Why is May the Month of The Blessed Virgin Mary?
Michael Page LLM
Traditionally May is Mary’s month, yes, a whole month, not just a day when particular devotions to her are encouraged. The idea of a month dedicated specifically to Mary can be traced back to medieval times and through many cultures.
I think that we could make space in our prayer lives to honour Mary as she is the perfect example of having faith in God’s promises. We should try to respond when God asks us to do something for him and have faith that it will all work out well in the end. Jesus showed the same level of trust and commitment and gave up his life when asked by his Father. Je-
Hail Mary, full of grace,
The Lord is with Thee;
Blessed art thou among women,
And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners, Now and at the hour of our death. Amen
