"Today, May ends. A month dedicated to the veneration of the Blessed Virgin. Today the parish of Jerusalem and other parishes have joined in prayer. Several initiatives were undertaken during this special month: one tradition among the most observed, is that of dressing young girls as the Madonna. "

"My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour".
The words resounded throughout the month of May, to express love for Our Lady.

"I implore the Holy Virgin to intercede for us, in order to sow seeds of justice and peace for the Holy Land. May the Virgin grant us love, mercy and assistance ".

At the end of the celebration all the participants followed in procession with the image of Our Lady on the streets of the Old City in an atmosphere of faith and great devotion. Finally, the Apostolic Administrator gave his solemn blessing.
