Pope Benedict calls Christians to imitate Virgin Mary, be guided by God’s signs

.- As the month traditionally set aside for devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary begins, the Vatican has announced that Pope Benedict XVI’s general prayer intention for the month of May will center on imitation of the woman whom the Church considers the “first Christian.”

The Holy Father’s general intention is that, “following the example of the Virgin Mary, all Christians should allow themselves to be guided by the Word of God and always remain attentive to the signs of the Lord in their own lives."

Similarly, the Pope’s mission intention for May is that “in mission territories there may be no lack of good and enlightened teachers in the major seminaries and in the institutes of consecrated life."
