 Today we reflect on the seriousness of our consecration, and that the more seriously we enter into it, the more serious Mary will take it. Mother Teresa's cultural roots in Albania and the heavy emphasis they put on commitment and faithfulness to one's word. She would compare this to a covenant, a biblical concept which implies an exchange of persons (I am yours and you are mine). Finally, we look at this list composed by Fr. Joseph Langford, MC, which outlines Mother Teresa's teachings on the "Covenant with Mary": Mary's Duties My Duties 1. To give of her spirit & heart. 1. Total gift of all I have and am. 2. To possess, protect, and transform me. 2. Total dependance on her. 3. To inspire, guide, and enlighten me. 3. Responsiveness to her spirit. 4. To share her experience of prayer & praise. 4. Faithfulness to prayer. 5. Responsibility for my sanctification. 5. Trust in her intercession. 6. Responsibility for all that befalls me. 6. Accept all as coming from her. 7. To share with me her virtues. 7. Imitate her spirit. 8. To provide for my spiritual & material needs. 8. Constant recourse to her. 9. Union with her heart. 9. Remembrance of her presence. 10. To purify me and my actions. 10. Purity of intention - self denial. 11. Right to dispose of me, of my prayers and intercessions and graces. 11. Right to avail myself of her & energies for the sake of the kingdom. 12. Total freedom in and around me, as she pleases in all things. 12. Right to enter into her heart; to share in her interior life. Today's Prayer: Come, Holy Spirit, living in Mary. Help me to ardently make a Covenant of Consecration with Mary. Ave Maria!
