The Covenant with God

St. Louis Marie in all her mission was “to revive the Christian spirit through the renewal of the baptismal promises” (according to her earliest biographer, Joseph Grandet). Grandet added: “And to help them remember their efforts, he had the reform formula printed, and those who could write were asked to sign it” during the special ceremony that was the culmination of the mission. St. Louis Marie spoke of the consecration he proposed in his True Consecration to the Blessed Virgin as a “perfect renewal of the Baptism promise”.

Four copies of this Covenant with God have been preserved. Two of these, showing slight variations, were reproduced in God Alone – The Collected Writings of St. Louis Marie de Montfort.
