"Mary has produced, together with the Holy Ghost, the greatest thing which has been or ever will be—a God-Man; and she will consequently produce the greatest saints that there will be in the end of time.”
—St. Louis de Montfort
In the greatest book of Marian spirituality ever written, St. Louis de Montfort teaches the easiest, most secure, and most perfect way to sainthood. There is no better way to become holy quickly, to please God, and to guarantee your eternal salvation than being truly devoted to Mary, the Mother of God.
Covered in the book are topics such as:
- The necessity of the Blessed Virgin and of devotion to her
- The nature of perfect devotion to Mary
- The effects of devotion to Mary
- The practices of Marian devotion
The original source of the beautiful phrase “to Jesus through Mary” comes from this book, in which St. Louis sums up all of Christian life. Through his wisdom and love of the Blessed Virgin, he describes the path to holiness and helps us to learn the lessons that have saved countless souls.
In a simple but profound way, St. Louis reveals all the spiritual benefits of true devotion to Mary. St. Louis de Montfort lived in the 17th century and is known as one of the greatest apostles of Marian devotion. In his life as a priest, he was dedicated to preaching to the people around him.
In doing so, he revealed to them his great love and depth of knowledge in humble but inspiring rhetoric. His life was characterized by prayer, love of the poor, and joy in his constant persecution. He was canonized by Pius XII in 1947, and his legacy as the greatest advocate of devotion to Mary is immortalized in True Devotion to Mary.
This beautifully constructed edition of True Devotion to Mary is part of the TAN Classics collection. Its simple and sturdy design will make it the perfect book to keep always by your side and to return to often.

“When Mary has struck her roots in a soul, she produces there marvels of grace, which she alone can produce, because she alone is the fruitful Virgin who never has had, and never will have, her equal in purity and in fruitfulness.”
