Priest of the Company of Mary

I feel a tremendous urge to make our Lord and his holy Mother loved, to go in a humble and simple way to teach catechism to the poor in country places and to arouse in sinners a devotion to our Blessed Lady ……  I know very well, my dear Father, that I am not worthy to do such honorable work, but when I see the needs of the Church I cannot help pleading continually for a small and poor band of good priests to do this work under the banner and protection of the Blessed Virgin. (St. Louis Marie de Montfort)

Itinerant Preacher

The ministry of preaching the word of God being the most extensive, the most wholesome and the most difficult of all, the missionaries will apply themselves unceasingly to study and to prayer in order to obtain from God the gift of wisdom so necessary to a true preacher to know and to savor and to bring souls to savor the truth. (St. Louis Marie de Montfort)

Retreat Master

No matter how great their accomplishments may appear to others, they attach far more importance to what they do within themselves in their interior life, in the company of the Holy Virgin. For there they work at the great task of perfection, compared to which all other work is mere child's play. (St. Louis Marie de Montfort)

Montfort Publications

My heart has just dictated all that I have just written, with a particular joy, in order to show that the divine Mary has been unknown until now, and that this is one of the reasons why Jesus Christ is not at all known as he should be. (St. Louis Marie de Montfort)

Shrine of Our Lady of the Island

You will not have anything to distinguish you from others except your modest demeanor, your holy silence and your continual prayer.  You could, however, without making yourselves conspicuous, have a rosary in your hand and a cross around your neck to show that you are on a pilgrimage and not making an ordinary journey.  (St. Louis Marie de Montfort)
