It is used in reference to worship and means to be set aside or set apart for God. It is also a word which speaks to the very core of the Christian vocation. We are all called through our Baptism to be set aside for God. Rooted in the Jewish tradition, consecration has biblical roots. It is also entrenched within the Christian Tradition. The history of the Church is filled with the living witness of holy men and women who were set apart to continue the redemptive mission of the Lord Jesus Christ until He returns; men and women who lived in the heart of the Church for the sake of the world.

Madonna of Mercy with Kneeling Friars – Fra angelico – Throughout Christian history, the special role of Mary in the redemptive mission led to deeper reflection and a growing understanding that she is the exemplar of the faith. Redeemed by reason of the merits of her Son and united to Him by a close and indissoluble tie, she is endowed with the high office and dignity of being the Mother of the Son of God, by which account she is also the beloved daughter of the Father and the temple of the Holy Spirit.

Again, the Council fathers help us understand this consecration: At the same time, however, because she belongs to the offspring of Adam she is one with all those who are to be saved. She is “the mother of the members of Christ.

March 6, Pastor Tinashe Zinyemba LAST week we mentioned that a Godly relationship should be different and I felt the need to revisit something that we touched on last year — dating and courtship.

Individuals, family, and circumstances is unique, it also means that each courtship is unique. While those who choose courtship will hold to general guidelines for the relationship, their specific choices about when, where, and how to court may differ according to their needs and circumstances.
