giants of Marian Consecration lived out his or her consecration to Jesus through Mary. Then, throughout the day, to think and pray about the day’s teaching.
Those taking part should purchase the book and read along. You may already have this book as it was available for free a few years ago in the vestibule of church. On FORMED.org, you can find the retreat in a shortened video form to supplement the book or to be used if the book isn’t available.
At the conclusion of the 33 days, there will be a Consecration to Mary on the Immaculate Conception after each Mass. If you are unable to attend there is a private Consecration on page 123 of the book.
