This is the first retreat and will set the foundation for the subsequent two. This Consecration weaves the principal components of the St. Louis de Montfort Consecration through a lens of spirituality identified with St. Thérèse, the Little Flower. It is characterized by simplicity, confidence, and trust. Adults, priests, and children will find a fruitful journey ahead:

This Consecration has been one of the loveliest things of my priesthood. There is something of Heaven about this Consecration and I pray many individuals and families may consider taking up this book. I also humbly invite Shepherds to consider leading their flock in this Consecration. A great harvest lies ahead.

~Bishop John Keenan of Paisley, Scotland

Another Church father shares:

I personally believe that following or using this consecration book will encourage individuals and families to deepen their spiritual life. I therefore seize this opportunity to recommend highly Child Consecration: to Jesus through Mary for priests, religious, seminarians, children, youth, adults, Catholic parishes and Catholic Schools .

~Bishop Philip Davou Dung of Shendam, Nigeria

We humbly invite you to start the journey. There is a whole website ( devoted to the Consecration journey but you will find important links below to help you navigate to the portions which will be needed to make the journey. 

This 40-day retreat is for those in the trenches of suffering and for those yet to be put to the test, for it prepares people to understand that suffering shared by a loving God works in ways nothing else can. 

We highly recommend this book to anyone seeking not only an understanding of the “why” of suffering but also of a consolation that gives one direction and hope.

~Bob & Maureen Digan, miraculous healing of Maureen led to the beatification of the Polish mystic Sr. Faustina Kowalska, now known as St. Faustina

Another Church father shares:

This book written by Dr. Blythe Kaufman is very important for our age when many Christians see redemptive suffering as foreign to human existence . . .This book is a must-read. I recommend it for all Christians and non-Christians alike. It is very important for overall spiritual growth.


~Most Rev. Oliver Dashe Doeme, Bishop of Maiduguri, Nigeria

This book has an Imprimatur conveyed by Archbishop Leonard Blair on October 6, 2023. 


The retreat can be done using a physical book. Information on ordering a book is available through the link below.  We hope to have an online Consecration journey option soon.
