About this Episode

St. Louis de Montfort in the 1700's proposed total consecration to Jesus through Mary. He wasn't the first. In fact, Catholic apologist Shane Kapler argues that Marian consecration has its roots in the bible, and not just the New Testament but also in the Old Testament. In this interview, you will learn why Catholics consecrate their lives to Mary and where you can find that in the bible. We also talk about vocabulary and whether or not we should say consecration versus entrustment. If you are considering Marian consecration, then this is the episode to convince you as to why you should.
