Fr. Hugh Gillespie SMM, is a Roman Catholic Priest and Missionary belonging to the Company of Mary, the religious community founded by St. Louis de Montfort himself. He is the managing editor for Montfort Publications and an itinerant mission preacher and retreat master. Fr. Hugh is the author of the popular book Preparation for Consecration to Jesus through Mary According to St. Louis De Montfort.
St. Louis de Montfort burned with a deep and genuine vocational zeal for the renewal of the Church through the vigorous proclamation of the Gospel. For Fr. de Montfort the secret of effective proclamation of the Gospel and the secret of authentic living of the Gospel are one and the same, and the name of this secret is Mary. He was so convinced of this that he devoted all of the energy of his vocational life to living and proclaiming a true devotion to Our Lady as the most powerful and direct means of becoming fully mature in the Spirit of Jesus Christ. To share this mission, to live this spirituality and to continue this work he founded the Company of Mary. As a member of this Company, Fr. Hugh Gilespie will share with us his insights and those of St. Louis de Montfort so that we can more effectively love Jesus with the Heart of Mary.
