RECITATION OF THE HOLY ROSARY
FOR THE CONCLUSION OF THE MARIAN MONTH OF MAY
WORDS OF POPE FRANCIS
Grotto of Lourdes - Vatican Gardens
Saturday, 31 May 2014
We prayed to Our Lady, we sang her many titles...
Today, at the end of the month of Mary, is the Feast on which we remember her visit to St Elizabeth. The Gospel tells us that, after the annunciation of the Angel, she went in haste, she lost no time, she went immediately out to serve. She is the Virgin of readiness, Our Lady of Readiness. She is ready right away to come to our aid when we pray to her, when we ask for her help, her protection is in our favour. In many of life’s moments when we stand in need of her help, her protection, let us remember that she does not make us wait: she is Our Lady of Readiness, she immediately goes to serve.
