Saint Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort (31 January 1673 - 28 April 1716) was a French Roman Catholic priest and Confessor. He was known in his time as a preacher and was made a missionary apostolic by Pope Clement XI. As well as preaching, Montfort found time to write a number of books which went on to become classic Catholic titles and influenced several popes. Montfort is known for his particular devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary and the practice of praying the Rosary. Montfort is considered as one of the early writers in the field of Mariology. His most notable works regarding Marian devotions are contained in The Secret of Mary and the True Devotion to Mary. The Roman Catholic Church, under the pontificate of Pope Pius XII canonized Montfort on July 20, 1947.
Learn to pray the rosary from a "master" of the rosary. Enjoyed some exegesis on basic prayers. I wish this book were preached more often on Marian feast days.
Great information on why we should pray the Rosary. I am especially enjoying the different methods of praying all 15 decades everyday.
Arrived as expected. Excellent book a treasure.
