May is the month of our Blessed Mother. Pope Francis has asked Catholics to make a special effort in May to pray the rosary. By doing so, we will be united with believers around the world asking for Mary’s intercession in stopping the coronavirus pandemic. Pope Francis also wrote two prayers to Mary that can be recited at the end of the rosary. Click here to see the pope’s letter on the month of May and his prayers. “We fly to your protection, O Holy Mother of God; Do not despise our petitions in our necessities, but deliver us always from every danger, O Glorious and Blessed Virgin.”
May the Lord bless you,
