Queen of All Hearts

We are already consecrated to the Lord through our baptism. At the moment of baptism we are born again and made new. For many this act that happened as an infant seems lost in our everyday lives. For St. Louis DeMontfort salvation is a daily struggle, the struggle to grow closer to Jesus. The Incarnation is God touching man but it is a two way interaction as man touched God for the first time in history. What better way to draw closer to Christ than through the very person who brought him into the world, his Blessed Mother!!! If you begin the preparation for consecration today (visit, the consecration will take place on the feast of the Queenship of Mary. The first consequence of this spiritual exercise is Mary's Queenship as St. Louis DeMontfort writes, "Mary is Queen of Heaven and earth by grace, as Jesus is the King of them by nature and by conquest. Now, as the kingdom of Jesus Christ consist principally in the heart or the interior of man - according to the words, "The kingdom of God is within you"(Lk 17:21) - in a like manner the kingdom of the Blessed Lady is principally in the interior of man; that is to say, his soul. And it is principally in souls that she is more glorified with her Son than in all visible creatures, and so we can call her, as the saints do, the Queen of All Hearts."
