SORROWS OF MARY
The Rosary of the Seven Sorrows of Mary comes with seven wonderful promises:
1. I will grant peace to your families.
2. You will be enlightened about the divine mysteries.
3. I will console you in your pains and I will accompany you in their work.
4. I will give you as much as you ask for as long as it does not oppose the adorable will of my divine Son or the sanctification of your soul.
5. I will defend you in your spiritual battles with the infernal enemy and I will protect you at every instant of your life.
6. I will visibly help you at the moment of your death, you will see the face of your Mother.
7. I have obtained (This Grace) from my divine Son, that you who propagate this devotion to my tears and dolors, will be taken directly from this earthly life to eternal happiness since all your sins will be forgiven and my Son and I will be your eternal consolation and joy.

TRUE DEVOTION TO MARY
Those who want to perfect their devotion to Mary would do well to read St. Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort's TRUE DEVOTION TO MARY, a devotion which consists of consigning into Mary's pure hands all one's works and prayers, in total consecration to Jesus through Mary. Find his book in the Catholic Treasury on THE JESUS PRAYER page or at this link: ST. LOUIS DE MONTFORT'S TREATISE ON TRUE DEVOTION TO MARY
The following website contains the full preparation for consecration to Mary as well as all the prayers and devotions recommended by St. Louis Mary de Montfort.
One prayer which de Montfort recommends on a daily basis for those so consecrated is the "Little Crown of the Virgin Mary." Find it on this link:
A great printable copy of the Little Crown can be found on this website:
LINK: PRINT THE LITTLE CROWN
Faithful Virgin, Mary most pure, set yourself as a seal upon my heart.
Hail, Mary, Daughter of God the Father; Hail, Mary, Mother of God the Son; Hail, Mary, Spouse of the Holy Spirit; Hail, Mary, Temple of the most Holy Trinity; Hail, Mary, my Mistress, my treasure, my joy, Queen of my heart; my Mother, my life, my sweetness, my dearest hope ---- yea, my heart and my soul! I am all thine and all that I have is Thine, O Virgin blessed above all things! Let your soul be in me to magnify the Lord; let your spirit be in me to rejoice in God. Set yourself, O faithful Virgin, as a seal upon my heart, that in you and through you I may be found faithful to God. Receive me, O gracious Virgin, among those whom you love and teach, whom you lead, nourish and protect as your children. Grant that for love of you I may despise all earthly consolations and ever cling to those of Heaven until, through you, His faithful spouse, Jesus Christ your Son be formed in me for the glory of the Father. Amen.
