Consecration and the Holy Habit: Part 2

Dear Friends in Christ,

Each particular piece of the Holy Habit is significant and is donned with a prayer. 

Dress:  Wedding gown:  I rejoice heartily in the Lord, In my God is the joy of my soul; For he has clothed me with a robe of salvation, And wrapped me in a mantel of justice, Like a bride bedecked with her jewels  ( Isaiah 61:10) 

Collar: Surrender to God.  Lord, lead me along the path that pleases you… Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me…  (Mt 11:28-30 )

Belt: Chastity, fortitude, and obedience.  Do not be afraid of them; the LORD your God himself will fight for you.” (Deut. 3:22) and Eph 6: 10-18:  “…the belt of truth…”

Scapular: Protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary:  Mother Mary, cover me with the mantel of your love and protection. Transform me into the likeness of your Son, Who is love and mercy itself.

Crucifix: Death to ourselves.  Kiss the floor while saying:  For you Lord, save souls, Jesus, I trust in You.

Veil: We belong only to the Lord:  Jesus, You are my only love.

Rosary: Consecration to Jesus through Mary: O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to Thee.

Reflection: How do

I clothe myself in Christ each day? Does what I wear witness to the sacredness of my body and reverence for Almighty God, especially in Church?  What prayer can I offer as I dress each day?
