"Cap-de-la-Madeleine was a parish of lukewarm Catholics. Fr. Desilets was going to use the rosary as a weapon to restore the vitality of their faith."
Recorded from October 7th, the Feast of the Holy Rosary, to October 13th, the 100th Anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun - the story of Our Lady of the Cape reveals the gravity of our Heavenly Mother's love for souls and the means she uses to bring her children back to faith in her Son.
About the Author
James Gerard Shaw first visited Our Lady of the Cape as Feature Editor for the British United Press on August 15th, 1948 - the day Isabelle Naud went home from the Blessing of the Sick and rose from the wheel-chair she had been tied to for ten years. In 1950 he succeeded Fr. John Mole, OMI, as editor of Our Lady of the Cape magazine, a position he left in 1953 to devote himself to writing books.
Shaw's unique insight, writing at the height of Marian piety in Canada, and with access to the exhaustive archives at the Cape, reveals many crucial details long forgotten about the extraordinary story of Canada's spiritual heritage ... a careful listen is almost certainly bound to lead the listener to a "Cape Conversion; the aha moment one experiences upon discovering the length, depth and breadth of Heaven's Divinedesign through the founding of Cap-de-la-Madeleine and the story of Our Lady of the Cape."

True Devotion to Mary as never experienced before!
Third image is page 11 from a personally read hard copy for illustrations purposes.
Father Lance Harlow, rector of St. Joseph Co-Cathedral and Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception parishes in Burlington has authored a definitive commentary on St. Louis de Montfort's True Devotion to Mary.
The Echo of Godincorporates Fr. Frederick William Faber’s 19thCentury translation of St. Louis de Montfort’sTrue Devotion. Father Faber remarks that the mystery of true devotion to Jesus through Mary continues to reveal itself even after repeated readings and much study of St. Louis’ work. He states in the preface to his 1862 translation that:
I have translated the whole treatise myself, and have taken great pains with it, and have been scrupulously faithful. At the same time, I would venture to warn the reader that one perusal will be very far from making him master of it. If I may dare to say so, there is a growing feeling of something inspired and supernatural about it, as we go on studying it; and with that we cannot help experiencing, after repeated readings of it, that its novelty never seems to wear off, nor its fullness to be diminished, nor the fresh fragrance and sensible fire of its unction ever to abate.
This book will probably never leave your nightstand or wherever you keep your most precious spiritual resources at hand!
"Anyone who gives a medal, a holy picture or book to another person, has done no more than to inspire a thought for GOD...for many souls are saved in this way, many preserved from error and encouraged in goodness."
