He wrote several books on the subject, and his masterpiece is the “Commentary on the Treatise on the True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin”. It’s the only number-by-number, literal commentary on the “True Devotion to Mary”.
It is such a goldmine that the Montfort Fathers themselves say:
“The “Commentary on the Treatise on the True Devotion” points out everything the reader must
know or remember in order to penetrate completely the immortal masterpiece of St. Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort. It is an essential book for whoever desires to learn the Perfect Devotion.”
They also said this book “furnishes to readers everything they must know in order to understand and taste the doctrine of Bl. Louis-Marie de Montfort.”
Furthermore, a letter from the Vatican’s Substitute Secretary of State, Giovanni Battista Montini (now known as Bl. Pope Paul VI), to Fr. Plessis, says this Commentary is “completely penetrated with the Marian piety which animated Bl. Grignion de Montfort.”

- why perfect consecration to Mary is perfect consecration to Jesus
- how to attain the heights of living a Marian life, so you can experience all the good effects of your consecration which St. Louis de Montfort talks about.
And this is just the beginning! You’ll learn the great importance of the Hail Mary for the slaves of Jesus in Mary.

Fr. Plessis says as much in the Introduction:
“Now, the “Treatise on the True Devotion” condenses in one small volume a considerable sum of dogmatic truths and spiritual counsels. Several times, the author (St. Louis) shows his intention of only saying things briefly, and he avoids lingering over proofs. Benedict XV himself notes this character: “If the book is of great authority and great unction, it is also “little by volume”.
“Doctrinal density, included in a brief text! The same conciseness naturally calls for explanations. Otherwise many readers will be confused, and will declare themselves incapable of enjoying the Montfortian spirituality.”
And it can help these words of St. Louis de Montfort come true for you.
“It would be no wonder if, at the hour of death, it should be found that a person faithful to this practice shall, by the means of it, have delivered many souls from Purgatory, and converted many sinners, though he shall have done nothing more than the ordinary actions of his state of life. What joy at his judgment! What glory in his eternity!” (“True Devotion to Mary”, #172)
This book is the only one of its kind. It’s so good that since its publication the world has not seen any attempts to beat it, produce something better, or improve upon it.

No one’s probably ever told you in any detail how important you are in God’s plan for “all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Tim. 2:4).
Little wonder: most people don’t give it any thought.
But the simple fact of the matter is this: God and Our Lady need you, because God has willed it so, as you’re about to see several Popes explain.
And I’m going to give you the big picture right now. This includes the immense reward which can be yours.
Are you with me? Let’s go.
In his Encyclical, Mystici Corporis (On the Mystical Body of Christ, #44), Ven. Pope Pius XII wrote:
“Because Christ the Head holds such an eminent position, one must not think that He does not require the help of the Body…Yet this, also, must be held, marvelous though it may seem: Christ has need of His members…Moreover as our Savior does not rule the Church directly in a visible manner, He wills to be helped by the members of His Body in carrying out the work of redemption…
“This is a deep mystery, and an inexhaustible subject of meditation, that the salvation of many depends on the prayers and voluntary penances which the members of the Mystical Body of Jesus Christ offer for this intention and on the cooperation of pastors of souls and of the faithful, especially of fathers and mothers of families, a cooperation which they must offer to our Divine Savior as though they were His associates.”
“There reigns among men, by the hidden and benign mystery of the divine will, a supernatural solidarity whereby the sin of one harms the others just as the holiness of one also benefits the others. Thus the Christian faithful give each other mutual help to attain their supernatural aim. Thus while attaining their own salvation, they have also cooperated in the salvation of their brothers in the unity of the Mystical Body.”
You are so important Our Lady herself pleads with you, because these poor, unhappy souls need your help right now - - today!
In God’s Providence, nothing happens by accident. And so you’re at this page today for a reason. Even if you bookmark it, you may never come back to it. Like other pages you’ve bookmarked. And so I encourage you to take action today while it’s still fresh on your mind.
Because it boils down to this: Mary needs and wants your help NOW!
(much greater than you think)
“The formation and the education of the great Saints who shall come at the end of the world are reserved for (Mary)” (“True Devotion to Mary”, #35),
“I have said that this would come to pass particularly at the end of the world, and indeed presently, because the Most High with His holy Mother has to form for Himself great Saints, who shall surpass most of the other Saints in sanctity, as much as the cedars of Lebanon outgrow the little shrubs, as has been revealed to a holy soul, whose life has been written by a great servant of God” (#47).
You may or may not believe we’re in the Last Times, and you’re free not to, but Sr. Lucia of Fatima thought so and said so.
Here’s what she said to Fr. Fuentes on December 26, 1957:
“Father, the Most Holy Virgin did not tell me that we are in the last times of the world, but She made me understand this for three reasons. The first reason is because She told me that the devil is in the mood for engaging in a decisive battle against the Virgin. And a decisive battle is the final battle where one side will be victorious and the other side will suffer defeat. Hence from now on we must choose sides. Either we are for God or we are for the devil; there is no other possibility.”
Now…in case you were wondering, like St. Peter: “What therefore shall we have?” (Mt. 19:27)…
Can you imagine that? Your being greater than most of the other Saints? I know it seems unbelievable, but St. Louis says it. And he tells you why this is the case…
“There have been some Saints, but they have been in small numbers, who have passed by this sweet path to go to Jesus…But the rest of the Saints, who are the greater number, although they have all had devotion to our Blessed Lady, have not on that account, or at least very little, entered upon this way. This is why they have had to pass through ruder and more dangerous trials” (“True Devotion to Mary”, #152).
This way is indeed the road less traveled. And because of this, you can not only surpass those Saints, (because most of them didn’t enter upon this way), you’ll do it easier, in less time, and with less effort.
What’s more, you can get remarkable results from this Marian devotion EVEN IF you’re not a priest or in a religious order. In fact, St. Louis says you can do more than they do.
Listen to what he says:
The Saint continues: “By this practice, faithfully observed, you will give Jesus more glory in a month than by any other practice, however difficult, in many years” (#222).
He’s not finished. He says you can get even more.
“It would be no wonder if, at the hour of death, it should be found that a person faithful to this practice shall, by means of it, have delivered many souls from Purgatory, and converted many sinners, though he shall have done nothing more than the ordinary actions of his state of life. What joy at his judgment! What glory in his eternity!” (#172)
And did you notice how he said…“though he shall have done nothing more than the ordinary actions of his state of life”? The best thing about this Marian devotion is you don’t need to add any new spiritual practices to get such an immense reward. More on this in a second.
But first, to give you more encouragement, he said:
“To understand the excellence of this motive, we must understand also what a good it is to convert a sinner, or to deliver a soul from Purgatory. It is an infinite good, which is greater than to create heaven and earth, because we give to a soul the possession of God. If by this practice we deliver but one soul in our life from Purgatory, or convert but one sinner, would not that be enough to induce a truly charitable man to embrace it?” (#172)
Is this something you want to pass up? I didn’t think so. And, for obvious reasons, Mary doesn’t want you to, either.
She wants all souls to be her children and to be with her in heaven for eternity. St. Louis explains Mary’s love for her children:
“She loves them tenderly, and more tenderly than all other mothers put together. Throw, if you can, all the natural love which all the mothers of the world have for their children into the one heart of one mother for one only child. Surely that mother will love that child immensely. Nevertheless, it is true that Mary loves her children yet more tenderly than that mother would love that child of hers” (#202).
Any mother can relate to this.
Returning briefly to Fatima, Sr. Lucia said Jesus explained to her: “The sacrifice required of every person is the fulfillment of his duties in life and the observance of My law. This is the penance that I now seek and require.” (Notice He didn’t say add more devotions or frightful penances.)
Therefore, St. Louis de Montfort could also write: “Is not this to love our neighbor perfectly? Is not this to be the true disciple of Jesus Christ, who is always to be recognized by His charity? Is not this the way to covert sinners, without any fear of vanity; and to deliver souls from Purgatory, without scarcely doing anything but what we are obliged to do by our state of life?” (#171).
Now the Montfort Fathers call their own Fr. Jean-Marie Texier “a remarkable spiritual writer.” And he said:
“Legion are the souls who become discouraged because they believe they are doing nothing, or at least doing nothing much. They imagine that to please God much, to work for His greater glory, to save sinners or deliver souls from Purgatory, it is necessary to undertake extraordinary things, to impose on themselves fasts, pilgrimages, long prayers, etc.
“But no, St. Louis-Marie de Montfort says to them: stay on your path. Be content with doing what you usually do, but do it in the spirit of Mary, in union with her intentions and dispositions.”
And this is what makes the “True Devotion to Mary Series” unique: every book in it (like the “Commentary on the Treatise on the True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin”) helps you understand and make your own the spirit of Mary, which drives this devotion.
But here’s the kicker: this necessary spirit is something St. Louis de Montfort says most people don’t have. Even most of those consecrated to Mary are missing the boat. They’re scraping by in their Marian devotion, and without the right tools, or unless they’re lucky, their Marian devotion will continue to be off-kilter.
Here’s what he said:
“As the essential of this devotion consists in the interior which it ought to form, it will not be equally comprehended by everybody. Some will stop at what is exterior in it, and will go no further, and these will be the greatest number. Some, in small number, will enter into its inward spirit; but they will only mount one step. Who will mount to the second step? Who will get as far as the third?” (#119)
But like I said before, “Commentary on the Treatise on the True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin” and the other books in the “True Devotion to Mary Series” can help you do all your actions in this interior spirit, which drove the Marian devotion of St. Louis de Montfort.
And you can be sure you’re on the right path, because this Marian devotion has always been approved by the Church and embraced by numerous Popes in their own spiritual lives, as St. Louis de Montfort testifies.
No wonder Our Lady of Fatima said Jesus “wants to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart. To whoever embraces this devotion I promise salvation; these souls shall be dear to God, as flowers placed by Me to adorn His throne” (June 13, 1917).
And she added: “You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart.”
Imagine what you can do for these souls. And imagine how joyfully they’ll thank you for rescuing them, and how happy you’ll feel for having helped save them because of the powerful information you discover in this book.
If Jesus said: “For whosoever shall give you to drink a cup of water in My name, because you belong to Christ: amen I say to you, he shall not lose his reward” (Mk. 9:40), imagine the reward He’ll give you for helping save souls, and possessing the infinite Good: Himself.
Picture the uplifting scene of souls radiant with the light of God’s glory not only thanking you for helping them get to Heaven, but also admiring and congratulating you for having the courage to take a path (which as you read above) St. Louis de Montfort says most Saints didn’t take.
Considering the number of people who’ll die every day in the coming weeks, months, and years, you can wonder how many can experience a happy judgment because you’re taking action today. And you may begin to wonder about what it’ll be like to experience meeting these happy souls one day.
By clicking the “ADD TO CART” button below today, you’re not only making a valuable acquisition for your future (both here and in eternity), but also for the eternal happiness of countless souls you haven’t even met yet.
And recall what Our Lady of Fatima said: “Pray much and make sacrifices for sinners, for many souls go to hell because there is no one to make sacrifices for them.”
Notice how she uses the PRESENT TENSE. She didn’t say ‘will go.’ The present tense means ‘are going now.’ Therefore, it’s important for you to take action TODAY. This is an urgent, CURRENT problem, which, if not solved, turns into an eternal problem.
And considering you can own this book for what amounts to a few cents a day, this problem can be solved for the fraction of the cost of a gallon of gas.
Taking action today and helping Our Lady (who needs you) puts you more firmly on the road to eternal happiness, because as St. James says: “He must know that he who causes a sinner to be converted from the error of his way, shall save his soul from death, and shall cover a multitude of sins” (James 5:20).
St. Paul said “that eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither has it entered into the heart of man, what things God has prepared for them that love Him” (1 Cor. 2:9).
St. Louis de Montfort said: “Mary, being the most gracious and generous of all pure creatures, never lets herself be outdone in love and generosity. As a holy man said of her, “For an egg she gives an ox”; that is to say, for a little that is given to her, she gives much of what she has received from God” (#181).
At this point, you’ve seen how important you are in God’s plan for “all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Tim. 2:4). And how Our Lady pleads for your help. You know the eternal misery you’re helping souls avoid, and you have an idea of the immense reward you can get by helping them get to Heaven.
Commenting on the passage, “And Mary rising up in those days went into the hill country with haste into a city of Juda” (Lk. 1:39), St. Ambrose said: “The grace of the Holy Spirit knows no slow movements.”
So you can see why your taking action today makes you like Our Lady in a unique way, and puts you in a small group of people.
And you will be unique, because experience has proven people will do little to prevent troubles. They don’t cross bridges in advance. They’ll do anything to cure troubles which exist, but they’re not inclined to anticipate disasters. Most people aren’t as wise as Noah, who began building the ark BEFORE it started raining.
But I suspect you’re more like Noah than most people – and you must be, because you’ve read this far.
And this Marian devotion makes you even more special to Mary, because St. Louis calls it a “secret of grace, unknown by the greater number of Christians, known even to few of the devout, and practiced and relished by a far less number still” (#82).
What’s more, by discovering how to live your consecration to Mary, you’ll be following the example of Jesus Himself.
As a result, St. Louis de Montfort wrote:
“Oh, how highly we glorify God, when after the example of Jesus, we submit ourselves to Mary!
“Having, then, before our eyes an example so plain and so well-known to the whole world, are we so senseless as to imagine that we can find a more perfect or a shorter means of glorifying God than that of submitting ourselves to Mary, after the example of her Son?” (#139)
“This practice of devotion to our Blessed Lady is also a perfect path by which to go and unite ourselves to Jesus, because the divine Mary is the most perfect and the most holy of creatures, and because Jesus, who has come to us most perfectly, took no other road for His great and admirable journey” (#157).
Furthermore, St. Louis doesn’t hesitate to say living this consecration to Mary helps you imitate all three divine Persons of the Most Holy Trinity. This deserves to be quoted in full:
“Let us recall here, as a proof of the dependence we ought to have on our Blessed Lady, what I have said above in bringing forward the example which the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost give of this dependence.
“The Father has not given, and does not give, His Son except by her; He has no children but by her; and communicates no graces but by her. God the Son has not been formed for the whole world in general except by her; and He is not daily formed and engendered except by her, in union with the Holy Ghost; neither does He communicate His merits and His virtues except by her.
“The Holy Ghost has not formed Jesus Christ except by her; neither does He form the members of Our Lord’s Mystical Body except by her; and through her alone does He dispense His favors and His gifts.
“After so many and such pressing examples of the Most Holy Trinity, can we, without an extreme blindness, dispense ourselves from Mary, and not consecrate ourselves to her, and depend on her to go to God?” (#140)
