The Secret of Mary
"The Secret of Mary" sets forth the very heart of True Devotion to Mary. In this small but powerful book, St. Louis de Montfort shows why this "secret", known by few is such an excellent yet easy means of union with God. Followed and recommended by Popes and Saints, this way of life is nevertheless perfect for lay people, as well as for priests and religious. It is primarily an interior practice to be carried out daily, from moment to moment-and if followed faithfully, it will certainly bring a person to profound holiness and great effectiveness as an apostle." Tan Publishers
The Secret of the Rosary
"Canon William says of De Montfort's book, The Secret of the Rosary, it goes far beyond mere research. We might say it contains everything that can be said about the Rosary-its content and form, its real worth, about the instruction necessary for its appreciation and use."
Book of Mary
This beautiful collection of prayers affirms that "as we honor the Mother, we also truly know the Son and give him love, glory, and obedience."
The beautiful pictures from Fr. Michael’s farewell Mass and reception are now available at http://www.lifefocusphotography.com/clients/HolyCrossChapel/index.html. Thank you to Life Focus Photography for capturing the moments! Read More
