St. Louis Marie’s writings were an expression of his preaching, the fruit of deep study and constant meditation. They can be summed up in three words–Wisdom, the Cross, and Mary. Wisdom for St. Louis de Montfort, is another name for Jesus, the Word of God, the eternal Wisdom who became man. In the thought of St. Louis, our aim in the spiritual life is union with Christ-Wisdom; and in accordance with the plan of God, this necessarily involves the Cross and Mary.
This book is divided into two main parts:
1) True devotion to Our Lady in general.
2) The perfect true devotion, or holy slavery.
The aim is to lead us to a closer union with Christ through a more faithful observance of our baptismal promises. It is not a question of saying something special or extra prayers to our Lady, but of living a life of total consecration to Jesus and his Mother, and for their glory.
