Very few dispute (I may be one of them, since I am a St. Bernard guy) that St. Louis Grignon de Montfort's "True Devotion to Mary" is the greatest Marian book ever written. The spiritual fruits, the conversion, the spiritualities and the millions of consecrations to Mary attest to its importance.
But with his new book "Behold the Handmaid of the Lord," from Ave Maria Press, Marian theologian Father Edward Looney has provided an even more practical way to make progress with this classic by masterfully summarizing the central teachings of St. Louis in a 10-day personal retreat that will bless even those who have completed the full devotion.
The book is indeed, a very practical work book for a personal 10-day retreat to better encounter the presence of Our Beloved Mother in our daily lives.
During the course of those 10 days, you’ll explore 10 different titles for Mary popularized by St. Louis. Each presents a distinct aspect of her motherhood and protection while illuminating the spiritual path to Jesus through Mary.
