Pope Benedict XVI Closes the Month of Mary with a blessing

Yesterday was the last day of May and consequently the last day of the Month of Mary. So, Pope Benedict XVI gave a blessing yesterday at the Lourdes Grotto in the Vatican Gardens. This representation of Lourdes, France, refers to the 18 apparitions of Mary there in 1858 to St. Bernadette.

While the month of Mary has ended, our devotion to Mary should not end. Mary remains the Virgin Mother of God. And, as we see through the Wedding of Cana, her intercession is very powerful. Pray for Mary's intercession especially through the Rosary and many favors will certainly be granted to those who seek Our Lord's graces and mercy.
