33 Days to Morning Glory by Fr. Micheal Gaitley MIC

33 Days to Morning Glory; A Do-it-Yourself Retreat in Preparation for Marian Consecration Book description: From Fr. Michael E. Gaitley, MIC, the author of the bestselling book Consoling the Heart of Jesus, comes an extraordinary 33-day journey to Marian consecration with four spiritual giants St. Louis de Montfort, St. Maximilian Kolbe, BI. Mother Teresa of Calcutta, and BI. Pope John Paul II. If you're seeking to consecrate yourself to Marry for the first time or you're simply looking to deepen and renew your consecration, this book is an incredible blessing for even the busiest of people.

My take: 33 Days to Morning Glory is such a wonderful book. Although the idea is to read it every day for 33 days prior to consecrating oneself to Mary, when I first opened the book, I couldn't stop reading. The lives and stories for 4 great saints, St. Louis de Montfort, St. Maximilian Kolbe, Blessed John Paul II and Blessed Mother Teresa draw you in from the first page. Not only were their writes up interesting historically, they burned in my heart "I want to be a great saint like him/her!"

 My husband and I just consecrated May 13, after reading each days' meditation. It was a beautiful journey. Each day there is a simple, short reading that explains what consecration to Mary is and why anyone would want to do it. Unlike previous consecrations we have done where numerous prayers and scriptures are read, this book actually explains all the benefits of having a relationship with Mary, as well as why go to Mary.

  1. This is something I've thought about for a while, but I keep missing the start day so that I end up on a Marian feast!
