"Our Blessed Lady, in her immense love for us, is eager to receive into her virginal hands the gift of our actions, imparting to them a marvelous beauty and splendor,
and presenting them herself to Jesus most willingly.
More glory is given to our Lord in this way
than when we make our offering with our own guilty hands."
- St. Louis Marie de Montfort: True Devotion #224
As daughters of our Blessed Mother, our life is imbued with a profound Marian spirit. We strive every day to live more fully our consecration “to Jesus through Mary” according to the method of St. Louis de Montfort.
Everything our Blessed Mother did or spoke was for the glory of God. We see this echoed in her Magnifcat, where her soul sings the praises of the Lord. She was God's perfect handmaid. By inviting our Blessed Mother to accompany us throughout the day – to act through us, to pray, rejoice, suffer and serve through us - we are asking that she, who knows how to give perfect praise to God, may magnify God in us.
This complete consecration to Our Lady permeated St. Louis Marie de Montfort's entire life. He understood deeply how necessary it was for a soul to rely upon our Heavenly Mother, for through her, the soul would be led directly to Jesus
We rejoice with heaven today, thanking our Lord for the gift of this dear saint, who shared with the world his tender love for the Blessed Mother and his profound understanding of how necessary she is to our salvation. May St. Louis Marie de Montfort intercede for us and grant us the grace to have greater recourse to Our Lady so that we may be more closely united to Jesus.
St. Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort, pray for us!
"If Mary, the Tree of Life, is well cultivated in our soul by fidelity to this devotion, she will in due time bring forth her fruit which is none other than Jesus. "
