33 Days to Morning Glory

Next Steps for those who completed 33 Days to Morning Glory:

Fr. Gaitley says, “Okay, well, 33 Days to Morning Glory is a book that prepares us to consecrate ourselves to Mary, so she can, in fact, bring us to that fountain (of Mercy). 33 Days to Merciful Love on the other hand is about drinking from that fountain.”

We might imagine the two consecrations as two steps. In the first step Mary brings us to the foot of the Cross to stand with her and learn from her. In the second step Mary teaches us through the spirituality of two saints, St. Therese of Lisieux and St. Faustina Kowalska, how to drink from the fountain of Mercy, the blood and water that comes forth from the pierced Heart of Jesus.

Jesus told St. Faustina Kowalska, “May daughter, tell the whole world about my inconceivable mercy. I desire that Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially for poor sinners. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon souls who approach the fount of My Mercy.” (Diary 699)
