I decided not to pay attention to what had just happened to me. I tried hard to forget. But these words, "Consecrate your parish to the Holy and Immaculate Heart of Mary," kept coming back to my mind. So as to deliver myself from this tiresome thought, I gave in, saying to myself, "An act of devotion to the Blessed Virgin can do no harm." In fact, I consented not freely, but out of sheer exhaustion. I went home and in order to forget these thoughts, I started doing paper work on the statutes of our association. Hardly had I placed my hand on the quill that the subject became clear in my mind, and the statutes were written in no time.
