Probably the finest book ever written about the Rosary; appeals to all ages. Shows the great spiritual power of the Rosary, which is appreciated by few. Tells why the Rosary is the most important private prayer. Canon William says of De Montfort's book, "It goes far beyond mere research. We might say that it contains everything that can be said about the Rosary–its content and form, its real worth, about the instruction necessary for its appreciation and use." Over 5,300,000 sold! 
St. Louis de Montfort's Biography:
St. Louis de Montfort

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.

Inspires Devotion to the Rosary

I haven't read anything else by Monfort as of this review, but I had heard prior to picking up this book that the author is a very enthusiastic proponent of Marian devotion. I was pleased to see that Montfort's enthusiasm is rich with practical advice on how to say the Rosary. Not only does he assuage your doubts, he also challenges you to strive to say the Rosary better and seems to answer any excuse you might be able to offer for negligence in this devotion. You will want to say the Rosary better after reading this.

An Excellent Book on the Rosary!

Written by one of the greatest Marian saints of all time, this book is an invaluable resource if you want to increase your devotion to the Rosary. It was recommended to me multiple times by a number of different priests. It contains exhortations as to why we should pray the rosary, how we should increase our devotion during the rosary, and even some methods of prayer (particular virtues to ask for and some additional intercessory prayers) that have enriched my time with this ancient devotion.


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.

Very Helpful in My Prayer Life

Great information on why we should pray the Rosary. I am especially enjoying the different methods of praying all 15 decades everyday.

Treasure of a book

Arrived as expected. Excellent book a treasure.
