Totus Tuus!

Here is what Natalie is doing this week!!!

 

From Wikipedia: 

 

Totus Tuus was Pope John Paul II's apostolic motto. It is a Latin phrase meaning "totally yours" and expressed his personal Consecration to Mary based on the spiritual approach of Saint Louis de Montfort and the Mariology in his works.

 

According to his Apostolic Letter Rosarium Virginis Mariae he borrowed the motto from the Marian consecrating prayer found in the book True Devotion to Mary by Saint Louis de Montfort. [3] The complete text of the prayer in Latin is:

"Totus tuus ego sum, et omnia mea tua sunt. Accipio te in mea omnia. Praebe mihi cor tuum, Maria." ("I belong entirely to you, and all that I have is yours. I take you for my all. O Mary, give me your heart")

 

Totus Tuus is a Catholic youth program dedicated to sharing the Gospel and promoting the Catholic faith through catechesis, evangelization, Christian witness, and Eucharistic worship. 

 

Totus Tuus summer camp demonstrates that one can be a faithful Catholic and still have fun.  We are lucky enough to have 4 college students, including seminarians, from our diocese who will share their energy, enthusiasm, and love for Jesus Christ with our daughter (and other youth from our parish) this week!

In other news, Natalie will be in the musical, OLIVER!, this summer.
