Day Eleven

St. Louis de Montfort Preparation:

Day Eleven of the 12 Preliminary Days, in which you endeavour to free yourself from the spirit of the world.

  • Prayers to be said today: Veni Creator and Ave Maris Stella
  • Choose your spiritual reading from: Matthew, Chapters 5, 6, 7; Imitation of Christ, Book I, Chapters 13, 18, 25; Book III, Chapters 10, 40
  • Your spiritual exercises: Examine your conscience, pray, practice renouncement, mortification, purity of heart; this purity is the indispensable condition for contemplating God in Heaven, to see Him on earth and to know Him by the light of faith.

“Mary has produced, together with the Holy Ghost, the greatest thing which has been or ever will be – a God-Man; and she will consequently produce the greatest saints that there will be in  the end of time.  The  formation and the education of the great saints who shall come at the end of the world are reserved for her.  For it is only that singular and miraculous Virgin who can produce, in union with the Holy Ghost, singular and extraordinary things.” [True Devotion to Mary:  pg. 21, paragraph 35]

    Immaculate Heart Preparation:

    Some highlights from the reflection for Day Eleven:

    • “I shall now gather together this chosen flock and place you in union with my chosen shepherds.  Bond together for the sake of my Triumph.  Know dear ones, I place my hope in you.  I entrust my heart to you – within you lies the saving grace for mankind.”
    • “Give yourselves in the most virtuous way.  Look to the other first, before yourself.”
    • “Entrust to me all you are, for I shall mold you into what you should become.”
    • When the consecration is made authentically, with true love, it is impossible for the soul not to become transformed…This is because the powers that are brought together in the consecration in such a perfect state and in the intense moment of grace create a transformation that takes place with such magnitude, that it can happen no other way.  God designed this to happen only in this heavenly realm of consecration.
    • To place the soul in the presence of God is the foundation of spiritual life, consisting of three ways:  the avoidance of sin, the practice of virtue, and union with God.
    • …the soul will grow rapidly in grace through its constant unity with God.  This unity contains an infallible rule that love is always increased by the presence of the object loved.
