Consecrated to Mary to cooperate with her apostolic work

As an important step in the development and discovery of their vocations, our brothers who conclude their formative time in Guayaquil (Ecuador), made the Apostolic Consecration to Mary on December 8th, the day on which we also celebrate our 51st anniversary.

At the end of their formative stages of testing and training, we Sodalits carry out our Apostolic Consecration to Mary as an expression of the desire to cooperate with the apostolic work of our Mother Mary by living full apostolic availability in the Sodalitium.

Regarding his consecration, Giancarlo Nuñez, a Peruvian, explains that “it has been, for me, a milestone in my spiritual itinerary of identification with the maternal mission of the Church, as expressed in our Constitutions: to cooperate in the formation of all human beings according to the Image of the Son”.

“The apostolic consecration to Mary has been very significant in my formation”, highlights Benjamin Brazelton, a native of the United States and stresses that this “is a gesture of grateful memory for all that the Virgin has done in my own path of Christian life and vocational.  She felt it as a surrender and a plea for her to continue protecting and walking with her poor son.  Concluding this stage of formation trusting again in her maternal knowledge gives me a lot of confidence to announce the joy of her Son to the world”.

Similarly, Sergio Arrangoiz, from Mexico, points out that “making the Marian Consecration has been like receiving an undeserved invitation from God to serve him in his Church in the manner of Saint Juan Diego, that is, as a humble son of Saint Mary who from his childhood announces the merciful love of God to others and brings them closer to the maternal tenderness of the Virgin”.
