The Month of MaryTHE MONTH OF MAY

Within the cycle of a year, the Church unfolds the whole of the mystery of Christ, from his incarnation and birth until his ascension, the day of Pentecost, and the expectation of blessed hope and of the Lord's return.
In celebrating this annual cycle of Christ's mysteries, the Church honours with special love Mary, the Mother of God who is joined by an inseparable bond of saving work of her Son. In her the Church holds up and admires the most excellent effect of the redemption and joyfully contemplates, as in a flawless image, that which the Church itself desires and hopes wholly to be.
