Honoring Mary in May

My little prayer book,The Catholic girl's guide, has a special section for the month of May, and it had a nice list of little ways to honor Our Lady during the month dedicated to her.  I thought you all might like to see some of these ideas and maybe use a few of them yourself!  There are a ton, so I won't post all of them.

  • Rise punctually in the morning, invoking her as the "Morning Star."
  • Say three Glorias in honor of the saints and Doctors who have explained and defended her prerogatives.
  • Gain indulgences for the soul in Purgatory most devoted to the Blessed Virgin in life; offer Mass and communion for this purpose.
  • Perform some act of kindness with inconvenience to yourself.
  • Say three Hail Marys in reparation for the blasphemies uttered against her.
  • Burn a candle before her statue or picture.
  • Shun idleness during the day in imitation of Our Lady at Nazareth.
  • Say a Hail Mary in honor of the Archangel Gabriel, who brought it to earth.
  • Say a Memorare to obtain Mary's help at the hour of death.
  • Keep silence for a short time, and with Mary ponder God's words in your heart.
  • Say a Hail Mary before going to bed, in order to prevent one mortal sin committed during the night.

May Our Lady bless you during her special month!

    1. You're welcome! And no, of course I don't mind if you borrow the list! Go right ahead. :)

  2. Oh! I have that book! I like it very much and am giving it to the young girl I am sponsering for Confirmation!

    1. I know, isn't it great? I got it around the time of my confirmation as well. :)

  3. Father Lascance is great! I always enjoyed his Girl's Guide, and I am currently loving his other work- My Prayer Book. It is filled with lovely prayers and devotions.
    May our Heavenly Mother bless and keep you always~

  4. Hey, Victoria! I just wanted to tell you that I awarded you over at my blog!


Your comments make my day! I read every single one of them, and I'll usually check out my commenters' blogs, if I don't follow them already. I try to reply to my comments, but please don't be offended if I don't make it to yours. Procrastination habits do extend to comment replies, unfortunately.

Of course, courtesy is necessary. I will delete any comments which do not meet my requirements.

Thanks for making the effort to tell me your thoughts!
