May: Our Blessed Mother

Let us dedicate the month of May to Our Blessed Mother.



Hail, Mary, Mother of God, 
venerable treasure of the whole universe, 
lamp that is never extinguished, 
crown of virginity, 
support of the true faith, 
indestructible temple, 
dwelling of Him whom no place can contain, 
O Mother and Virgin! 
Through you all the holy Gospels 
call blessed the One whom comes 
in the name of the Lord. 

Hail, Mother of God. 
You enclosed under your heart 
the infinite God whom no space can contain. 
Through you the Most Holy Trinity is adored and glorified, 
the priceless cross is venerated throughout the universe. 
Through you the heavens rejoice, 
and the angels and archangels are filled with gladness. 
Through you the demons are banished, 
and the tempter fell from heaven. 
Through you the fallen human race is admitted to heaven. 

Hail, Mother of God. 
Through you kings rule, 
and the only-begotten Son of God has become a star of light 
to those who were sitting in darkness 
and in the shadow of death.
