You are the Mother of all Good Counsel; Guide and Protect Us Your Faithful Ones

The month of May has historically been devoted to the Blessed Virgin Mary in our Roman Catholic tradition. May processions, crownings, and other traditions occur in parishes, schools, and institutions throughout the world—all celebrating Mary, the Mother of God. Every Catholic has a particular devotion or patronage of Mary that is a favorite. Sometimes it is a regional devotion of a particular area, other times it is a title of a local parish or school named in her honor. Cultural devotions play a large role in passing on devotions to Mary through generations. Our Lady of Grace; Our Mother of Consolation; Our Lady, Star of the Sea; Mary, Queen of Peace; Our Lady of Guadalupe; Our Lady of Mt. Carmel; Queen of Heaven; Our Lady of the Rosary; Our Lady of Czestochowa; Queen of the Apostles; Notre Dame; Mater Dolorosa are just some of the many patronages and titles of the Blessed Mother.  Read More
