Item description for The True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin by St. Louis De Montfort...
Overview 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 Unpublished during the saint's life time, it has enjoyed the endorsement of the many outstanding popes the Church has been blessed with since its discovery in 1842.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.

More About St. Louis De Montfort
The author of The Secret of the Rosary and the originator of total consecration to Mary, St. Louis-Marie Grignion De Montfort (1673-1716) remains one of the greatest apostles of Marian devotion the world has ever known. As a young priest, De Montfort dedicated himself to preaching to the people. This highly gifted orator's language was simple but full of divine love, much as you will find in True Devotion to Mary. De Montfort's whole life was marked by constant prayer, love for the poor and holy joy in humiliations and persecutions. De Montfort was canonized by Pius XII in 1947.

Ture Devotion Jan 17, 2009
This is an excellant adn very deep book. Sometimes it takes reading the book several times to understand some of its meanings.
a way of life Jan 7, 2001
A powerful book that will change your life. Should be a must for all Catholics and a great way to understand man's relationship with Christ through our Blessed Lady. Reading in a group with a Cenacle Leader is the best way to explore St. de Monforts' Method of True Devotion to our Lord Jesus Christ. The entire book should be read before making any judgement on the text-you'll want to reread it every time you finish!
