True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin by St. Louis Marie Grignion De Montfort (1673 -1716) is considered to be the greatest single book on the Blessed Virgin Mary ever written. Seemingly divinely inspired, it is the classic statement on the spiritual way to Jesus Christ through the Blessed Virgin Mary. Beloved by countless souls, this book sums up the entire Christian life, showing a way of holiness that is short, easy, secure and perfect – a way of life chosen by Our Lord Himself, as explained here by the "Apostle of Mary."
Yet this holy way to Jesus through Mary remains unknown to most Catholics – even to many of the wisest and most spiritual among them. This is undoubtedly due in large part to the work of Satan, who cannot endure that Mary should be so successful in bringing souls to her Divine Son. In fact, St. Louis De Montfort predicted that the devil would try to bury True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin; and indeed, his precious manuscript lay hidden all during the 1700's, and was finally brought to light only in the year 1842, when it was found in a chest of old books. But even today, most Catholics still do not realize that God Himself has chosen Mary as the perfect means for Christians to become entirely devoted to His service.
In this beautiful and sublimely inspiring book, St. Louis De Montfort explains the wonderful spiritual effects which True Devotion to Mary brings about in a person's life, leaving the reader with no doubt that this devotion provides the key both to sanctity and to salvation. In fact, no Catholic should pass beyond the age of 20 without having read True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin. For there is no better way to advance quickly in holiness, no better way to please God, and no better way to guarantee one's eternal salvation than True Devotion to Mary.
