Consecration to Mary.

Vatican City--In a March 24, 2004, general audience, the Pope renewed the 1984 Act of Consecration of humanity to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

"So much blood continues to be spilt in many regions of the world," the Pope said. "The need is still urgent for people to open their hearts to a courageous effort of reciprocal understanding. The hope for justice and peace is ever greater in every part of the earth. "How can we respond to this thirst for hope and love other than by taking recourse to Christ through Mary?" he asked.
