During this special month dedicated to Mary, these words remind us of how much she means to so many people.

As May is the Month of Mary, it’s fitting that we would turn our minds to the Virgin this month. Mary’s grace, courage, and wisdom have stirred Christian hearts for millennia. From a young age, Catholics are taught to think about and revere her. They ask Mary to pray for them when they are scared or need guidance or when they first begin to confess their sins (however minor the sins of little ones may be).

Even for non-Christians, Mary serves as a universal symbol of a mother’s unconditional love and sacrifice. Recently, National Geographic deemed Mary the world’s most powerful woman. She is simply a female role model recognized everywhere.

As you reflect on Mary and motherhood this month, we hope these powerful quotes will inspire you as a woman and a lover of God.
