From The Catholic Sun:
The Blessed Mother has millennia of experience as protector.
By design, only 50 of those years were formally in the Diocese of Phoenix, which marks its golden jubilee on Dec. 2. Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted sees this as a perfect time to reinforce the need for families to pray together by consecrating their families and themselves to Jesus Christ through the Blessed Virgin Mary. It’s a natural follow up in response to what St. Paul asks of the Philippians — make my joy complete — and what the bishop expounded upon in his apostolic exhortation, “Complete My Joy.” Its latter parts recall the Blessed Mother as “Evangelist Extraordinaire” and declares that “her intercession for our families is key to winning the spiritual battle again in our time.”
