♦The "True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary"♦

St. Louis de Montfort's Way: Total Consecration


Now I’m reading, True Devotion to Our Lady.  It is different now, then when I read it as a novice. Don’t say, “Oh, I read that book before.” ...


We must bring Mary more and more in our life; you are eager to love Jesus—pray “Mary be a Mother to me;” “Mary make my heart like yours—pure and humble”, again and again. ... A gentleman said to me in Holland, “Mother Teresa, I love you but I do not love Our Lady.” I said to him, “No Mary, no Jesus.” Now when I met him again, he said, “Yes, I love you and I love Mary. You brought Mary in my life.

(Mother Teresa of Calcutta)
