May happens to be her month. The her I’m referring to is our Blessed Mother Mary.
This month of May, I plan on devoting more time to her. Discovering more about the Mother of our Lord. Learning from her, calling out to her, admiring her, imitating her. Getting closer to her, this Mary—full of grace.
How about you? Will you let the force and power of our Blessed Mother, be with you?
St. Louis de Montfort has written:
“The whole world is filled with her glory, and this is especially true of Christian peoples, who have chosen her as guardian and protectress of kingdoms, provinces, dioceses, and towns. Many cathedrals are consecrated to God in her name. There is no church without an altar dedicated to her, no country or region without at least one of her miraculous images where all kinds of afflictions are cured and all sorts of benefits received…”
Our Lady, the Mother of our Lord, my puny little brain can’t comprehend all her glory. All I know is that many, many times I long for her mantle to cover and protect me.
St. Louis de Montfort’s words continue “…There is not a child who does not praise her by lisping a Hail Mary. There is scarcely a sinner, however hardened, who does not possess some spark of confidence in her. The very devils in hell, while fearing her, show her respect.”
As a baby lays its head upon a mother’s chest, I too long to rest myself upon her shoulders and feel the very presence of her grace. I yearn for her to be my protector and defender as I travel through life.
|"From now on, all generations will call me blessed,|
for the Mighty one has done great things for me...
Holy is His name."
Happy month of May—may the force of Blessed Mother Mary be with you!
