Excerpt from The New Month of Mary, or Reflections for Each Day of the Month: On the Different Titles Applied to the Holy Mother of God in the Litany of Loretto; Principally Designed for the Month of May
The devotion of the faithful towards the Mother of God has inspired them to consecrate the month of May in a special manner to her honor. This pious practice originated in Italy; and the month of May was selected in preference to any other, from a wish to change a season of dissipation and amuse ment into one of instruction and devotion. From Italy it passed into France, and other countries of Europe, where it has been found productive of the most beneficial results. Within the last few years, it has been intro duced into the United States, and has been practised by numbers of the faithful servants of Mary, who eagerly profit by this opportun ity of testifying their love and gratitude to the Holy Mother of God, and of cultivating the virtues which would assimilate them to this perfect model of Christians.
