Today is also the Optional Memoria of St Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort. He is well known for his ‘Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary’. Here is one paragraph of the consecration prayer: ‘Hail, then, O immaculate Mary, living tabernacle of the Divinity, where the Eternal Wisdom willed to be hidden and to be adored by angels and by men! Hail, O Queen of Heaven and earth, to whose empire everything is subject which is under God. Hail, O sure refuge of sinners, whose mercy fails no one. Hear the desires which I have of the Divine Wisdom; and for that end receive the vows and offerings which in my lowliness I present to thee’.

‘Whose mercy fails no one …’ May we indeed know this sure truth in our own lives, and may God bless you this day.
