May is the month we devote to Our Lady, and there are many ways in which we can honour her. One very beautiful custom is to do a pilgrimage to her, using our most powerful weapon; the rosary.
A pilgrimage to Our Lady normally involves the recitation of 3 rosaries. You can choose which mysteries you would like to mediate on for each rosary. Normally the second rosary uses the mysteries of the current day and is said in full (beginning with the Apostle’s Creed and ending with the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary), while the first and third rosaries are only recited with the five decades.
If you are travelling to a nearby shrine, you can do the first rosary on your way there and while at the shrine, recite the second, leaving the third rosary for the journey home. You could also do the same if you have chosen to pilgrimage while taking a walk around your neighbourhood.
If you are staying home to do your pilgrimage, you can simply sit in front of an image of Our Lady, focusing on her. Alternatively, you can choose to visit some Marian sites virtually from the options below.
