St. Louis de Montfort states that Mary is the quickest, easiest, and the most efficacious path to Jesus. She is the shortcut to holiness, and heaven. In our growing relationship to Mary we should cultivate two specific areas: doctrine and devotion.
We should know Marian dogmas and be able to explain them to others, but also we should cultivate a tender and loving devotion to Mary.
Doctrine without devotion leads to aridity; whereas devotion without any doctrinal foundation can easily lead to mere sentimentalism. We need both in our growing love for Mary: doctrine and devotion.
In this short essay we would like to focus upon Marian devotion and offer ten specific Marian devotions that can be undertaken to set our hearts on fire in love of Mary who will always lead us to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Authentic Marian devotion will never block our way to Jesus; rather Mary is a high speed Freeway to the Heart of Jesus. The last recorded words of Mary in the Gospel of St John in the Wedding Feast of Cana are: “Do whatever he tells you.” The best advice! If the world would only heed this advice, peace and love would reign and heaven would be ours!
