MONTH OF MAY -- DEDICATED TO THE BLESSED MOTHER +
Have we embraced Mary as our spiritual mother? Do we pray the rosary? We should remember that the rosary is not simply a long repetitive litany of prayers. When we really ask her to help us reflect deeply on the Mysteries, we discover this ancient prayer as a way of allowing Mary to take us by the hand and walk us into the Scriptures. Praying with the scriptures in which Mary appears is a great way to get to know her personally as the mother who nourishes the gift of divine Life within us.
