This chapter focuses on St. Louis–Marie Grigion de Montfort. He was another Breton bard, the heir of Surin and Boudon, and a successor to Père Maunoir in the Brittany missions. Because his life was such an exhibition of the holy folly of the Cross, his biographers unite in classing him with St. Simeons Salos and St. Phillip Neri.

Keywords: holy folly; holy fools; St. Louis–Marie Grigion de Montfort
