Marianist Tuesday

Each day the Marianists throughout the world consecrate themselves to the protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Like the beloved disciple, we accept Mary as a precious gift of God. Moved by Jesus' love for His Mother, we dedicate ourselves to her so that the Holy Spirit, in whose action she cooperates with a mother's love, may form us more fullly in the image of her Son.

By our alliance with Mary, we seek to assist her in her mission of forming in faith a multitude of brothers for her first-born Son. Join with me as we pray today's consceration prayer:

Inspired by your readiness to accept all of the wonders God would work in you, we offer you our desires to conceive in our hearts, bear in our lives, and bing forth into our world Jesus, Son of God, who became your Son for the salvation of all.

Under your care, may we receive your graces of humilty and compassion; may our desires come to fruition, and may we lovingly echo your resposne to God; "Behold the  servant of the Lord."

May the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit be glorified in all places in the Immaculate Virgin Mary. Amen.
