In 33 Days to Morning Glory, Fr. Gaitley talks about Mother Theresa's perspective on consecration. Mother called it a Covenant and below is her covenant agreement as well as a list of her duties as a consecrated daughter to our lady and our lady's duties as our mother who we have consecrated ourselves to. I keep the lists in my spiritual journal to make sure I am following up on my end of the bargain as well as to remind myself what our lady does for me and try to recognize our lady's direct work in my life. It is easy to forget unless I refer to it once in a while. COVENANT Moved by an ardent desire to live in the closest union with you [Mary] possible in this life, so as to more surely and fully arrive at union with your Son; I hereby pledge to live the spirit and terms of the following Covenant of Consecration as faithfully and generously as I am able. MARY'S DUTIES 1. To give of her spirit and heart. 2. To possess, protect, and transform me. 3. To inspire, guide, and enlighten me. 4. To share her experience of prayer and praise. 5. Responsibility for my sanctification. 6. Responsibility for all that befalls me. 7. To share with me her virtues. 8. To provide for my spiritual and material needs. 9. Union with her heart. 10. To purify me and my actions. 11. Right to dispose of me, of my prayers and intercessions and graces. 12. Total freedom in and around me, as she pleases in all things. MY DUTIES 1. Total gift of all I have and am. 2. Total dependence on her. 3. Responsiveness to her spirit. 4. Faithfulness to prayer. 5. Trust in her intercession. 6. Accept all as coming from her. 7.

Right to avail myself of her and her energies for the sake of the kingdom. 12. Right to enter into her heart, to share her interior life.
