The Secret of the Rosary by St. Louis Mary de Montfort
By St. Louis Mary de Montfort.
Imprimatur 1954. 188 page book.
Some writers have the knack of condensing within the pages of a single book whole panoramas of thought. St. Louis Mary De Montfort was such a writer. In his classic work True Devotion to Mary, Montfort has summed up the whole of Mariology and Marian Spirituality in simple, popular yet unequivocal language. In his treatise on The Love of Eternal Wisdom, the Saint has condensed the story of the divine Romance between the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity, Eternal Wisdom, and man. In the present book the Secret of the Rosary, the saintly author sums up beautifully everything one should know about the Rosary. With a flair for the true and the authentic, he leads the reader step by step into the marvelous Christian perfection and “a divine summary of the mysteries of the life, passion, death, and glory of Jesus and Mary.”
The Secret of the Rosary “goes far beyond mere research. We might say that it contains everything that can be said about the Rosary, about its content and form, its real worth, about the instruction necessary for its appreciation and use.” F.M. William, “The Rosary: It’s History and Meaning,” 1952.
