Join Mary in waiting for the Spirit, Pope tells Sunday audience

Catholic World News - May 10, 2010

At his midday audience on Sunday, May 9, Pope Benedict XVI pointed out that the month of May, dedicated to the Virgin Mary, "always coincides with Easter time, the time of the Hallelujah." Moreover, he added, "it is the time of awaiting the Holy Spirit" as Pentecost approaches.

"When Jesus promised his friends that the Holy Spirit would help them to remember and understand his every word, how can we not think of Mary who, in her heart, that temple of the Spirit, faithfully meditated on and interpreted everything her Son did and said?" the Pope asked. "In this way, before and above all after Easter, the mother of Jesus also became the mother and model of the Church."
