The month of May is traditionally dedicated to Mary in many cultures. May is considered the season of the beginning of new life. Two Marian liturgical celebrations are commemorated in May. When Ascension falls in May, the Saturday after the Ascension of Our Lord is traditionally celebrated as the Feast of Our Lady, Queen of the Apostles. The liturgy commemorates the period of time after the Ascension when the apostles were gathered in prayer with Mary and the women in the Upper Room.

May is the month of promise and of hope. It is the month that begins and heralds in the summer. May is the month, if not of fulfillment, at least of promise; and is not this the very aspect in which we most suitably regard the Blessed Virgin? She was the sure promise of the coming Savior. – Venerable John Henry Cardinal Newman
