A Treasure


Dear Friends,

Today marks the end of the first week of the Consecration being led by Bishop Johns Keenan of Scotland. The evenings have been, put simply, a treasure. Each night at 9PM local time in Scotland Bishop Keenan comes to speak to us by candle light. As one of our Shepherds, he calls us, the flock, to draw near to him. With joy he has led us in prayer and reflection through the first week of our 33 Day journey. As the book begins with an allegory, Bishop Keenan has used the daily readings in the book and the allegory as a foundation by which he can share yet some of his personal stories to help us understand even more deeply. In many ways, it feels as though we are one of the early apostles drawing close at the fire to hear Our Lord explain all He wishes to teach us. To have a Bishop who so loves Our Lord and Our Lady want to be with us in such a personal way is heart warming. One of the people wrote last night in the comment section "Thank you Bishop John. Its been a long time since I have felt so peaceful and loved before going to sleep." 

      Please consider joining this Consecration. The links to the first 8 days are below. It is never too late to begin. Our Lady wants to help us reach her Son and this Consecration journey is the request we make for this help.

     To join Bishop Keenan live each day at 9PM local time in Scotland (4PM ET), visit his Facebook page. We also have been posting the recordings each day on the website for the Child Consecration book: If you click on the link to view the online Consecration journey, you will be presented with a list of the 33 days of the Consecration. At the bottom of each day of the online Consecration there is a link to watch Bishop Keenan lead the prayers and the readings of that day.

People from all over the world have been joining this Consecration. We have seen comments posted from Australia, Ireland, England, the United States, Austria, Poland, and throughout Scotland. This is in addition to the children joining from many schools in the Paisley Diocese of Scotland as well as priests and parishioners. We thank all those who have joined us, and invite we those that have not yet to come along with us. 

Bishop Keenan is using the book
