My Soul Doth Magnify the Lord
Theme of Retreat: Mary's Immaculate Heart and St. Louis de Montfort's Perfect Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Exhortation: True Devotion to Mary is a sure, short, certain and perfect way to arrive at that union with God which is Christ-like perfection.
Summary: A central theme of the Mission is Mary's Immaculate Heart, which proclaims the infinite greatness, wisdom, and love of God. By growing in our love and devotion to the most holy Mother of God, our hearts become like hers, and we too can magnify the Lord with our entire being--all our thoughts, sentiments, words, and actions. A marvelous way to accomplish this is St. Louis de Montfort's Perfect Consecration to Jesus Christ, or Perfect Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
These retreat talks begin by presenting a brief summary of the Message of Our Lady of Fatima as it relates to Perfect Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. The talks then continue by presenting some foundational principles of Catholic doctrine and spirituality, which are also the basis for St. Louis de Montfort's Perfect Devotion to Mary: God, baptism, consecration, sin, dying to self, ridding oneself of the spirit of the world, the theological virtue of faith, and Mary's indispensable role in God's Plan of Salvation.
Finally, the talks explain, more specifically, the method taught by St. Louis de Montfort of Perfect Consecration to Jesus Christ/Perfect Devotion to Mary.
The conference talks each being with powerful and profound meditations from The City of God, the definitive biography of Our Lady by Ven. Mary of Agreda. Three sermons on “faith” are also included in this conference set.
