True Devotion to Mary by St. Louis de Montfort was a spiritual culture shock. I think the only reason I was able to give St. Louis de Montfort the benefit of the doubt is because I knew that our beloved John Paul II had embraced this devotion.
But then I remembered the three Magi who offered their gifts of gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. I could see them in my mind, placing the gifts at Our Lady’s feet. They had no difficulty in believing that she would take those gifts and offer them to her Son at the right moment for the right purpose.
If the Magi could entrust their gifts to the mother of an infant king, then maybe I could entrust her with my gifts as well.
