Customer Comments:
The CD was very informative. Fr. Gaitley was very interesting, and I loved the presentation. It made me reflect about my love for Mary and for our beloved Pope John Paul. This is a CD that I will share.
Barbara – Dearborn Heights, MI

The world needs more dedicated priests like Fr. Michael Gaitley!
Roland – Thibodaux, LA

Fr. Gaitley’s presentation is easy to listen to.
John – Bristol, VA

I had no idea the Divine Mercy has been around for so long, and I had no idea Pope John Paul was so involved with the Divine Mercy. Also, learning some of the history of Pope John Paul was very interesting and enlightening.
Ron – Cottonport, LA

Fr. Gaitley presents the historical background of Poland’s unique role in preserving freedom in Europe and Blessed John Paul II’s consecration to the Blessed Virgin. Fr. Gaitley gives steps for anyone who wishes to consecrate his/her life to the BVM. He is an excellent, captivating teacher and presenter.
David – Columbia, SC

The talk was very enjoyable. It was presented in a light format that was very easy to listen to while driving. The information presented was valuable and useful. It inspired me to pursue Marian devotion and consecration. I am more than pleased with this work!!!
Steven – MI

I’ve heard most of the stories before but had never heard them all tied together in this way. My next move will be to read the books recommended by Fr. Michael.
James – Marion, KS

That is The First Greatest Story I have ever heard. I am Polish/American. It is hard to believe how much one can learn from such a short talk. I am also consecrated to the Heart of Jesus through Mary. That tells it all. God Bless you, Fr. Mike.
Lidia – Baltimore, MD

The personalization, the humor, the connections of the dates and years to God’s revelations, and the good ideas on deepening faith. This CD has moved me to do the Consecration to Mary, and to pass this CD along to a young man considering a vocation to the priesthood.
Madeleine – Carlsbad, NM

For a weary Catholic trying to come home, this was an amazing educational tool! I had little familiarity with Marian Consecration and didn’t recall much about Pope John Paul II’s life and contributions. Wow, what a story! Fr. Gaitley is a storyteller that you want to keep listening to. His voice is friendly, and he leaves you wanting more when the CD ends.
Liz – North Augusta, SC

I found it to be very interesting and informative, especially since I am also doing the Marian Consecration for Men Only [33 Days to Morning Glory].
Robert – Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia

Fr. Gaitley was enthusiastic about Marian Consecration and tying that thread with recent world history and with the desire to encourage one to strive to become a saint even in today’s time and culture.
Barbara – Lititz, PA

Informative about Marian Consecration and the historical relevance of Poland.
Kevin – Coleman, MI

This was a wonderful explanation of the Divine Mercy miracle and what took place for many years where the Divine Mercy was in action and preparing the world for one of the most powerful connections with Jesus, God, and Mary. Before listening to this CD, I had a great devotion for the Divine Mercy. Now I want to learn even more about it, and my devotion has increased tremendously. The second time I listened to this CD, my 12-year-old daughter was with me, and even she was amazed by it. It will be one of those CDs I keep listening to all the time, and every time I’ll hear a new message. God bless, Fr. Michael!
Liz – Milton, ON

I had just finished reading Michael Gaitley’s first 2 books and doing his Consecration to Mary so I was eager to hear this recording. It answered some questions I had about why I didn’t feel as close to Mary as I had while doing the consecration. It filled out and expanded what I knew about Poland and Blessed JP2. It pointed me to the Encyclical on Mercy which I will read. But mostly it moved me in a spiritual way. As I listened to it while walking my dogs, I found myself laughing and also crying as the beauty of this gift from God became ever more present to me. Bless Fr. Gaitley.
Jini – Silver Spring, MD

I discovered new things about our Catholic Faith I did not know. Also, the presentation was quite good. I’ve passed this one around.
Guy – Macomb, MI

I loved how it gave me a more personal idea of how love for others can manifest and be used for the glory of God by religious.
Tina -MI

I loved learning this year about Divine Mercy and this talk definitely provided some deeper information on Divine Mercy. I also enjoyed the way Fr. Michael intertwines the two hearts and divine mercy together, this CD is awesome!
Colleen – Pennsburg, PA

My favorite part of the talk was when Fr. Michael pointed our that Mary, Jesus’ mother, was at the core of Divine Mercy.
Tessa – Charleston, SC

Fr. Michael Gaitley is great. I love how he tied in Poland, JPII, St. Faustina and Fatima and how Our Lady warns her children to pray, confess, and make penance for the reparation of sinners.
John – Houston, TX

Fr. Gaitley’s talk is so interesting and enthusiastic. I’ve listened to this CD numerous times and never get tired of his zeal about consecrating our lives to Mary.
Ginny – PA, PA

It was a great talk, one of the best.

This is one of my favorites of the Lighthouse Catholic Media…

Loved it. Bought ten and gave them to friends.

Loved this CD. It is life changing!

There is so much information that I have had to listen to it several times and I enjoy it every time I do. I enjoy hearing the excitement and passion in Father Mike’s voice! Truly a cd I will treasure!
Lynnette – Leonard, TX
