Summary of the Course

In Fatima, Our Lady promised, “In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph!” In anticipation of the coming of this reign, we contemplate an increasingly chaotic world devastated by crises of all kinds. Above all, a spiritual crisis in which people have lost the meaning of life. In this sad situation, there is nothing better than to look for the solution in the arms of Our Lady.

St. Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort, in his Treatise on True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin, affirms that it was through the Blessed Virgin that Jesus Christ came into the world and that it is also through Her that He must reign in the world. The Heralds of the Gospel are dedicated to bringing you the opportunity to know St. Louis de Montfort’s method of consecration by which we become slaves of love to Jesus Christ through the hands of Mary. There is no surer way to reach the heart of the Son than to be guided by the hands of the Mother.

Taught by Fr. Michael Joseph Carlson, EP, the course consists of 33 daily classes. After the classes, we will have a solemn Consecration to the Virgin Mary. Each class covers a number of topics from the Treatise, with material that will greatly deepen our knowledge of the Blessed Virgin and help us grow in a more perfect devotion to Her. This course will lead us to love Our Lady more and more, moved by the blazing fire of the Holy Spirit, through interior and exterior practices taught by St. Louis de Montfort. The classes are enriched with illustrative examples from the lives of the Saints, experiences, and miracles, which highlight the importance of giving ourselves to this devotion, learning to do everything with Mary, through Mary, in Mary, and for Mary. Thus we will find the inner peace we seek so much!

Fr. Michael Joseph Carlson consecrated himself to Our Lady in his youth through the method of St. Louis Marie Grignion de Monfort. He has a deep devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary and has made his life a constant search for men and women who live the same dedication to Jesus through Mary's hands. As a good religious, always cheerful and good natured, Fr. Michael has been assigned by his superiors to carry out his apostolate in various places, beginning in the United States, his native land, and in several countries in Central America, South America, and Europe. His native language is English, but he speaks Spanish and Portuguese fluently. He frequently comments on the daily liturgy on the Heralds of the Gospel YouTube Channel.
