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.

Legion of Mary Child Safeguarding Policy
The Legion of Mary Child Safeguarding Policy aims to do everything
possible to provide a safe environment for children and young people
where they are cherished and encouraged to become involved in the life
of our Church.
The Legion of Mary is a lay apostolic association of Catholics who, with the sanction of the Church and under the powerful leadership of Mary Immaculate, Mediatrix of All Graces, serve the Church and their neighbour on a voluntary basis in about 170 countries. With the approval and support of the Popes and a great many Bishops, Priests and Religious, as well as the prayers and efforts of legionaries, the Legion, by the grace of God, has grown into a worldwide organisation with several million members.
