St. Louis de Montfort
 
Feast Day: April 28
 
Died in 1716
Canonized in 1947
 
Louis de Montfort, born in 1673 to a poor family, had an early devotion to those who were less fortunate. At the young age of 12, he entered the Jesuit College of St. Thomas Becket in Rennes. There he began to develop his devotion to Mary and his desire to preach.
 
He entered Little Saint-Sulpice, a French school of spirituality, and became the librarian. This gave Louis the opportunity to study most of the available works on spirituality and the Virgin Mary. St. Louis de Montfort is particularly known for his devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary and the practice of praying the Rosary.
 
Upon his ordination in 1700, Louis de Montfort was immediately frustrated with the lack of preaching opportunities so he went to Rome to meet Pope Clement XI. The pope recognized his real preaching vocation and sent him back to France as an apostolic missionary. St. Louis de Montfort’s reputation as a passionate preacher grew and he traveled frequently on preaching missions and composed 20,000 verses of hymns.
St. Louis de Montfort is one of the early writers in the field of Mariology. His most notable works regarding Marian devotions are contained in Secret of the Rosary and True Devotion to Mary. Montfort was also known for the veneration he had toward angels. He often ended his letters with a salutation to the guardian angel of the person to whom he was writing: “I salute your guardian angel.”

Patron Saint of preachers.
