Fr. Stehlin quotes extensively from St. John Eudes, Cornelius a Lapide, Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity, St. Maximilian Kolbe, and Lucia of Fatima. This treatise is one of the most succinct and clear explanations of the complete economy of salvation ever penned. The full role of the Immaculata is explored and refined, and its relevance to the world in our time is detailed in an easy to read and understand format. This is militant Catholic theology made simple for this Marian age.
