For people in the Western Hemisphere, May is one of the most beautiful months of the year. Delicate flowers in vibrant pinks, majestic purples and luminous yellows thrive in the late spring sunshine. It’s no surprise that it’s also known by the Catholic Church as the month of Mary. It’s a time when special devotions, prayers, sacrifices and pilgrimages are made in her honor to praise the Holy Trinity and offer thanksgiving and petitions for God’s graces given by her Son through her.
But any month is a good month to meditate on the mysteries of our faith. And although May is an especially good time, every month is a good month to grow as Christians and draw closer to Jesus by learning from Mary. By meditating on holy mysteries, we can learn many things from Blessed Mother. Here are seven of them.
