“The more we honour the Blessed Virgin, the more we honour Jesus Christ, because we honour Mary only that we may the more perfectly honour Jesus, since we go to her only as the way by which we are to find the end we are seeking, which is Jesus.”
-St. Louis Marie de Montfort.
Four members of our network have expressed interest in undertaking a group study of St. Louis Marie de Montfort’s ‘True Devotion to Mary’ during the 2021/2022 school year. They are eager to share the experience with other interested adults.
Although written in 1716 St. Louis Marie de Montfort’s book is still considered one of the greatest ever written on the Blessed Virgin Mary and a masterpiece of Marian theology. Highly recommended by no less than eight popes and countless saints, e.g. Mother Teresa, St. Maxmilian Kolbe, St. Pope John Paul II, it does present some challenges, e.g. as a book written in the sixteenth century, but the book has also supported countless readers get beyond “learning more about Mary” to a personal encounter with her and with all three persons of the Blessed Trinity.
To support interested persons come to a decision our members will host two information meetings on Our Lady’s birthday, i.e. 8th September 2021.
The first will be via Zoom (7 – 7.40 pm) and the second an in-person meeting (8 – 8.40 pm) in The Family Centre, Brackernagh, Ballinasloe, Co. Galway. H53 NX59.
Owing to Covid 19 public health restrictions the second meeting will be reserved to sixteen participants and interested persons are encouraged to reserve places in advance by emailing Justin @ firstname.lastname@example.org or by ringing or texting him @ 087 6171527.
Finally, the group wishes to emphasise that participation in the information meeting is just that. Our interested members appreciate that the study group is more likely to flourish if it comprises persons who really want to participate and who enjoy interacting with others. They appreciate that some participants may value the introduction the meetings will provide but prefer to read the book in the conventional way.
