Overview

The Mother of the Saviour is not just another pious book about Mary, but perhaps the finest summation of the Catholic Church's teaching about the Mother of God ever penned-especially because it is written by a pre-eminent authority, with brevity, economy and absence of novelty or speculation or "merely metaphorical expressions."
  From the pen of one of the 20th century's greatest theologians, the book is suffused with the spirit of faith inspired by love begotten of sanctity. It is aimed at increasing in us our love for and devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary by teaching us more about her. Thus, it is primarily theological and educational-in the conviction that it is only by increased knowledge of Mary that we will grow to love her more.

Addressed in This Work:
• The role of Mary and the graces given her as the Mother of God.
• How she is the Mother of all men, collectively as well as individually.
• Her role as Co-Redemptrix of all men.
• Her power of intercession for us in the distribution of all graces.
• Her Queenship of Heaven and Earth and the honor of hyperdulia we pay her.
• How True Devotion to Mary is such a certain means of sanctification.
• Why the human race should be consecrated to Mary to obtain peace for the world.

In total, he authored over five hundred books and articles, and wrote as a thorough Thomist. Among Father Garrigou-Lagrange s numerous works are The Three Ages of the Interior Life, Christian Perfection and Contemplation, Christ the Savior, and God, His Existence and Nature. He died in 1964.
