With Support of Parliament, Scotland Consecrated to Immaculate Heart of Mary http://www.ncregister.com/blog/joannabogle/with-support-of-parliament-bishops-consecrate-scotland-to-the-immaculate-he #NCRegister
‘We consecrate Scotland to you, all that we have, all that we love, all that we are.’
Scotland has been consecrated to Our Lady, by the Scottish Bishops, with the full support of the Scottish Parliament. The consecration took place at the shrine of Our Lady at Carfin, in the Diocese of Motherwell, attended by a large crowd gathered from across Scotland.
This is an event unique in Scotland’s history, and comes at a time when there is a strong sense of honoring the nation’s history and identity.
A motion passed by the Scottish Parliament says:
That the Parliament recognises that Scotland’s Catholic bishops will consecrate the nation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on 3 September 2017; understands that the bishops will pray for Scotland at the Marian Shrine at the Carfin Grotto, near Motherwell, asking that Scotland be energised with a renewed desire to seek the truth, and understands that at the same time they will pray for all parliamentarians and government, so that they will play their part in building a true civilisation of love and strive to create a place where all people are valued, a place where poor, lonely and marginalised people are not forgotten, and a place where people are free to practise their faith.
Bishop John Keenan of Paisley said, “The Scottish Bishops are the successors of the Apostles in Scotland. Gathering as a College of Bishops in union with Peter, and in whom resides the spiritual authority over Scotland, they invoke this authority for our country to make recourse and intercession to our Mother Mary’s Heart, sure that she will not fail to come to our aid but will entrust us to the care of her beloved Son.”
The consecration is directly linked to Mary’s requests at Fatima. England — long honored as “Mary’s Dowry” following a dedication to her from pre-Reformation times — will be formally consecrated to her in two years’ time, and the English Bishops have proclaimed a period of prayer and preparation for this event.
The consecration prayer involved everyone, and addressed Mary under the title of her Immaculate Heart:
We consecrate Scotland to you, all that we have, all that we love, all that we are. To you we give our minds and hearts, our bodies and souls. We willingly place at your service our homes and our families, our parishes and schools: we desire that all that is in us and around us may belong to you, O Mary, and may share in the benefits of your motherly care.
For your information, our Bishop of Kansas City – St. Joe diocese of Missouri, consecrated our diocese to the Immaculate Heart of Mary along with all the priests of our parishes and parishioners of our diocese were given the opportunity to recite the special individual consecration prayer at all the masses said on Saturday, May 13, and on Sunday, May 14th 2017. Hopefully our so called Bishop of Rome and Pope Benedict will have the courage to do the same for the whole Church along with all the true faithful Bishops of our Catholic Church.
In fact it would be even better if the Bishop of Rome, Pope Benedict and all the Bishops of the world would “consecrate Russia” to the Immaculate Heart of Mary as our Blessed Mother had originally asked them to do 100 years ago.
Was at the consecration of Scotland Rick .Huge turnout from Scottish Catholics ,laity,bishops & priests .A wonderful day if very wet.I think God is beginning to move his people to action as we were infamously the first country in the world to legalise gay marriage.We are now safe in our lady’s hands.
Yes if it’s not to late. Because 100 years is way to long to disobey our Mother’s request from an approved apparition.
Mother Mary The Queen of my Heart…Pray for Peace in the world AMEN!!!
Maybe we can get the bishops of the US to do this.
