True Devotion to Mary

by
St. Louis Marie de Montfort



Read by James O'Keefe





   Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary     




"The more we honor the Blessed Virgin, the more we honor Jesus Christ, because we honor Mary only that we may more perfectly honor Jesus, since we go to her as the way by which we are to find the end we are seeking, which is Jesus.


Divine Wisdom, I love Thee unto folly.
I am Thy lover.
Thou alone in this world I seek,
Thou alone I desire.
I am a man gone mad with love,
Forever chasing Thee.

Tell me who Thou art,
I am half blind.
I can discern only
That Thou art a secret I must fathom.
Show Thyself fully to my soul
Which dies for love of Thee.

Where dost Thou live,
Wisdom Divine?
Must I cross continents or seas
To find Thee
Or fly across the skies?
I am ready to go wherever Thou art,
Not counting the costs, to possess Thee.


. . . . It was through the most holy Virgin Mary that Jesus came into he world, and it is also through her that He has to reign in the world.

. . . . The more the Holy Ghost finds Mary, His dear and inseparable spouse, in any soul, the more active and mighty He becomes in producing Jesus Christ in that soul, and that soul in Jesus Christ."

      St. Louis de Montfort
