Captivating biographie of an original and powerful figure: Saint Louis Mary de Montfort, Apostle of the Cross and Doctor of the Mediation of Mary


Saint Louis Mary de Montfort (1673-1716)

Apostle and Doctor of the Mediation of Mary, Apostle of the Eternal Wisdom, Apostle of the Cross

by Mother Michelle, o.d.m.

In this brief and captivating biography, discover an original and powerful figure, a man of genius animated by an outstanding supernatural spirit and a humility that is difficult to match.  He was not only an apostle totally imbued with the doctrine of the Gospel and a tireless missionary at the service of souls, but also a prophet and a precursor of the Apostles of the Latter Times.  His book, “The Love of Eternal Wisdom” is, in a way, the work that best summarizes Montfort’s profound spirit.  The goal of our life on earth is to discover Jesus, Eternal Wisdom, who has manifested Himself to man, and to unite ourselves to Him. True devotion to Mary is, according to Montfort’s expression, “the most marvelous of all the secrets for acquiring and conserving divine Wisdom”.  224 pages, with illustrations.
