If you receive Holy Communion week after week… perhaps even daily… and if you read the Eucharistic writings of the Saints, and wonder why your devotion to the Blessed Sacrament still feels like it’s going nowhere, it’s no wonder.
You see, the Holy Spirit has kept to Himself secrets about the best way to receive Holy Communion.
Don’t believe me?
Well…listen to what St. Louis de Montfort has to say:
“Predestinate soul, here is a secret the Most High has taught me, which I have not been able to find in any book, old or new. I confide it to you, by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit” (Secret of Mary, # 1).
And elsewhere, he says the Holy Spirit didn’t reveal this to most of the Saints.
“There have been some Saints, but they have been in small numbers, who have passed by this sweet path to go to Jesus, because the Holy Ghost, faithful Spouse of Mary, has by a singular grace disclosed it to them.
“But the rest of the Saints, who are the greater number, although they have all had devotion to our Blessed Lady, have not on that account, or at least very little, entered upon this way. This is why they have had to pass through ruder and more dangerous trials” (True Devotion to Mary, #152).
That’s why you probably haven’t found the Saints’ writings as helpful as you’d hoped.
So, if you want to get an abundance of graces from Holy Communion, and make your life easier in the process by using this secret of the Holy Spirit, then keep reading.
How Can You Discover The Holy Spirit’s Secrets?
As you may know, St. Louis – to whom the Holy Spirit revealed this secret – outlined his plan for applying this secret to receiving Holy Communion at the end of his “True Devotion to Mary”.
But reading St. Louis may not be enough for you, because he admits his “True Devotion to Mary” has many gaps in it.
“I have now said many things about the Most Holy Virgin; but I have many more to say, and there are infinitely more which I shall omit, whether from ignorance, inability, or want of time, in the design which I have to form a true client of Mary, and a true disciple of Jesus Christ” (True Devotion, #111).
He also admitted…
“I have found many people who, with admirable zeal, have adopted the exterior practices of this holy slavery of Jesus and Mary, but I have found only a few who have accepted its interior spirit, and still fewer who have persevered in it” (Secret, #44).
Most people fail to persevere in it despite his saying that this devotion is the “safest, easiest, shortest, and the most perfect means by which to go to Jesus Christ” (True Devotion, #55).
Now, the good news is that a highly-respected Montfort Father has filled in these gaps, especially when it comes to applying the Holy Spirit’s secret to receiving Holy Communion. He did this to such an extent, the Montfort Fathers call him “a remarkable spiritual writer.”
But before I tell you more about he filled in these gaps, Jesus points out something very important about receiving Holy Communion which most people miss.
“What shall I do then with Jesus that is called Christ?” (Mt. 27:22)
That question is as pertinent to every Catholic as it was to Pontius Pilate.
You remember this scene in the Gospel. Jesus visited someone’s house, and wasn’t treated with the proper social graces. This was so egregious, He pointed it out to the host.
“And turning to the woman, He said unto Simon: Do you see this woman? I entered into your house, you gave Me no water for My feet; but she with tears has washed My feet, and with her hairs has wiped them. You gave Me no kiss; but she, since she came in, has not ceased to kiss My feet. My head with oil You did not anoint; but she with ointment has anointed My feet” (Lk. 7:44-46).
Now, you have to understand that – in the Holy Land in the first century – receiving someone into your house without observing the proper social customs was almost equivalent to an act of hostility.
And that’s how it appears most people treat Jesus when they receive Holy Communion. A thanksgiving made hastily, and then off to the parking lot.
Truth be told, one Holy Communion should be enough to make anyone a Saint, because it’s God Himself Who’s being received.
But unlike the disciples on the way to Emmaus, most people don’t recognize Him “in the breaking of the bread” (Lk. 24:35).
Because if they did, they would adopt Jesus’ sentiments, and be consumed with working for the salvation of souls.
As Pope Pius XII wrote:
“Because Christ the Head holds such an eminent position, one must not think that He does not require the help of the Body…Yet this, also, must be held, marvelous though it may seem: Christ HAS NEED of His members…Moreover as our Savior does not rule the Church directly in a visible manner, He WILLS to be helped by the members of His Body in carrying out the work of redemption…
“This is a deep mystery, and an inexhaustible subject of meditation, that the salvation of many depends on the prayers and voluntary penances which the members of the Mystical Body of Jesus Christ offer for this intention and on the cooperation of pastors of souls and of the faithful, especially of fathers and mothers of families, a cooperation which they must offer to our Divine Savior as though they were His associates” (Mystici Corporis, #44).
Now there’s a place you can turn to so you can learn how to apply St. Louis de Montfort’s secret for receiving Holy Communion well. And, in turn, to help Jesus in His work of redemption.
And because the Holy Spirit didn’t reveal this secret to most of the Saints, this is truly inside information.
Montfort Father Jean-Marie Texier has pulled everything together for you in 24 chapters in what is arguably the most valuable resource you can have when receiving Holy Communion.
It’s called “Thanksgiving With Mary In The Spirit Of St. Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort”. And it’s specifically designed to draw you deeper into and show you how to apply to Holy Communion what St. Louis calls “a mystery of grace unknown to even the wisest and most spiritual among Christians” (True Devotion, #21).
Fr. Texier was a top expert in St. Louis’ Marian spirituality. He provides information most people couldn’t have and haven’t figured out on their own.
Not only did the Montfort Fathers call him “a remarkable spiritual writer”, they also said: “He loved the Most Blessed Virgin with the heart of a child; he spoke of her with the heart of his Blessed Father (St. Louis de Montfort).”
So you can rest assured you’re getting an authentic explanation of St. Louis de Montfort’s secret.
And he’s held nothing back. You’ll be surprised at how fast your devotion to the Blessed Sacrament takes off.
At the end of each of the 24 chapters, he gives an easy daily practice you can use to help skyrocket your Eucharistic devotion. And each one is short enough to write on an index card or even a Post-it note. That way you can have it with you as a helpful reminder throughout the day.
On the one hand, St. Louis de Montfort says…
“As a counterfeiter does not ordinarily counterfeit anything but gold and silver, or very rarely the other metals, because they are not worth the trouble, so the evil spirit does not for the most part counterfeit the other devotions, but only those to Jesus and Mary, the devotion to Holy Communion, and to our Blessed Lady, because they are, among other devotions, what gold and silver are amongst metals” (True Devotion, #90).
On the other hand, he says…
“The more you allow Mary to act in your Communion, the more Jesus will be glorified” (True Devotion, #273).
And this book makes sure you always have the upper hand against the enemy of mankind, because it shows you how to allow Mary to “take over” when you receive Holy Communion.
As you may know, St. Louis said “where Mary is the devil has never had and never will have access” (Secret, #17).
And when you’re faithful in allowing Mary to “take over” in your Communions, here’s some of the wonders St. Louis says you can expect…
“Experience will teach you much more about this devotion than I can tell you; and if you remain faithful to the little I have taught you, you will find so many rich fruits of grace in this practice that you will be surprised and filled with joy” (Secret, #53).
“This devotion, faithfully practiced, produces many happy effects in the soul. The most important of them all is that it establishes, even here below, Mary’s life in the soul, so that it is no longer the soul that lives, but Mary living in it; for Mary’s life becomes its life. And when, by an unspeakable yet real grace, the Blessed Virgin is Queen in a soul, what wonders does she not work there! She is the worker of great wonders, particularly in our soul, but she works them in secret, in a way unknown to the soul itself, for were it to know, it might destroy the beauty of her works” (Secret, #55).
“Do not think, dear soul, that Mary, the most fruitful of all pure creatures, who has brought forth even a God, remains idle in a faithful soul. She will cause Jesus Christ to live in that soul, and the soul to live in constant union with Jesus Christ” (Secret, #56).
“To sum up, Mary becomes everything to that soul in the service of Jesus Christ. The mind will be enlightened by Mary’s pure faith. The heart will be deepened by Mary’s humility. It will be dilated and inflamed by Mary’s charity; made clean by Mary’s purity; noble and great by her motherly care. But why dwell any longer on this? Only experience can teach the wonders wrought by Mary, wonders so great that neither the wise nor the proud, nor even many of the devout can believe them” (Secret, #57).
Wouldn’t it be nice to experience these wonders?
What’s more, you’ll no longer be moving at a snail’s pace in increasing your devotion to the Blessed Sacrament. That’s why St. Louis promises you…
“By this practice, faithfully observed, you will give Jesus more glory in a month than by any other practice, however difficult, in many years” (True Devotion, #222).
Therefore, if you’re looking for a quick, easy, and effective way to increase your devotion to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, help is finally here.
Think how YOU could benefit from this glimpse into this secret the Holy Spirit didn’t reveal to most of His Saints.
This is the kind of information you read about in “Thanksgiving With Mary In The Spirit Of St. Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort”.
Also, think about what can happen when you don’t have this knowledge.
St. Louis warns…
“Because the devils, who are skillful thieves, wish to surprise us unawares, and to strip us. They watch day and night for the favorable moment. For that end they go round about us incessantly to devour us, and to snatch from us in one moment, by a sin, all that we have gained of graces and of merits for many years.
“Their malice, their experience, their stratagems, and their number, ought to make us fear immensely this misfortune, especially when we see how many persons, fuller of grace than we are, richer in virtues, better founded in experience, and far higher exalted in sanctity, have been surprised, robbed, and unhappily pillaged” (True Devotion, #88).
He’s only echoing Scripture:
“Your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, goes about seeking whom he may devour” (1 Pt. 5:8).
So, you see, even those who were “far higher exalted in sanctity” didn’t fully understand how to take advantage of and protect the graces they’d received in Holy Communion.
Think about the Apostles. They spent three years living with Jesus. They not only witnessed His miracles, but worked miracles themselves.
“And the seventy-two returned with joy, saying: Lord, the devils also are subject to us in Your name” (Lk. 10:17).
Yet, after they made their first Communion at the Last Supper, they all denied Jesus shortly thereafter.
St. Peter, along with St. James and St. John, had heard God the Father speak directly to him on Mt. Thabor. He had even received a personal revelation from the Father: “And Jesus answering, said to him: Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jona: because flesh and blood has not revealed it to you, but My Father who is in heaven” (Mt. 16:17).
Yet, despite these revelations, he denied Jesus more than all the others.
And so, miracles and revelations are no guarantee you won’t abandon Jesus.
In fact, Jesus said not even working miracles is a guarantee of salvation:
“Many will say to Me in that day: Lord, Lord, have not we prophesied in Your name, and cast out devils in Your name, and done many miracles in Your name? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, you that work iniquity” (Mt. 7:22-23).
Let’s face it. When you’re going up against an enemy who’s far smarter than you, who’s an expert at deceiving people, who St. Paul says “transforms himself into an angel of light” (2 Cor. 11:!4), and who has more than 2,000 years’ experience counterfeiting the devotion to Holy Communion, you need every bit of help you can get.
You can see why St. Paul wrote: “Work out your salvation with fear and trembling” (Ph. 2:12).
The devil doesn’t care how much devotion you have to the Blessed Sacrament, as long as he can make you think you have enough to get along with.
Look at the Laodiceans in the Book of the Apocalypse. When St. John wrote to the other six churches, each was always commended for something. But not the Laodiceans.
God said to them: “But because you are lukewarm, and neither cold, nor hot, I will begin to vomit you out of My mouth” (Apoc. 3:16). That’s a nice way of saying, “You make feel like throwing up!” That’s how hopeless their situation appeared.
See, they were neither good nor bad. Neither “hot nor cold”. They are just lukewarm—ordinary. Yet, these people were unaware of their condition. In fact, as the subsequent passages show, they thought that they were doing just fine and “had need of nothing.”
They thought they had enough to get along with.
This makes it crystal clear why St. John wrote: “He that is holy, let him be sanctified still” (Apoc. 22:11).
This book helps you make steady progress.
“Rabbi, where do You stay?” (Jn. 1:38)
After St. John and St. Andrew had this encounter with Jesus, St. Andrew went straight to tell his brother St. Peter.
And the next day, after hearing Jesus speak, Phillip went and told Nathanael.
So, here’s a good benchmark to determine where you are in your devotion to Holy Communion.
When you receive Jesus in Holy Communion, are you excited enough to tell others about Him?
Even the Samaritan woman at the well, who was considered a moral failure by the people in her town, was more than happy to share the good news with them about Jesus. And she hadn’t even received the Eucharist!
If a Samaritan woman of questionable reputation wasn’t afraid of bringing others to Jesus, what about you?
If you truly recognized Jesus “in the breaking of the bread,” you would have a burning desire to bring others to Him.
That’s what your encounter with Jesus should lead you to, and that’s what this book will do for you.
It helps you meet Jesus in a way that you’ll be dying to talk about Him.
And that’s where Mary comes in. Despite everything the Apostles had seen and done before Jesus’ Passion, they still denied Him. But after “persevering in prayer with Mary, the Mother of Jesus” (Acts 1:14), they became fearless.
Before, they were locked away in fear (Jn. 20:19). Now, after praying with Mary, they said: “For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:20).
So, if you’re not experiencing an enthusiasm about leading others to Jesus, that may be an indication that your devotion to Holy Communion isn’t where it needs to be.
Let your willingness to share the good news about Jesus be the benchmark for where your devotion is. Because that’s a characteristic of those who’ve really “met” Jesus.
Jesus said: “I am come to cast fire on the earth; and what will I, but that it be kindled?” (Lk. 12:49).
That’s the same fire the disciples experienced on the way to Emmaus in their encounter with Him, and which Jesus wants you to have: “And they said one to the other: Was not our heart burning within us?” (Lk. 24:32)
This book can make that happen for you.
Because as St. Louis says…
“When the Holy Ghost, her Spouse, has found Mary in a soul, He flies there. He enters there in His fullness; He communicates Himself to that soul abundantly, and to the full extent to which she makes room for her Spouse. Nay, one of the great reasons why the Holy Ghost does not now do startling wonders in our souls is because He does not find there a sufficiently great union with His faithful and inseparable Spouse” (True Devotion, #36).
“When will souls breathe Mary as the body breathes air? When that time comes wonderful things will happen in those lowly places where the Holy Ghost, finding His dear Spouse as it were reproduced in souls, shall come in with abundance, and fill them to overflowing with His gifts, and particularly with the gifts of wisdom, to work the miracles of grace.
“My dear brother, when will that happy time, that age of Mary, come, when souls, losing themselves in the abyss of her interior, shall become living copies of Mary, to love and glorify Jesus? “That time will not come until men shall know and practice this devotion which I am teaching” (True Devotion, #217).
You can be sure this book will lead you to union with Mary, help you become a living copy of Mary, and guarantee you give Jesus the welcome He deserves in Holy Communion, as far as a person can.
Because, as you saw above, the Montfort Fathers said of Fr. Texier: “He loved the Most Blessed Virgin with the heart of a child; he spoke of her with the heart of his Blessed Father (St. Louis de Montfort).”
You’ll discover in this book:
(1) How you can make Mary’s virtues pass into you so that Jesus will delight in you, and love you with the love of predilection, which far surpasses the love of benevolence (ch. 4).
(2) What specific grace to pray for which brings all other graces with it, and which is a guarantee of salvation (ch. 4).
(3) Which Apostle is the best to pray to after Communion and why (ch. 5).
(4) What determines how many graces you receive from Holy Communion. Best part? It’s completely within your control (ch. 8).
(5) The hidden and destructive dangers of one particular thing and how it’s robbing you (ch. 11).
This book shows you how to surrender to Mary. It shows you how to allow to Mary act in your Holy Communions.
