With the serious demeanor of a hardened soldier, Father de Montfort was never seen without his greatest weapon: the rosary. This is a statement that I would gladly sign with my blood. His wife led the mysteries while he stood guard with a whip to keep the aggressions of young hoodlums at bay.
After praying in this way for some time, the public square rosary became a curious attraction. People came in crowds to pray, as if some great church ceremonies were taking place, and soon, the disorders in the square ceased. Frequent fasting, wearing hair shirts and chains beneath his clothing, and being tortured by devils who would rob him of his sleep were his constant lot. But these paled in comparison to the spiritual sufferings he endured.
The Holy See
After having given a very effective mission, the people were enthusiastic and had constructed one of the famous pyramids of immoral and heretical material to burn. Just as Father de Montfort was finishing the last sermon of the mission and preparing to go out and burn the pile, the vicar of the diocese arrived and forbade him from continuing.
Father de Montfort immediately came down from the pulpit and knelt to receive a rebuke from the vicar. When word spread that the pile of immoral books was not going to be burned, gangs of evil boys converged upon the pile and ran off with the bad material. If I could buy back those evil books and pictures by shedding my blood, I would shed every last drop of it. Another custom of Father de Montfort consisted in building a Calvary scene on the highest point overlooking a town once a mission was completed.
At Pontchateau, when he announced his determination of building a monumental Calvary on a neighboring hill, the idea was enthusiastically received by the inhabitants. For fifteen months between and peasants worked daily without recompense. The finished Cross was over fifty feet tall! On the day of dedication, the order came from the king that the whole scene should be demolished, and the land restored to its former condition.
The Jansenists had convinced the king that a base for a British invasion was being erected, and for several months peasants, watched by a company of soldiers, were compelled to carry out the work of destruction. Let us build it in our hearts. Blessed be God! From the start of his missions, Father de Montfort gathered together the sick and suffering into what would come to be called the Friends of the Cross. In his first assignment at Poitiers, the sick and suffering would meet under his direction, led in prayer by a blind woman. In his Circular Letter to the Friends of the Cross, he captures in words his superb imitation of Our Savior that he spread throughout France:.
The avaricious are united to make money and amass gold and silver; you must combine your efforts to acquire the eternal treasures hidden in the Cross. Pleasure-seekers unite to enjoy themselves; you must be united to suffer. I must confess that I am charmed and captivated by it. It is brighter than the sun, higher than the heavens, more magnificent and resplendent than all the titles given to kings and emperors.
It is the glorious title of Jesus Christ, true God and true man. It is the genuine title of a Christian. One year before his death, he was so consumed with love and the presence of Our Lady, that he experienced a type of Transfiguration before a congregation in La Rochelle to whom he was speaking. This is how one of his first biographers describes the scene:. Stephen, a reflection of the glory of his transfigured Lord. All of a sudden, his worn and wasted face…became luminous.
Rays of glory seemed to go forth from it…so that even they who were used to looking at him knew him only by his voice. By the time of his death he had been kicked out of all but two dioceses, France having more than at the time. As he predicted during his life, the devil did all in his power to keep the prolific writings of this great priest from spreading.

Over a hundred years later, someone rummaging through a box of old books happened upon a manuscript titled Treatise on True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin. True Devotion to Mary soon spread far and wide, translated into dozens of languages and inspiring countless Catholics to follow the sublime path outlined by this humble priest. Renewed interest and deep spiritual renewal would eventually propel Father de Montfort to be recognized as a great saint and Doctor of the Church, canonized by Pope Pius XII in In this spiritual masterpiece, Saint Louis de Montfort shows the idea of spiritual slavery through the Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary as the means for bringing about the kingdom of Our Lord Jesus Christ on earth.
He will fill them with His gifts, especially wisdom, by which they will produce wonders of grace. My dear friend, when will that happy time come, that age of Mary, when many souls, chosen by Mary and given her by the most High God, will hide themselves completely in the depths of her soul, becoming living copies of her, loving and glorifying Jesus?
That day will dawn only when the devotion I teach is understood and put into practice. Read More Let us learn to keep a perfectly even temper, so important to our spiritual life, and a harmonious state of mind so that we may face all situations without anxiety. Joseph Marello. Cyril was born in Alexandria, Egypt, in , and was the nephew of Theophilus, the patriarch of the city. When his uncle died in , Cyril took his position on the see of Alexandria.
He soon began a series of attacks against the Novatians, a religion started by the antipope Novatian. He closed their churches and drove Jews from the city.
Cyril sent the heretic a mild expostulation, but to no avail. Both parties then appealed to Pope St. Clementine, and Cyril was appointed to depose Nestorius. In , Cyril presided over the Third General Council at Ephesus, attended by some two hundred bishops, which condemned all the tenets of Nestorius and his followers. However, upon the arrival of Archbishop John of Antioch and forty-two followers who believed Nestorius to be innocent, they held a council of their own and deposed Cyril.
Emperor Theodosius II had both Cyril and Nestorius arrested but released Cyril on the arrival of papal legates who confirmed the council's actions against Nestorius and declared Cyril innocent of all charges leveled against him. Two years later, Archbishop John, representing the moderate Antiochene bishops, and Cyril reached an agreement and issued a joint condemnation, and Nestorius was forced into exile. Cyril died in at Antioch. He was named a Doctor of the Church in There was once a young country wife who practiced devotion to Holy Mary, just as her mother had taught her to do.
This simple young lady considered herself fortunate to have married a handsome soldier. Little did she know that her soldier-husband had made a deal with the devil, that he would sell his wife for a certain sum of money. One crisp, autumn morning the couple went out for their customary walk. Oddly, this time the young man insisted on heading towards the forest. It was at the forest where he intended to deliver his young bride over to the devil. On their way to the forest, the couple passed in front of a Church dedicated to the Virgin Mary.
The wife, overtaken with a desire to enter the church begged her husband to allow her to pray a Hail Mary in that church. As the young lady entered the church, Holy Mary came forth from it, taking the form of the wife and accompanied the man into the forest.
Why have you brought me instead of your wife, my enemy, the mother of God? Go, flee to hell. She then disappeared and that wretched man repented, amended his life and became a husband worthy of his simple country wife. We would love to hear from you. All fields required.
