As a missionary, Louis traveled anywhere and everywhere to bring the love of Mother Mary to people. He wrote several books, including The Secret of the Rosary and True Devotion to Mary. His teachings have endured, and they inspired a young Karol Wojtyla—the future St. Pope John Paul II—to entrust his entire life “to Jesus through Mary.”
