Product Information

Author: Veronique Pinardon and Jean Bulteau

A childlike devotion to the Mother of God marked Louis's life from the start. At confirmation he took the name Mary. Studying with the Jesuits at Rennes, and then at the Sorbonne and Saint-Sulpice, Louis became familiar with the French school of spirituality and, as he himself declared, read nearly all of the books dealing with devotion to Our Lady.

In the brief 16 years of his priesthood, Saint Louis de Montfort fulfilled a career of founder, missionary, and prolific writer. Two years after ordination he organized the nursing and teaching congregation of the Daughters of Wisdom and in 1705 founded his missionary congregation of men, the Missionaries of the Company of Mary (Montfort Fathers). Throughout his life, Louis stressed that a tender devotion to Mary is the greatest secret of achieving union with Christ. It is Mary, Louis emphasized, who intercedes on our behalf when we pray, for just as Jesus passed through Mary in his Incarnation, all graces and God's gifts pass through her hands.
