Quote of the Day
St. Louis-Marie de Montfort reveals a beautiful secret, a shortcut to holiness. And the secret is MARY, the masterpiece of God’s creation.

De Montfort shows how one can best know, love and serve Our Lord, with Mary as our Mother, Model and Guide. True Devotion to Mary is an invaluable treasure, indeed.

It has been commended by many popes ever since it was discovered in a coffer in 1842, where it lay hidden for almost 150 years. Pope John Paul II read it often as a young man, and he took his episcopal and papal motto Totus tuus from it.

It has also been the inspiration of my own episcopal motto: Servus.
