First Day of May, First Day of Mary´s Month

It´s May 1.

I am now in Madrid and it´s great to be breathing the air of the birthplace of Opus Dei and of many great things Catholic.

If Mary is the short cut to Jesus, what is the short cut to Mary? I suppose that would be St. Joseph, whose feast we celebrate today, May 1, the first day of Mary´s month.

And how do we deal with Mary? St. Josemaria recommended that we utter piropos, i.e. compliments uttered by gentlemen towards beautiful ladies. You can just imagine the piropos St. Joseph whispered to make her happy!
