1) Consecration to Mary represents an outstanding event of grace of our century. It consists of a relationship of belonging to Her, aiming at the total reception of the life of Christ within us.
2) It has its foundation in the universal motherhood of Mary, accepted consciously and lived responsibly in the life of every believer. It is filial by nature and has its biblical foundation in John 19, 26-27.
CONCERNING THE MEDAL IT MUST BE SAID:
1) It is a “sign” that reminds us of the importance of the Consecration to Mary: it has the value of a reminder, a call to the coherence and it is also a witness.
2) It is a gift because it expresses Mary‘s acceptance of our Consecration.
It is also a sign of gratitude to the Church for having consecrated mankind to her as she herself had requested.
