A MOTHER'S CONSECRATION OF HER CHILD TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
I was speaking with a friend a few days ago and she mentioned that when her father was dying in 2016, she asked him what to do with her sisters who were away from the Church, and he said, "Bernadette don't worry about them, your mother and I consecrated all of you to The Blessed Virgin Mary."
I was in awe, yes, I had seen a couple of mothers Consecrating their babies to Our Lady over the years but, not once did it enter into my head that I should do the same. I can't ever remember hearing a sermon telling us to Consecrate our little ones and to pray for them. I suppose most of us older mother's just missed out knowing as Vatican ll took over.
This sin of omission, and with remorse I will beg for Our Lord to forgive me and to be able to make reparation for it by prayers and sacrifices and that Our Blessed Mother will guide my children back to the True Faith.
I then immediately lit a candle in front of Our Lady and consecrated my five adult children begging Her pardon for not having done it years ago, I do hope that in Our Lady's goodness She will overlook my negligence and spiritually take them as Her own. As a couple of my children's friends have just had babies, I thought it would be lovely to give them a copy of the prayer with the extra bonus of having the booklet True Baptism of Holy Mother Church for them in the same leaflet. (See attached pdf file)
Hoping that this will help other mothers who are in fear for their children's salvation.
