Chapter 8

  1. Through whom did the salvation of the world begin?
  2. Through whom must it be consecrated?
  3. Why must Mary be made known in the Second Coming of Christ?
  4. Why must Mary shine forth lovingly in mercy? In might? In grace?
  5. Why must Mary be terrible to the devil and his crew in these latter times?
  6. Why is our times called the age of Mary?

2 thoughts on “Chapter 8

  1. 1. “It was through Mary that the salvation of the world was begun.
    2.It is through Mary that it must be consummated, Mary hardly appeared at all in the first coming of Jesus Christ.
    3. in the second coming of Jesus Christ, Mary has to be made known and revealed by the Holy Ghost, in order that, through her, Jesus Christ may be known, loved and served.”
    4. Mary must shine forth more than ever in mercy, in might and in grace, in these latter times:
    in mercy, to bring back and lovingly receive the poor strayed sinners who shall be converted and shall return to the Catholic Church”
    in might, against the enemies of God, idolaters, schismatics, Mahometans, Jews and souls hardened in impiety, who shall rise in terrible revolt against God to seduce all those who shall be contrary to them, and to make them fall by promises and threats;
    and finally, she must shine forth in grace, in order to animate and sustain the valiant soldiers and faithful servants of Jesus Christ, who shall do battle for His interests
    5.Mary must be terrible to the devil and his crew, as an army ranged in battle, principally in these latter times because the devil, knowing that he has but little time, and now less than ever, to destroy souls, will every day redouble his efforts and his combats. He will raise up new persecutions, and put terrible snares before the faithful servants and true children of Mary.
    6.We are living in a particular way the age of Mary. Call to mind the solemn definition of the Immaculate Conception in 1854; the Blessed Virgin’s apparitions in 1830 to St. Catherine Laboure, in which she requested the spread of the Miraculous Medal; her apparitions at Lourdes in 1858, at Pontmain in 1871; at Fatima in 1917, at Banneaux, Belgium in 1932, to cite only those on which the Church has made pronouncement. (Our Lady of Guadalupe was in 1531- a few centuries earlier).

  2. In St. Louis de Montfort’s True Devotion, he claims, “It was through Mary that the salvation of the world was begun, and it is through Mary that it must be consummated.” Mary must be known in the second coming of Jesus Christ and revealed by the Holy Spirit in order that, through her, Jesus Christ may be known, loved and served.

    Mary must shine forth in mercy to bring back and lovingly receive the poor strayed sinners who shall be converted and shall return to the Catholic Church; in might, against the enemies of God, idolaters, schismatics, Mahometans, Jews and souls hardened in impiety, who shall rise in terrible revolt against God to seduce all those who shall be contrary to them, and to make them fall by promises and threats; and finally, she must shine forth in grace, in order to animate and sustain the valiant soldiers and faithful servants of Jesus Christ, who shall do battle for His interests.

    Mary must be terrible to the devil and his crew, as an army ranged in battle, principally in these latter times, because the devil, knowing that he has but little time, and now less than ever, to destroy souls, will every day redouble his efforts and his combats.

    Father Chaminade declared at the beginning of the nineteenth century that the time for the reign of the Blessed Virgin had come. He was thoroughly convinced that our Saviour had reserved His Blessed Mother the honor of being the main support of the Church in these latter days. From the nineteenth century until now, more religious societies have been established in honor of Mary. Consider all of the Marian apparitions.
