Have you ever found yourself noticing that someone phrased something in an unexpected way and wondering if everything was on the up-and-up? I have. And especially in Catholic circles in the 70's and 80's changes of phraseology sometimes did mean that the speaker or writer was attempting to reinterpret (or even replace) a concept that he or she didn't quite approve of. Maybe that was the writer's experience, too.
Thankfully, there is nothing like that going on with us (or with me since I prepared the series!).
In each "Minute a Day for the Month of May," Our Lady is most frequently called by her name, and by a few titles: Queen of Apostles, Mother of the Good Shepherd, Our Lady of the Rosary, Our Lady of Fatima. It is not necessary to always speak of Our Lady in a comprehensive way. We can call out to her in many ways, because she is our mother.
Most of the reflections for the month of May are drawn from the writings of our Founder, Blessed James Alberione. He refers to Our Lady most often by name or as "Queen of Apostles." Blessed James was one of the Blessed Mother's great devotees of the 20th century, and perhaps ranks with the greatest Marian devotees of all time, so we can be confident in following his example.
If you signed up for our daily May message, I hope you will find the reflections, prayers, music and art inspiring, even if they do not always refer to the Blessed Mother in the way that you yourself usually do. Thankfully, our Mother Mary knows the sound of her children's voices in whatever way we call upon her!
