This little booklet by St. Louis De Montfort teaches what the rosary is and how to recite it. Probably the finest book ever written about the Rosary; it appeals to all ages.
"I wish to give you a rose-a crimson one, because the Precious Blood of Our Lord has fallen upon it." With these words St. Louis de Montfort invites you to discover a spiritual treasury of mental and vocal prayer blessed with the divine approval of heaven and the generous indulgence of the Church. Your life can change forever when you discover The Secret of the Rosary.
A champion of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament, the author of True Devotion to Mary and the originator of total consecration to Mary, St. Louis de Montfort (1673-1716) remains one of the greatest apostles of Marian Devotion the world has ever known. Now, read by EWTN Radio personality Matthew Arnold on four CD’s or cassettes, this all-new digital recording of de Montfort's timeless inspirational classic, The Secret of the Rosary, reveals to you dramatic evidence of the awesome spiritual power of this most Catholic of devotions-and how to experience it for yourself.
In 53 brief chapters that he calls "roses" St. Louis covers virtually every aspect of this amazing gift from heaven. You'll discover the origin of this great devotion, marvels and miracles of the Rosary, the meaning of the prayers, the testimony of other great saints, clergy and spiritual writers, and more. But this presentation is not merely a fascinating exploration of a devotion of inestimable value by a canonized master of Catholic spirituality, but also an intimate journey into the heart of Our Lord and Our Lady and an effective tool that will inspire and empower you to recite the Rosary with tremendous spiritual benefits to you and your loved ones.
