True devotion to Mary is by far my number one book! haven't read anything more inspirational and moving as this (apart from the catholic bible).
I would truly recommend true devotion to anybody, epically to people who have an issue with praying to Mary.
After buying two different versions of St Louis De Montfort I've finally found the one which is simply laid out. You have the main text and information in the front part of the book and in the second part you have the consecration perfectly laid out day by day for you.
Everyone should read this and try to complete the consecration.
A wonderful book to say the least;Since the reformation of Christs holy church in England and the destruction of what was a most beautiful legacy brought to this country by Saints. Holy Mary is the mother of God and this book tell's us why. I feel so strongly about how the Queen of Heaven has been treated by those who say that being Catholic is being an idolater. All Church of ENGLAND Churches need to read this book. Thank you.
Not everyone will appreciate this dissertation on Mary and the catholic faith, but if you are a believer and interested in developing your understanding then it is well worth the effort. I say effort as the writing style is of course dated which leaves it a little hard to digest. i personally find it difficult to read this style of discourse but that takes nothing away from the content and the authors intent. it is a period piece and he was after all canonized. That should put it in context, it is full of revelation for those of us who want to know more about our faith and how to practice it.
St Monfort explains how important Marian devotion is if one wishes to get close to her Son. Theologically sound and approved by the Church, the book expounds on the topic by using both Scripture and Tradition, showing us that Mary is the easiest and surest way for us to draw closer to Jesus. I thoroughly reccommend the Consecration to all Catholics who are particularly devoted to Mary.
