Pope Francis points us to Mary as an ongoing guide to living a merciful life. Mary is the Mother of Mercy "because her entire life was patterned after the presence of mercy made flesh" (Misericordiae Vultus No. 24). From her "yes" to the angel Gabriel at the Annunciation, to a lifetime of discipleship, to her presence at the foot of the cross, Mary is our model in following Jesus in mercy and love. Our Sunday Visitor publications has a wonderful resource to help grow in your faith through the devotion to Mary, month by month. May's focus will be "What is the Message of Fatima? "
