Mary, our Protectress

Is it any wonder that satan hates Mary?  Likewise is it any wonder that satan hates anyone devoted to the Mother of God?  He hates that soul for which Mary can obtain so much – eternal life.  We can understand how the great saints were tormented by him in an attempt to deter them from progressing in the Immaculate Way of Mary.  He attacked them in many ways.  He stirred up opposition to them from all quarters, even perhaps at times, from good people in the Church itself.  This was his attempt to stir up pride by inciting them to disobey the lawful authority of the Church.

Yet when we read the lives of the saints we can notice with great confidence that Our Blessed Lady always prevented their falling by the great graces that she gave them.

St. Louis-Marie de Montfort always obeyed without hesitation or comment the commands of his ecclesiastical superiors, even when they were manifestly unjust.

The Immaculate Way
