Family of 11 Children and 3 Grandchildren Consecrated December 9 Feast of the Immaculate Conception

With over 1 million copies of the book in print, we know that many adults have consecrated using Fr. Gaitley's 33 Days to Morning Glory.  I always suggest that married couples consecrate together, even if one of the spouses is involved w/ the parish program and the other is not. Now I am happy to share about a wonderful family with young adults and school age children who have consecrated all together

The Bauer Family of Florida consecrated their entire family to Jesus through Mary on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, this year, December 9, 2013. Charles and Betty have 11 children. ages 29 down to 8. and 3 grandchildren.

Betty wrote "Today was a beautiful day!!! Our family started 33 Days to Morning Glory on November 5th and ended on this BEAUTIFUL Feast Day of the Immaculate Conception! As we prayed the consecration prayer, I was overcome with emotion listening to my children pray it together with Charles and I. I am so blessed. God is so good to me!"

Daughter, Lisette, 14,  said this: "I never thought to give Mary my prayers and to do with them as she wants. I liked how the saints and writer was speaking to you." 

Daughter Therese, 12, added  "I enjoyed reading about what the different saints said about Mary. I thought it was cool that everyone in the family consecrated themselves to Mary at the same time."

This is really exciting to imagine the impact of entire families consecrating to Jesus through Mary. If your family has consecrated or is planning to, please share with me the good news.
