True Devotion To Mary

St Louis De Montfort

Montfort Publ
True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin is one of the greatest and most celebrated books ever written about Our Lady. Praised by popes, mystics and theologians, this profound and powerful book presents Mary as the essential and infallible key to the heart of Jesus. Nowhere will you find a deeper and more life-changing book on that quintessentially Catholic doctrine: the role of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the life of the Christian and the life of the Church. Unpublished during the saint's life time, it has enjoyed the endorsement of the many outstanding popes the Church has been blessed with since its discovery in 1842. John Paul II, in particular, was its tireless champion, crediting True Devotion with a turning-point in his spiritual life, adopting his motto, Totus tuus, from St. Louis. The key to De Montfort's Marian spirituality is that he considered Our Lady to be the infallible and chosen gate to the heart of Christ: "To Jesus through Mary." It is Christ Himself Who is at the centre of True Devotion.

St. Louis De Montfort (1673 - 1716) studied in Paris, France, and was ordained in 1700. From his youth he was distinguished by a singular devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. In Rome, Pope Clement XI conferred on him the title and authority of Missionary Apostolic, which enabled him to continue his apostolate after returning to France. A member of the Third Order of Saint Dominic, Saint Louis was one of the greatest apostles of the Rosary in his day, and by means his miraculously inspiring book, The Secret of the Rosary, he is still so today; the most common manner of reciting the Rosary is the method that originated with Saint Louis s preaching. In 1715, he founded a missionary band known as the Company of Mary. He preached the devotion of Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary everywhere and to everyone, and wrote the books (such as True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin) that would make it accessible and easily understandable for the faithful. Worn out by intense preaching and prayer, he died in 1716 and was canonized by Pope Ven. Pius XII in 1947.
