Our Lady's Month

The Month of May is traditionally known as the Month of Our Lady. Since Medieval times (1200's) this month has been associated with The Blessed Virgin Mary. In later times, during the 1700's on each day of this month, special devotions to Mary were organised. The custom originated in Italy and spread widely later during the 19th century, a century well known for its monthly devotions. To honour Mary, usually one pays a visit to one of her Shrines, or you can set up a May altar in your home, or pray the Rosary more frequently or have some extra devotion to Our Lady.
Hail Mary, full of grace, The Lord is with you, Blessed are you among women and Blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus..
