Step 3 - Entrustment

What is an Entrustment to the Immaculate Heart of Mary?

Entrustment means to ‘trust’, or commit our lives to our Blessed Mother.

Pastors, Teachers and Parents, let us spiritually unite and work to Entrust millions of our precious children to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The most tender and loving of all mothers, whose only desire is to help children to draw closer to her Son Jesus, and one day to Heaven.

Help the children and youth to understand that Entrustment the Immaculate Heart of Mary means that you entrust your life to Her in complete confidence in her loving care.


Please review Step 4

On May 13th – 1917, Our Blessed Mother appeared to the three shepherd children. Here is a little video clip of the classic trailer of 1952. It sounds like today!

FATIMA AND ENTRUSTMENT to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

The following first two apparitions are explained here to serve as a link between Entrustment to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and Fatima.

First Apparition of Our Blessed Mother May 13th – 1917

“Do not be afraid, I will not harm you, come closer won’t you.” The children felt peaceful in her presence. Lucia asked her, “where is your excellency from.” Our Lady responded, “I am from Heaven.” She asked the children, “are you willing to offer to God all of the sufferings He wishes to send to you for the conversion of sinners?” They said, “yes we will.”

Teachers/Parents, please refer to this link regarding ‘sufferings and sacrifices’. This link will help you to explain to the children what Our Lady was asking.

Second Apparition – Vision of Hell June 13, 1917

Immediately after showing the children the vision of hell she said. “You have seen hell, where poor sinners go because there is no one to pray and to make sacrifices for them.” To save them, Jesus desires to establish devotion to my Immaculate Heart in the world, it is by this means He wishes to save it.

As Our Lady went on to explain to the Little Shepherds – as she also conveys to us
“My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God. I promise salvation to those who embrace it, and these souls will be loved by God like flowers placed by Me to adorn His throne.”

In closing:

Our children’s Entrustment to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart is giving her their YES!

As they follow the way of the Little Shepherds:

  • It is established that Entrustment/Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is the will of our Heavenly Father.

    Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!
