No other book on Marian devotion comes close to this one. St. Louis could have been canonized on account of this book alone! (okay, maybe not technically, but the book really is that good). I highly recommend this book for anyone who questions devotion to Mary, especially those who wonder if it 'goes too far.' This book does a perfect job of explaining what is appropriate, what is not, and why. If you only read one book about our Blessed Mother, this one should be it. A+! Thank you St. Louis for sharing with us such divine inspiration!
This beautiful translation of True Devotion by Fr. Frederick Faber belongs in the library of every Catholic who hopes to attain to the blessedness of heaven. In this book, the great St. Louis-Marie Grignion de Monfort teaches us the way to Jesus through Mary. He shows us how to live perfect devotion to Jesus and Mary by giving everything we have to the Mother of God (i.e. consecrating ourselves to Jesus through Mary).
This book also has a supplement to guide anyone through the consecration to Mary, according to the saint's method. The supplement consists of prayers and spiritual practices that St. Louis de Montfort recommends to prepare for consecrating oneself entirely to Jesus, through Mary. The supplement also contains the Act of Consecration recommended by St. Louis de Montfort and the saint's method of praying the Rosary.
