  NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Consecration
For example, a church building or an altar may be consecrated to the purpose of religious worship, or a chalice may be consecrated to the purpose of containing the eucharistic elements (bread or wine).
In the west, the consecration is understood to be the Words of Institution by which a priest is said to act "in the person of Christ" (in persona Christi) as "another Christ" (alter Christus).
Consecration, in general, is an act by which a thing is separated from a common and profane to a sacred use, or by which a person or thing is dedicated to the service and worship of God by prayers, rites, and ceremonies.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Consecration
Hence the Roman Pontifical treats of the consecration of a bishop and of the blessing of an abbot, of the blessing of a corner-stone and the consecration of a church or altar.
The consecrator is vested in full pontificals of the colour of the Mass of the day; the assistant bishops, in amice, stole, and cope of the same colour, and a white linen or damask mitre; the bishop-elect in amice, alb, cincture, white stole crossed on the breast, and cope and biretta.
The consecrator then blesses the mitre and places it on the head of the bishop, referring to its mystical signification and a helmet of protection and salvation, that the wearer of it may seem terrible to the opponents of truth and be their sturdy adversary.

 Consecration of a Virgin - Catholic Youth Networking   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
The Consecration of a Virgin is one of the oldest sacramentals in the Church, and one of the fruits of Vatican II was the restoration of this profound blessing on virgins living in the world.
The consecrated virgin shares intimately in the nature and mission of the Church--she is a living image of the Church's love for her Spouse while sharing in His redemptive mission.
She must be admitted to this Consecration by her local Bishop; it is he who determines the conditions under which the candidate is to undertake a life of perpetual virginity lived in the world.

The consecration of a bishop is comprised of three separate rites: the rite of election, of confession and the actual consecration.
Election: Before the Vigil on the eve of the consecration, the hierarchs who are to perform the rite take their places at a table in the middle of the church.
Consecration: After the Small Entrance (which represents the coming to earth of the Lord incarnate) and the singing of the Trisagion, the senior priest and protodeacon lead the bishop-elect through the south door onto the ambo to the Royal Doors where he is received by two hierarchs.

 Perfect Consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary
Consecration to Mary is primarily an internal dedication of the soul based on true, interior devotion.
Total Consecration, which itself is the perfection of devotion to Mary, consists in offering everything you have, body and soul, interiorly and exteriorly, spiritual and temporal to Mary and Her service, as a slave to his Queen.
Unlimited consecration consists in making this same offering in an unlimited manner, that is, by explicitly excluding any limit to which one would offer himself and his life to Her, as a piece of property to Her who is proprietress.

This consecration was made by John Paul II on March 24, 1984, in union with the bishops of the world, and considered by Lucia as both sufficient and efficacious.
This is what we call his subjective consecration in response to the objective consecration of his being which occurred in his humanity at the moment of the Incarnation.
Consecrations to Mary where one pledges to perform all actions "through Mary, in Mary, and for Mary" are in fact a pledge to perform them more perfectly through Jesus Christ, with him, in, and for him.

 U.S. Virgins Consecrated in 2003
My journey to this Consecration as been a very long one, but I really believe this is what I was originally called to, long, ago, when I was about eight years old.
Magalis Aguilera, consecrated virgin of that same Archdiocese, and Judith Stegman, consecrated virgin of the Diocese of Lansing (Michigan), joyfully accompanied her to the altar.
Valerie Means, consecrated virgin of the Archdiocese of Baltimore, and Susan Ahern, consecrated virgin of the Diocese of Dallas, made their way at great personal sacrifice to be with MaryAnn and to accompany her to the altar.

 Pope John Paul II and the Collegial Consecration of 1984
Thus this consecration had not fulfilled the conditions of collegiality asked for by Mary at Fatima, that is that the Pope in union with the bishops of the world should consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart.
Again it is clear that at present the "whole Church" is far from acknowledging Mary's role and seeing the 1984 act of consecration as a triumph of her Immaculate Heart, and this too is probably a factor in limiting the effectiveness of the consecration.
Similarly Paul VI could have made the collegial consecration during the Second Vatican Council, when he was in the presence of the world's bishops, but he too chose not to or felt unable to take this step.

 The Consecration and Transubtantiation
The consecration refers to the words of our Lord when He instituted the Blessed Sacrament the night before He died.
I have also noticed that some priests are not genuflecting after they speak the words of consecration over the bread and, then, over the wine.
When priests choose to alter the words and actions of the mass, particularly at the consecration, they distort the meaning of the mass in the eyes of the faithful.

 Gregorian Bivolaru - On Consecration
Through consecration, the two lovers can attain really blissful states, but the one who forgets to consecrate does not centre himself in God, and does not help you do that (in case you have intended to).
This state confirms that this consecration is successful, and then we know that the action we are going to perform, is inspired by God, is sustained by Him, belongs entirely to Him, we being only an instrument through which GodÂ’s power is manifesting.
There were even some persons who, after having consecrated for the first time, told me that although their continence was quite weak, after they consecrated the fruits of their amorous fusion to God or to a certain Cosmic Power, they noticed that their control improved very much.

 SUMMA THEOLOGICA: Is the eucharistic consecration instantaneous?
Secondly, because if the substantial form of the bread were to remain, it would remain either in matter, or separated from matter.
Therefore the form of the bread is changed into the form of Christ's body, according as the latter gives corporeal being, but not according as it bestows animated being.
Some of the operations of bread follow it by reason of the accidents, such as to affect the senses, and such operations are found in the species of the bread after the consecration on account of the accidents which remain.

 CONSECRATION
There are degrees of consecration, and even entire consecration is progressive--for new interests, cares, burdens, capacities and opportunities arise and await disposal as Christ is revealed in new relations, making new demands, offering new privileges.
Consecration is not absolutely perfect (that is complete), until the fulness of our Lord is perceived and received, and the fulness of life is devoted to Him.
The consecration must be as broad as one's perceptions covering the fulness of Christ and the fulness of man.

Embrace, with the love of the Mother and Handmaid, this human world of ours, which we entrust and consecrate to you, for we are full of disquiet for the earthly and eternal destiny of individuals and peoples.

 CONSECRATION TO THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY
However, that this transformation — through Mary’s help — be accomplished in a notable degree, there must be an awareness of her role in our sanctification, a confidence in her maternal concern and in her power under God, a surrender of oneself into her hands, and a fervent, frequent and confident seeking of her aid.
If consecration to Mary “tends essentially to union with Jesus, under the guidance of Mary,” as Pope Pius XII pointed out, we must remember that any gradual transformation into Christ requires a gradual loving acceptance of a greater share in His redeeming Cross.
Consecration to Mary, then, requires a childlike simplicity and confidence, letting her lead one by the hand, trusting — regardless of what lies ahead — that she knows better than we what contributes most to God’s glory, our sanctification and the salvation of souls.

For in the person consecrating, there is required firmness, constancy, and holiness of life; and that the consecrator himself shall, with a firm and undubitable faith, believe the virtue, Power, and effect thereof.

Surpluses: Under the law, if the family had more than they really needed, any and all surpluses produced from the stewardship were to be turned over to the bishop for the bishop’s storehouse so that resources would be available when needed for those whose production did not meet their needs.
Although living the law of consecration is not now required, we do not have to wait until it is required to learn to live the law.
