Beginning of the Month of Mary
Tomorrow, 1st of May, is the beginning of the Month of Mary.
The Maronite Church has always had a special devotion to the Virgin, as is evidenced by the great number of churches which are dedicated to her both in Lebanon and in our own country.
Mary is always seen in the Maronite liturgy as the Mother of the Lord, the Theotokos. It is because of this unique position that the Maronite Church knows that it can turn to her and seek her intercession with her Son: "O Mother of the Life, petition your divine Son to keep away from us all the effects of evil, to preserve us from all animosity and to strengthen us on our way."
