Being a former protestant I was quite uncomfortable with this at first. But then a holy reminder from a priest during a lesson gave me the necessary boost of confidence though I didn't know it at the time. Consolation came while meditating on the Joyful mysteries of the Rosary. In each mystery I contemplated the fact that Mary's will is united with God's. She "said yes" to God will at every pass. There is nothing to fear in holy slavery in all things to Jesus through Mary. Over the past month I have been making the preparation and yesterday I made the consecration and was enrolled in the Miraculous Medal.
