Loius de Montfort was born to a poor family in 1673 at Montfort-La-Carme in Britanny.  Ordained at the age of 27, he was deeply devoted to the Blessed Virgin Mary, as exemplified by his book, “The Secret of the Rosary”, the first work to describe the method by which the rosary is prayed.  He founded a missionary group of men (Company of Mary) and a religious institute of women devoted to the poor (Congregation of the Daughters of Wisdom).
