The Saints and the Blessed Virgin Mary


The month of May is called the month of the Blessed Mother. As to this, I must admit I do not know how I will write this one. As there are many ways to pray to our Blessed Mother, there should also be many ways to ponder upon how the Blessed Mother has done so much for us.

As we go along this post, I would like you to ponder upon this thing: Give me a saint who did not practice devotion to Mary.

Saint John Bosco, founder of the Society of Saint Francis de Sales (popularly known as the Salesians, or by their initials SDB) promoted the devotion to Mary, Help of Christians so that people would see what miracles are.

Saint Dominic Savio, a student of Saint John Bosco, whose memorial we celebrate today,  promised to make Jesus and Mary his best friends, and three more.

Saint Dominc de Guzman, founder of the Order of Preachers instituted the Rosary, a favorite prayer of many holy men and women, including Blessed John Paul II, who also added The Mysteries of Light to the Joyful, Sorrowful and Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary.

Saint Francis of Assisi founded the Order of Friars Minor at the Porziuncola, where the basilica of Our Lady of the Angels is now erected.

Louis_de_Montfort

Saint Louis-Marie Grignon de Montfort’s writings have influenced a great number of popes, including the well-loved Blessed Pope John Paul II, Pope Leo XIII (who wrote a record 13 encyclicals on the Rosary), Pope Saint Piux X  who sought to “renew all things in Christ through Mary”, and Pope Pius XII, who canonized Montfort, to name just a few.

The point is not to set statistics on who was Marian or who was not. The matter is about how the Virgin Mother can help us attain holiness.

Let us imitate Mary in her humility in following the example of Christ.

Ave Maria!
