The purpose of the Acies is to renew and deepen one's Consecration to Mary at least once a year. That consecration is at the heart of the Legion's vocation. The project of the true devotion to Mary is never done once and for all but we must keep going back to the basic principles and try to live them better throughout our lives. What does it mean? It means belonging totally to Mary. Absolutely nothing must be held back. I am all yours: every thing I am or possess, spiritual and material goods, past, present and to come. I will to give every moment of my life to Mary. According to St. Louis Marie de Montfort: ‘the essence of the devotion consists in giving ourselves up entirely to the Most Holy Virgin in the quality of slave in order to belong wholly to Jesus Christ; and in the next place to do all our actions with Mary, in Mary, by Mary, for Mary in order to do them more perfectly with Jesus, in Jesus, by Jesus, and for the Jesus our last end.’ The shorthand of all the work of De Montfort and our Founder is to Jesus through Mary.
