St. Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort
Dear Family of Mary!
Today is a special feast day, the memorial of St. Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort. St. Louis was born in 1673, and became a Dominican priest who loved the poor, lived humbly and had a great devotion to Our Lady. He wrote “True Devotion to Mary” in which he shared his understanding of Our Lady’s role in the latter days, but it was not published before his death. It was found many years later, in 1842 and after much study, was published in 1853. He understood in a prophetic way the role that Our Lady would play in the last days. He was certain she was indispensable to the return of Jesus Christ. He wrote “True Devotion to Mary” to explain Mary’s role in the coming of Christ.
One of the things that he said was that Mary would become present to souls, who would become united to her in love. These souls would glorify God in the last days. Here is an excerpt from “True Devotion to Mary” in which he describes those souls who loved Mary:
“When will that happy day come???” I believe that that day has come, in Medjugorje! Our Lady has come to fill us with her soul and spirit, by teaching us how to love her Son and receive the Holy Spirit. In fact, we are being “wrapped up in Mary” just like that saintly man St. Louis described. (I think he was referring to himself!)
September 25, 2019 “Dear children! Today I am calling you to pray for my intentions so that I may help you. Little children, pray the Rosary and meditate the mysteries of the Rosary because, in your life, you are also passing through joys and sorrows. In this way, you are transforming the mysteries into your life, because life is a mystery until you place it into God’s hands. In this way, you will have the experience of faith like Peter who met Jesus and the Holy Spirit filled his heart. Little children, you are also called to witness by living the love with which, day by day, God wraps you with my presence. Therefore, little children, be open and pray with the heart in faith. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
You see, she tells us what God is doing today:
We are being “wrapped up in Mary”, just as St. Louis described. We are those souls who breathe Mary just as the body breaths air!! This is the age of Mary!! She has come down to us and she has chosen us to be living copies of herself.
When St. Louis wrote these words, no one could have imagined Our Lady would actually come to be present in a little village in a remote part of Hercegovina. St. Louis would not have been able to predict such an event. But the fruit is evident now. Many, many souls have encountered Our Lady in Medjugorje, and are now living according to her school, bringing her love and truth to a world so much in need of it.
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
