Behold the Handmaid of the Lord
Behold the Handmaid of the Lord: a 10-Day Personal Retreat with St. Louis de Montfort's True Devotion to Mary is a spiritually nourishing work. The author, Fr. Edward Looney, does a masterful job of explaining de Montfort's classic treatise in a down-to-earth, highly relatable manner.
Fr. Looney has a lovely way of writing about the Blessed Mother, as this passage indicates:
"From her we learn how to say yes to God's will, how to meditate and to treasure. Her example inspires us toward greater holiness, helping us advance from a mediocre spiritual life to one that is more attuned to God."
This is the type of book you can turn to year in and year out for spiritual sustenance and renewal. It is definitely one of the finest Catholic books I have had the pleasure to read in 2021.
