Mary has produced, together with the Holy Ghost, the greatest thing which has been or ever will
be—a God-Man; and she will consequently produce the greatest saints that there will be in the
end of time.”
—St. Louis de Montfort
In the greatest book of Marian spirituality ever written, St. Louis De Montfort teaches the easiest,
most secure, and most perfect way to sainthood. There is no better way to become holy quickly, to please God, and to guarantee your eternal salvation than being truly devoted to Mary, the Mother of God.

In a simple but profound way, St. Louis reveals all the spiritual benefits of true devotion to Mary.

rhetoric. His life was characterized by prayer, love of the poor, and his joy in his constant
persecution. He was canonized by Pius XII in 1947, and his legacy as the greatest advocate of
devotion to Mary is immobilized in True Devotion to Mary.

—St. Louis De Montfort
