Consecration to Jesus through Mary as outlined for us by St. Louis De Montfort in his work True Devotion to Mary is the easiest, shortest, most perfect and secure way for us to enter into divine union with God and experience the divine mercy and love He longs to give us through the Sacred Heart of His Son.
And, if that is not enough, true devotion to Mary also produces wondrous effects in our soul that equip us for the battle and challenges we face everyday both in our personal lives and in our culture.
In fact, I don't think it is hyperbole to say that without the gifts that are obtained for us through this devotion, we may not be able to attain the call and mission God has entrusted to us - namely the restoration of the temporal order.
