Fr. Michael Rennier - Marzena Devoud - published on 05/01/18

Especially honored in May, the greatest artists always turned to Mary for inspiration.

The month of May being dedicated to Mary is a tradition recognized throughout the world by Christians who celebrate it praying the Rosary, bringing flowers at the feet of the statues of Our Lady, and participating in coronation ceremonies during this month. Aleteia invites you to rediscover some of the most beautiful representations of Mary, whether ancient, classical, or modern.
