Tota Pulchra es Maria

“Thou art all beautiful O Mary, and the stain of original sin is not in Thee…”

Such is the opening sentence of the beautiful fourth century Latin prayer to the great Mother of God. Likewise, the first half of the sentence above marks the title of this handy prayer book that contains a comprehensive
list of beautiful prayers to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
It is true that no human words can adequately express the immaculate purity and admirable humility of our loving Mother Mary. That being said, the more frequently one attempts to know his or her Heavenly Mother, the easier it
is to gradually contemplate and to know Her, the Mother of Our Lord Jesus Christ. This is because Our Lady often dispenses the graces entrusted to Her by God to us sinners the more we commend ourselves to Her. It is on this premise
that this book has compiled the list of timeless prayers together in order to facilitate the devotions of Catholic faithful and help them in their road to sanctity. Little wonder that St. Maximilian Maria Kolbe, the great Marian saint
of the twentieth century, articulated the devotion to Mary’s Immaculate Heart as such, “Directly from Her Heart , you shall draw more knowledge with regard to her and shall be set ablaze with love of Her, much more than any
human word could possibly teach you.”
