June 02, 2014
On the evening of May 31, Cardinal Angelo Comastri, the archpriest of St. Peter’s Basilica, led the annual Vatican procession to conclude the month of May, which is dedicated to Our Lady.
Following the recitation of the Rosary, Pope Francis told participants that “Mary ‘went in haste’ to her elderly cousin Elizabeth. She wasted no time, immediately went to serve."
“And the ‘Virgin of readiness’ is now ready to help us when we pray, when we ask for her help and protection,” he added.
