May is Mary's Month (part 2)

"Madonna and Child,"  Taddeo di Bartolo

For centuries, the Church has dedicated the month of May to our Blessed Mother.

The following is taken from "True Devotion to Mary" by St. Louis de Montfort:

"The Ave Maria said well, that is to say, with attention, devotion and modesty is, according to the saints, the enemy of the devil, which puts him to flight, and the hammer that crushes him, the sanctification of the soul, the joy of angels, the melody of the predestined, the Canticle of the New Testament, the pleasure of Mary and the glory of the Most Holy Trinity."

Holy Mother of God, pray for us.
