May is the Month of Mary

In honor of the month of May being the Month of Our Lady, i will try to post a quote pertaining to the Blessed Mother every day during this month.
Queen of Heaven, Conceived without sin, Pray for us who have recourse to thee!

The month of May is ... a month which the piety of the faithful has long dedicated to Mary, the Mother of God. Our heart rejoices at the thought of the moving tribute of faith and love which will soon be paid to the Queen of heaven in every corner of the earth.
For this is the month during which Christians, in their churches and their homes, offer the Virgin Mother more fervent and loving acts of homage and veneration: and, it is the month in which a greater abundance of God's merciful gifts comes down to us from our Mother's throne.
~ Pope Paul VI, Mense Maio (On Prayers during May for the Preservation of Peace)
