Remember that we are still in May, the Month of Mary.
"After Jesus Christ’s ascension to heaven, Mary longed continually with burning desire to be reunited with Him. To be without her divine Son was a very harsh exile. Those years of separation from Him were for her a most slow and painful martyrdom of love that consumed her slowly" ~ St. Padre Pio
