PRAYER: Lady, take into your hands a bouquet of roses of the month of May: accept it, it is my love for God my Lord. From now on, prostrated at the foot of this alter, I promise you, yes, I have resolved to love God with all my affection. My joy is that God who is, is supremely good . . . Without him and outside of him, nothing do I want to love. I want what God wants, I abhor what God abhors; God’s will is my will henceforth: thus I have resolved.
Blessed Francisco Palau OCD founder of the Teresian Carmelite Missionary Sisters, cmt. This veneration consists of offering to Mary the flowers of this beautiful season in representation of her virtues.
