“In order to give the suffering and crucified Church of your time my motherly help and a safe refuge, I have brought the Marian Movement of Priests into being and have spread it through every part of the world by means of my book, which traces out for you the road along which you must journey in order to spread my light. With this book, I teach you to live the consecration to my Immaculate Heart with the simplicity of children, in a spirit of humility, of poverty, of trust and of filial abandonment.”
(Message 604, December 31, 1997)
As members, these are our commitments:
In Message #25, “My Faithful Cohort,” Mary explains what is expected of the religious and lay members of her Movement.
“Of the faithful, who are supporters of my Movement, I ask:
1.That they consecrate themselves in a special way to my Immaculate Heart,
“That they consecrate themselves in a special way to my Immaculate Heart, without being concerned for external or juridical bonds, but only for giving themselves completely to me, so that I may dispose freely of their whole being and arrange their whole life according to my plans.
They must let themselves be led by me, like little children. They must begin again to pray more, to love Jesus more, to adore Him more in the mystery of the Eucharist, so that He becomes the sun which illuminates their whole life. What joy and what a gift of love will Jesus in the Eucharist communicate to these faithful who are consecrated to me!
Let them recite the holy rosary every day so as to hasten my great return.” (25ijk)
“This is then the hour to have recourse to the great remedy that the Father offers you to resist the seductions of the Evil One and to oppose the real apostasy which is spreading more and more among my poor children. Consecrate yourselves to my Immaculate Heart.
To everyone who consecrates himself to me, I again promise salvation: safety from error in this world and eternal salvation. You will obtain this through my special motherly intervention. Thus I will prevent you from falling into the enticements of Satan. You will be protected and defended by me personally; you will be consoled and strengthened by me.” (99ijk, May 13, 1976)
2. That they be faithful to the Pope and to the Church united to him.
“That they be faithful to the Pope and to the Church united to him, by a total obedience to his commands, anticipating and seconding his desires, spreading his teachings, defending him from every attack, ready to fight even to the shedding of their blood in order to remain united to him and faithful to the Gospel. There will soon come a time when only those who are with the Pope will succeed in keeping the faith of my Son and being preserved from the great apostasy that will be spread everywhere.” (25 lm)
3.That they must observe the commandments of God . . .
“That they must observe the commandments of God and carry out everything that my Son Jesus has taught so that they may be his true disciples. Thus they will be a good example to all. Let them be just that, especially by an austere manner of life, by repudiating styles which are ever increasingly provocative and indecent, by opposing in every way possible the spread of immoral literature and entertainment and this continual flooding from a sea of filth that is submerging everything. Let them be a good example to all by their purity, their sobriety and their modesty.” (25n-p)
“These faithful children of mine will be called by me and formed for this great task: to prepare this world for the great purification which awaits it, so that at last a new world may be born, completely renewed by the light and the love of my Son Jesus, who will reign over all.” (25r)
We are blessed to have been called by the Blessed Mother to be part of this movement. Through our Cenacles, our Consecration to her Immaculate Heart and her messages, our bonds with religious and lay men and women, our dedication to our Pope, Priests, our Church, we are united with her and our heavenly Father. Let’s share this call to consecration with others so we can bring her Motherly Love to all of God’s children.
