In December 2016, Pope Francis accelerated a process to proclaim St. John Eudes a Doctor of the Church. In a few years he may be christened "Doctor Cordis" (the Doctor of the Heart), using the title given him by Pope St. Pius X: "the Father, Doctor, and Apostle of Devotion to the Hearts of Jesus & Mary."
This series is an introduction to his spirituality, widely available in English for virtually the first time.
This little volume gives Scriptural meditations on the traditional Rosary mysteries, but it doesn't stop there. St. John Eudes offers us a unique set of Rosary meditations to honor the Liturgical seasons of the year, as well as other sets prayers to be said with a 34-bead chaplet.

About the Author
Born during France's "Golden Age of Saints" in the 17th century, he took part in a wave of new evangelization in France alongside Sts. Francis de Sales, Vincent de Paul, Margaret Mary Alacoque, and many others.
He founded lasting institutions like The Congregation of Jesus and Mary (the Eudists) to train priests in seminaries and continue his work of evangelization; the Sisters of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd (the Good Shepherd Sisters) to care for repentant prostitutes and other victims of human trafficking); and he left his mark on many other orders like the Little Sisters of the Poor, and Mother Antonia Brenner's Eudist Servants of the 11th Hour.
