Marian Consecration with Aquinas: A Nine Day Path for Growing Closer to the Mother of God
St. Louis de Montfort’s classic Total Consecration to Mary has seen a strong resurgence in recent years, with Catholics around the world consecrating themselves to Our Lady. Building off this momentum, Matt Fradd and Fr. Gregory Pine, O.P. wanted to encourage this closeness to Jesus through Mary, but with a preparation that reflected the Church’s love for St. Thomas Aquinas.
In Aquinas’s writings, they found ample resources for the task. Especially in his preaching, they discovered passages detailing the graces bestowed on Mary and the role afforded her in leading us to Christ. Special inspiration came from a passage where Aquinas describes what motivates religious to consecrate themselves. He writes that it is their great desire to “offer to God all that one has.” Wow! That struck a chord.
This book was written to assist others in offering all that they have in consecration, with the Angelic Doctor as a teacher and guide. After all, it’s not just religious who are called to holiness. We all are!
It is their hope that this method will captivate you like it has for them, and lead you to closer union with Jesus as you offer yourselves to Him through Mary.
