On Friday, May 1, the bishops of Canada and the United States will be reconsecrating their respective nations to the care and protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary, in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Both Bishops’ Conferences have announced that their countries will be reconsecrated to our Lady under the title “Mary, Mother of the Church”.

Each year, during the month of May, the Church seeks the special intercession of the Mother of God. The Pope highlighted this in a letter that he sent to all the faithful last Friday, calling for renewed Marian devotion.
