100th Anniversary of Fatima: special app for Consecration to Mary

May 13, 2017 marks the 100th Anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima. One of the best ways to prepare for this great 100th anniversary is to engage in the 33-day retreat based on St. Louis de Montfort’s classic Total Consecration to Mary. The consecration preparation begins April 10th and ends 33 days later on the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima – May 13th. The free app, Catholic app Totally YoursTotally Yours iOS | Android – is designed to walk you through the consecration process in its daily retreat format. This is a serious, classic journey of preparing your heart for Jesus through Mary.  Montfort’s  famous devotion was particularly meaningful in the life of St. Pope John Paul II. Developers explain that participating in the full retreat helps lead you to know Jesus Christ more fully.

This retreat, when taken seriously, draws the believer one step closer to the Mother and thereby one step closer to Jesus.” This is a time-honored retreat that takes a lot of self-discipline and reflection. It is difficult for many people to follow the daily course in their busy lives. This app breaks the process down for you in four parts on a set calendar so you can easily track your progress through the full 33-day journey. You will appreciate the journal tab to jot down your reflections. Even if you don’t want to participate in the full 33-day retreat, you can certainly benefit from the instruction, prayers and reflections offered in this app, a wonderful addition to your mobile device.
