Yesterday we celebrated the Anniversary of Religious Consecration of our Brothers. Many years ago these Brothers of Mary made public profession in the Society of Mary with the following words:
You do the Math, but the years of consecration to the Church is over 180 years!
For the glory of the Most Holy Trinity, the honor or Mary, and to follow Christ more closely, I vow to observe chastity, poverty and obedience conformably to the Rule of Life of the Society of Mary.
May the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit be glorified in all
places through the Immaculate Virgin Mary.
