A Spiritual Toolkit for the Marian Month of May

The St. Josemaria Institute is pleased to share this Spiritual Toolkit offering a curated selection of resources to aid your devotion to Our Lady during the month of May.

“If we look at the world, at the People of God, during this month of May, we will see devotion to our Lady taking the form of many old and new customs practiced with great love. It makes me very happy to see that this devotion is always alive, awakening in Christians a supernatural desire to act as ‘members of God’s household.’

See how so many Christians express their affection for the Virgin Mary, surely you also feel more a part of the Church, closer to those brothers and sisters of yours. It is like a family reunion. Grown-up children, whom life has separated, come bak to their mother for some family anniversary. And even if they have not always got on well together, today things are different; they feel united, sharing the same affection” (Christ is Passing By, no. 139).
