Consecration

Consecration to the

Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary

 

By Theresa and Christopher Fleischman

 

    The consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary have both been practiced since the beginning of the Catholic Church, but most recently have been urgently requested by our Lord and Lady through several visionaries.

 

   This devotion was mentioned time and time again to Theresa Fleischman (former Werner), the visionary at St. John Neumann in 1988.

 

   Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus became widely known only since the seventeenth century and was not sanctioned by the Church for general use until the latter part of the eighteenth. The vision given to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque played an important role in establishing this devotion. Our Blessed Lord appeared to her on several occasions and in one of these visions, showed her His Sacred Heart pierced with a wound, encircled with a crown of thorns, surrounded by flames and surmounted by a cross. He commanded her to practice and to teach the devotion to His Sacred Heart to others, promising graces to all who love and adore it.1

 

    Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary has its origin through the writings of many saints throughout the ages. A book titled, “True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin”, written by Saint Louis de Montfort in the late seventeenth century, gives a clear understanding and necessity for this devotion.  The author explains that in order to attain salvation, it is first mandatory to consecrate oneself to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Jesus said in scripture “Those who believe in me shall never die.” So for those who do not know about this devotion to the Virgin Mary, they will learn about this devotion in Purgatory. “The pious and learned Jesuit, Suarez, Justus Lipsuis, a devout and erudite theologian of Louvain, and many others have proved incontestably that devotion to our Blessed Lady is necessary to attain salvation. This they show from the teaching of the Fathers, notably St. Augustine, St. Ephrem, deacon of Edessa, St. Cyril of Jerusalem, St. Germanus of Constantinople, St. John Damascene, St. Anselm, St. Bernard, St. Bernardine, St. Thomas and St. Bonaventure.”2

 

    Saint Louis de Montfort explains that in order to attain a perfect consecration to Jesus, it is necessary to practice the consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary . “That is why perfect consecration to Jesus is but a perfect and complete consecration of oneself to the Blessed Virgin, which is the devotion I teach; or in other words, it is the perfect renewal of the vows and promises of holy baptism.”3 

   

    In 1925, Fatima, Portugal, Jesus and Mary appeared to Sister Lucia, one of the visionaries of Fatima, and requested that the world make reparation for the sins committed against the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. A quote taken form the book “Mother of Christ Crusade” describes the vision.

 

    Our Lady again appeared to Lucia on December 10, 1925, while she was in her room at the convent. The Child Jesus was at Our Lady’s side, elevated upon a cloud of light. Our Lady, resting one hand upon Lucia’s shoulder, held in her other hand a heart surrounded with sharp thorns. The Child Jesus spoke first to Lucia:

 

    Have pity on the Heart of your Most Holy Mother. It is covered with the thorns with which ungrateful men pierce it at every moment, and there is no one to remove them with an act of reparation.

 

  Then Our Lady said to Lucia:

  My daughter, look at my Heart encircled with the thorns with which ungrateful men pierce it at every moment by their blasphemies and ingratitude. Do you at least try to console me and announce in my name that I promise to assist at the hour of death with the graces necessary for salvation all those who, on the first Saturday of five consecutive months, go to Confession and receive Holy Communion, recite the Rosary and Keep me company for a quarter of an hour while meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary with the intention of making reparation to me.4

 

   This message clearly manifests the great love between Jesus and Mary and affirms that the children of God must establish a great love and devotion to both the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary either while living on earth or while suffering in purgatory.

 

    The vision given to Theresa Fleischman on May 26, 1988 in the chapel of St. John Neumann was Our Lady holding the baby Jesus and both had wounds on their hearts and on their faces.

  
The Sacred Hearts

    Venerate the Blessed Virgin's Heart and My most holy Son's Jesus Heart together. For the Lord has given unto the Queen of Heaven the effect of peace to the world. Pray for peace in this world. Yea, the Lord your God rules the earth and all that is in it; yet the prayers of veneration give great joy unto My Being and stirs Me to direct by it. (Message given to Theresa Fleischman on August 1, 1988)

  

  Father Don Stefano Gobbi, an Italian priest, began receiving messages from the Mother of God on July 7, 1973. A quote taken from the book titled “To the Priests, Our Lady’s Beloved Sons”, again expresses the importance of the consecration to Mary.

 

   Give me all the difficulties which you encounter, all the sufferings and the abandonment which you experience. Even Jesus willed to offer to the Father all his sufferings through and with me. And it was thus that, offering my Son freely to the Father, I became true Co-redemptrix.5

 

   The Lord has reclothed me with his light and the Holy Spirit with his divine power, and thus I appear as a great sign in heaven, a Woman Clothed with the Sun, because I have the task of taking humanity away from the dominion of the huge Red Dragon and of bringing it all back to the perfect glorification of the Most Holy Trinity.

   For this I have formed for myself the army of my littlest children, in every part of the world, and I am asking of them that they consecrate themselves to my Immaculate Heart. Thus I am leading them to live only for the glory of God, by means of faith and charity, and I myself am jealously cultivating them in my heavenly garden.

   Then each day I present myself before the throne of my Lord in an act of profound adoration; I open the golden door of my Immaculate Heart; and I offer in my arms all these little children of mine, as I say: ‘Most Holy and Divine Trinity, at the moment when You are being universally denied, I present to You the homage of my motherly reparation, by means of all these little ones of mine whom I am forming each day to your greater glorification. 

   Thus again today, from the mouths of infants and sucklings, the Lord receives his perfect praise.” 5 (MP  May 14, 1989)

    What does it mean to consecrate oneself to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary? As explained by Saint Louis de Montfort, there are both internal and external practices that must be followed.

 

   What does it mean to consecrate oneself to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary? As explained by Saint Louis de Montfort, there are both internal and external practices that must be followed.

 

   Some internal practices are; to offer all of ones happiness, sufferings, prayers, thoughts and acts, each day, to Mary the Mother of God. She will then perfect these sacrifices and present them to Her Son Jesus. As a habit, a person should immediately offer their sufferings or happiness to Mary at the very moment that they occur. In this way, one carries on a constant dialog of love with Jesus and Mary throughout the entire day.

 

   Some external practices are; wearing the Brown Scapular, praying the Rosary each day, reading Sacred Scripture, fasting on bread and water on Wednesday or Fridays, receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation at least every month and attending Mass and receiving Holy Communion every Sunday.

 

   At Fatima, an Angel appeared to the three children and instructed them to offer their sufferings for the following intentions; Jesus for love of thee, for the conversion of sinners and for the reparation of sins committed against the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

 

   Therefore, we believe a wonderful practice, at the start of each new day, is to say the following words,

 

   “Mary my Mother, I offer every thought word and act to you; Jesus for love of thee, for the conversion of sinners and for the reparation of sins committed against the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.”

   

   It is a known fact that Jesus and Mary both suffer much every time a person sins. Since sins are being committed, Jesus’ and Mary’s Hearts are constantly being pierced with thorns. When a person offers their sufferings, prayers or work to Jesus by offering them to His Mother, more people in the world are truly coming back to God and at the same time, Jesus’ and Mary’s Sacred Hearts are being healed with balm.

 

   Shouldn’t we desire to suffer for Jesus and Mary, knowing now that they both are suffering horribly at this very moment due to the abortions, satanic masses, sins of the flesh, violence and killings that occur everyday? If we truly love God we should be more than happy to suffer with Him and His Mother Mary. As stated in the gospel by Saint John (15:13), Jesus said, “Greater love than this no man hath, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”6

 

   Our Lady promises a period of peace if everyone were to consecrate their lives to her Immaculate Heart. A foreshadowing of the era of peace, which is yet to come, occurred in 1942 when Pope Pius XII consecrated Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, ending World War II.  Pope Pius XII along with some Bishops, gathered at the Cathedral of Lisbon and consecrated the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary using these words:

 

   Give peace to the peoples separated from us by error or by schism and especially to the one who professes such singular devotion to thee and in whose homes an honored place was ever accorded thy venerable icon; bring them back to the one fold of Christ under the one true Shepherd…7

 

   The Following spring, Our Blessed Lord appeared to Sister Lucia to express His joy over the consecration. Unfortunately the consecration was incomplete, as the following quote by Sister Lucia to the Bishop of Gurza, her spiritual director states:

 

   Your Excellency, The good Lord has already shown me His pleasure in the act   of the Holy Father and the various Bishops, although incomplete according to His   desire. In exchange, He promises to bring the war soon to an end, but the conversion of Russia will not take place yet: if the Bishops of Spain heed the desires of Our Lord and engage in a true reform of the people… good; if not, she     (Russia) will again be the enemy with which God shall punish them once more.8

 

   The following year, in 1943 on August 15, the feast day of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary into Heaven, World War II came to an end.

 

   So let everyone consecrate themselves to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary! Those who consecrate themselves shall be ready to face the grave tribulations of the future.

 

   In the end there will be peace as the following quote from Our Lady to Sister Lucia promises,

 

   If they heed my request, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace. If not, she shall spread her errors throughout the world, promoting wars and persecutions of the Church; the good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated; in the end, my Immaculate Heart shall triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, which will be converted, and some time of peace will be given to the world.9
