May devotions to Mary

May devotions to the Blessed Virgin Mary refer to special Marian devotions,  such as praying the rosary, that are held in the Catholic Church during the month of May honoring the Virgin Mary as "the Queen of May".  

Pope Francis has made a request for the faithful to pray the Rosary,  for the end of the Coronavirus,  each day during the month of May.

Prayer for an end to the Coronavirus Pandemic
O Mary, full of grace, Patroness of this nation and Mother of the Church, in this time of illness and worldwide need we seek your intercession for the human family before your Sons throne of grace and mercy. 

We ask for strength in adversity, health in weakness, and comfort in sorrow. Help us, O Blessed Mother, to be filled with confidence and trust in the tender compassion of our God. Let us not be afraid, like our own Saint Marianne Cope, who entrusted her life and ministry among the outcasts of society into the care of our Divine Physician. 

Continue to watch over all who are sick as well as those who care for them and give wisdom to all who are seeking a cure. We ask this through Christ, our Lord.
