Visitation” with donor portrait, from Altarpiece of the Virgin (St Vaast Altarpiece) by Jacques Daret, c. 1435 (Staatliche Museen, Berlin)

The Catholic Church dedicated the month of May to our Lady, Mary, the Mother of God. St. Pope John Paul II presented her to us as “Woman of the Eucharist.” in the encyclical, Ecclesia de Eucharistia.

One of the many titles in the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary I often ponder on is the “Ark of the Covenant”. In the Old Testament, the Ark of the Covenant is described as God’s footstool inside the Holy of Holy. Mary through the mystery of the incarnation, bear God Himself in her womb.

Let us use this month to renew our love and devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God and our Mother, asking for her intercession so we can imitate her Fiat, and we too one day be united with her Son in the heavenly light.
