Living the Consecration: New Archbishop Message and Resources:

https://sfarchdiocese.org/ihm

A new page on the website of the Archdiocese carries a message from Archbishop Cordileone and offers resources to help us to continue “Living the Consecration” to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. In October 2017, after months of preparation, we celebrated the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary with Mass, Rosary, and procession, and joined the Archbishop in a prayer of consecration. As October 2019 draws near, the Archbishop reminds us: “For this act of devotion to bear fruit, we must continue to live out its meaning in our lives, and, in particular, must observe the practices that Our Lady requested at Fatima. I therefore encourage all of our people to regularly observe these practices of prayer, penance, and adoration.” He urges us to say the rosary, receive the sacrament of penance, and pray before the Blessed Sacrament. To read his complete message, and to find helpful information and resources, visit the website, above.
