About the Author

The author of The Secret of the Rosary and the originator of total consecration to Mary, St. Louis-Marie Grignion De Montfort (1673-1716) remains one of the greatest apostles of Marian devotion the world has ever known. As a young priest, De Montfort dedicated himself to preaching to the people. This highly gifted orator's language was simple but full of divine love, much as you will find in True Devotion to Mary. De Montfort's whole life was marked by constant prayer, love for the poor and holy joy in humiliations and persecutions. De Montfort was canonized by Pius XII in 1947.

It is laid out in small chunks so that you can take a ten minute dip into it, absorb what you've read and carry on from there.

You might want to have this non-pious but incredibly inspirational book handy. It will mystically...and miraculously encourage you to pick up your rosary and pray - in perhaps a very different and more powerful way than you have ever done before. And if you don't believe in any of this, just try it. A life changing book as much as the rosary is a soul-saving spiritual weapon against evil - (that few can deny is alive and well on planet earth) and one of the most effective heavenly life-preservers gifted to we mere mortals.

This is a little bit of pious reading you will return to again and again. Although the writing style may make it somewhat dated, the truths that come forth are just as potent today as they were when this was first written. Vatican II types who have tried to reduce devotion to Mary to something optional and outdated will hopefully have their eyes opened wide after reading this, and re-discover why the Rosary is, after the Mass, the most powerful prayer the Holy Catholic Church posseses. Miss this book at your soul's peril!

Wow, this book was a real eye-opener for me in a subtle, yet convincing way, which has only served to strengthen my faith. I highly recommend this book to everyone interested in learning more about why the Catholic church holds the Virgin Mary in such high regard and why every single person should too.

Format: Paperback
One of the things I love most about the Catholic Church is that it is both divinely mystical and earthily practical at the same time, and I think "The Secret of the Rosary" by the French saint Louis de Montfort is one of the books that illustrates that thought the best.

"The Secret of the Rosary" not only teaches a person what the rosary is and how to pray it, but also how it feeds the soul. And then it goes on to tell readers how best to implement the prayers and meditations of the rosary so that they can grow closer to Jesus and strengthen their souls.

It is a really interesting and informative book -- inspiring, too! It is laid out in small chunks so that you can take a ten minute dip into it, absorb what you've read and carry on from there. Every time I read a small section, I come away feeling refreshed and renewed in my spirit. It gives me a real hunger to pray the rosary (which is a meditation on the life of Jesus Christ) with attention and deovtion.

Since it was written well over two hundred years ago, St. Louis's style of writing might seem a bit odd at first: He lived during a time when a flowery turn of phrase was greatly admired. It may seem rather quaint to a modern reader. However, the good saint's personality shines through and you almost feel as if he's sitting across the table from you, speaking to you personally. You'll get used to the style very quickly and if you're like most people I know who have read and recommended this book to me, you'll come to find it very cozy and comforting.

I highly recommend this book, as well asThe Story of a Soul: The Autobiography of Saint Therese of Lisieux for another homey, sweet and inspiring book by another French saint.

EVERYONE who is devoted to our Spiritual Mother should have this book. It gives fifty different "roses" or meditations on the mysteries of the Rosary.
Trust me on this. St. Louis is the master of True Devotion to Mary. After all, St. Louis is where JP2 gets his motto, "Totus Tuus"!

To a practicing Catholic, this little, very accessible book on the Rosary is a real blessing to find. Absolutely no other book has helped me understand the value of the Rosary better. St. Louis de Monfort loved the Virgin Mary very much, it's obvious, and writes about her and the Rosary with passion, faith and conviction.

I though the book showed very interesting points of the rosary. It made the rosary seem like a soul instead if an object. Great ideas.
