It is very easy to read but very thought provoking.
Virginia K. Toby
IF you are seeking to understand the love for Jesus through His Mother, Mary and truly want a closer relationship with Our God and Savior, you must read this book!

I picked up a free copy at our church, and started reading it as a book, not a retreat (ie, not one page a day).

33 Days to Morning Glory is the best hands-on book for Marian Consecration available today! Michael Gaitley presents in a way that is practical, insightful and efficient. It is excellent for anyone who does not have a lot of time, yet still desires to grow spiritually. In a mere 2-3 pages a day, the spiritual firepower of Blessed Mother Teresa, Blessed John Paul II, St. Maximilian Kolbe, and the remarkable St. Louis de Montfort is unveiled in a manner that is powerful, personal and straightforward for adults and teens alike. Whatever the age of the reader, this retreat is a great place to grow closer to Jesus through his devoted mother Mary. Mary's last words in the Gospel at the wedding feast of Cana seem fitting:

1 On the third day there was a wedding in Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there.
2 Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the wedding.
3 When the wine ran short, the mother of Jesus said to him, "They have no wine."
4 [And] Jesus said to her, "Woman, how does your concern affect me? My hour has not yet come."
5 His mother said to the servers, "Do whatever he tells you."

-John 2:1-5

Mary desires lead us to Jesus today, just as she wished to lead us to her son almost two thousand years ago. At Cana, she was concerned with helping out the wedding couple by interceding with Jesus. Jesus granted his mother's request, even though his 'hour' had not come. Mary is just as concerned with interceding for each of us with her son today. Imagine the great things Jesus could to do in our lives if we took Mary's advice, as the servers did, and did whatever he told us.

Format: Paperback
In preparing for Total Consecration according to Saint Louis Marie de Montfort, I found this book to be helpful for meditation, but incomplete without the prayers and meditations recommended by St. Louis Marie de Montfort. To be fair to the author, he states in the introduction to his book that he is offering his meditations as an alternative because "I personally find more spiritual fruit not in reciting long prayers but in pondering in my heart inspiring teachings on Marian consecration." That is clearly stated and fair enough. I did find that I wanted and needed the prayers too, so I used this book in conjunction with the standard prayers and meditations in Monfort Publications book "Preparation for Total Consecration according to Saint Louis Marie de Montfort."

after several years of doing deMonforte's preperation to conscecration toJesus through Mary I find 33 Day's to Morning Glory refreshing. This new and informative outline sweeps your mind
and pours your heart into Mary's arms. Well done Father Michael.

Fr. Gaitley shows in this book how to consecrate yourself to Mary in a way that is easy to understand and follow. Being a former Protestant I find the Marian doctrines difficult to understand at times-this book helped me understand the whole concept of Mary's role in salvation. I would highly recommend it.

This book is beautifully written, simple yet profound and gives the reader practical and understandable access to somewhat lofty and profound truths about this Consecration to Jesus through Mary. It will help clear up misconceptions and help the reader move forward in this act of love to Jesus. I highly recommend this book.

There is no doubt that the content of this book is going to lead people to Jesus through Mary. For that, I am extremely enthused and highly encouraged that a good priest like Fr. Gaitley has authored it. Personally, I think it would be just fantastic if every soul on earth was consecrated to Mary in order to better love and serve Jesus. However, there are a few things I thought about while reading this book that I would like to share.

1) I really don't understand why St. Faustina Kowalska was not in the book. I understand why St. Louis de Montfort, St. Maximilian Kolbe, and Bl. John Paul II are there. Yet, before anyone accuses me of not liking Bl. Teresa of Calcutta, I would like to say that I love her dearly and pray to her often; she is, indeed, an incredible model of sanctity. However, it seems to me that St. Faustina would have fit better for the intention behind this book. She fits better with St. Maximilian Kolbe and Bl. John Paul II, too. Plus, St. Faustina's Diary has an incredible amount of material on the Blessed Virgin Mary, even consecration formulas and the lived out (and written out) example of giving oneself entirely to Mary. Fr. Gaitley belongs to the religious community that spreads the message of Divine Mercy, and it just seems it would have made more sense to have St. Faustina rather than Bl. Teresea of Calcutta as the fourth Marian person in this book because it could have offered to the reader parts of the Divine Mercy devotion that would have made this book even more up-to-date. Anyway, those are my thoughts on that.

2) While I understand the intention behind the book is to provide the reader with an "updated" and "less rigorous" version of St.
