The book for all Christians who wish to delve deeper into the secret of Mary as revealed by Saint Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort
In True Devotion to Mary, Saint Louis provides meditations and excercises which can bring you a life lived more closely in conformance with the teachings of Jesus Christ, through the emulation of the perfect virtues and example of his mother, Mary.
In explaining the wonderful spiritual benefits which True Devotion to Jesus through Mary can bring about in a person s life, St. Louis makes it clear that this little-known devotion provides the hidden key to both sanctity and salvation in our times.
When a book continues to be a best-seller two hundred and fifty years after the author's death, we may safely say that it is a classic in its own field. Such is Saint Louis de Montfort's True Devotion to Mary. Translated into more than thirty languages, with editions running into the several hundreds, this book of high authority and unction, as Pope Benedict XV described it, has found its way into the hearts and lives of countless Christians since its providential discovery in 1842 including Pope John Paul II, who said that reading this book was to be a turning point in my life... it is an integral part of my interior life and of my spiritual theology.
Written in French (probably about the year 1712), the book was first translated into English in 1862, by the scholarly poet and spiritual writer, Father Frederick William Faber. Over a century has now elapsed since that first English version, and in recent years there has been a growing demand on the part of many followers of St. Louis de Montfort that a broader translation be made one that would take into account our contemporary modes of expression. Hence, this new adaptation by popular contemporary writer Eddie Doherty (once billed as America s Star Reporter. ) May it contribute to a better understanding of Vatican II's beautiful exposition of Mary as model of the Church and mother of us all.
Included in this new edition is a beautiful testimonial to the power of True Devotion the story of how Eddie and Catherine Doherty, the founders of the Madonna House Apostolate, first made their consecration to Jesus through Mary, and how the consecration changed their lives and the life of their apostolate.

In offering this new translation to the public, my prayer is the St. Louis de Montfort will inspire a new and receptive group of readers to become faithful servants of the Most Holy Virgin Mary by embracing this True Devotion. I pray with St. Louis that a great army of loyal soldiers may be raised up to do battle against evil under the direction and guidance of the Immaculate Queen of Heaven. Then and only then will Jesus reign triumphant in the hearts of His faithful ones.
Glory to Jesus in Mary!
