“Totus Tuus” means “Totally Yours.”
Latin for “Totally Yours,” Totus Tuus was St. Pope John Paul II's Apostolic Motto. It is a phrase taken from St. Louis de Montfort’s book True Devotion to Mary and signifies our desire to give ourselves entirely to Jesus Christ through Mary. It also expresses our effort to give our all to every young person we encounter. Through the missionary teams’ example of joy and service, the youth see that these men and women are on fire with the Catholic faith, and they long to live from the same fire in their own lives.
