MONTH OF MAY DEDICATED TO MARY
Prayer by the Church was fervently being made to God ( cf. Acts 12: 5)
Our Lady of Soccour – Vatican Basilica
«In response to the Holy Father’s heartfelt wish, the month of May will be dedicated to a “marathon” of prayer, to ask for the end of the pandemic, which has afflicted the world for more than a year now, and to ask for the resumption of social and work activities. Pope Francis wishes to involve all the Shrines around the world in this initiative, so that they may become vehicles of the prayer of the entire Church. The initiative is being conducted in the light of the biblical expression: “Prayer by the Church was fervently being made to God” (Acts 12:5).» (Press release – Pont. Cons. for the New Evangelization)
Let us join this “marathon” through personal and community prayer together with all the people of the world, turning to Mary Mother of Jesus and Mother of humanity. We thus express the strength of people who believe what they ask for.
