Friends of the Rosary,

We joyfully honor the Immaculate Mary during May, not just a day but the entire month, with daily recitation of the Rosary and other devotions.

The Ancient Greeks dedicated May to Artemis, the goddess of fecundity. The Christians improved this practice by honoring the truly Mother of God.

The idea of a month dedicated specifically to Mary is traced back to Baroque times. The custom became widespread during the nineteenth century and remains in practice until today.

Many faithful erect a special altar with a statue or picture of Mary as a reminder. It’s a tribute to her beauty and virtue.

It’s also a standing tradition to crown the statue of Mary — a custom known as May Crowning.

Mary, cause of our joy, is everyone’s mother. She cares for all of us without fail, interceding in even the tiniest matters.

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!

To Jesus through Mary!
