If you asked the saints what is the quickest way to become holy, most of them would answer one of two things: devotion to the Eucharist or devotion to Mary. We’ll save the Eucharist for another day’s post. Today I’d like you to think about the different ways you can be devoted to Mary.
St. Louis de Montfort wrote the classic True Devotion to Mary. You can read about how to follow his method of devotion in this post at Fisheaters.com.
Each religious order honors Mary in a unique way. The Rosary comes to us from the Dominicans. The brown scapular is the habit of devotion to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. Carmelite devotion to Mary focuses on imitating Mary’s contemplative spirit. You can read about it in my post Mary pondered all these things–do you?
