If we give everything we have and are, what is left? Too often we either ignore the idea of the Law of Consecration or we use it to discount our own needs, giving and giving until we are completely burned out. This episode emphasizes sustainable, transformative consecration. I believe that God wants us to care for ourselves, those close to us, our Church and communities in a way that allows us to gain more and become more as we serve.
