Marian Feast Days of May

My Friends,
During the Month of May, often and most specially called “The Month of Mary” let us devote some special time to be with her. In her presence we are always brought to her Son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our Blessed Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary is the Mother of the Church and an example and an inspiration for all of us.

Mother of Mercy
O Mary, Mother of Mercy, watch over all people, that the Cross of Christ may not be emptied of its power that man may not stray from the path of the good or become blind to sin, but may put his hope ever more fully in God who is “rich in mercy.” May he carry out the good works prepared by God beforehand and so live completely “for the praise of his glory.” ~Pope John Paul II
