‘Mary, Our Refuge in Difficult Times,’ Reminds Pope

Honors Blessed Mother as Her Month Draws to a Close Tomorrow

‘The Virgin Mary is a refuge in difficult times.’

Pope Francis gave this reminder at his weekly General Audience on Wednesday morning, May 30, 2018, in St. Peter’s Square, where he continued his catecheses on Confirmation.

As he does each week, the Pope addressed “a special thought” at the end of the meeting, to young people, the elderly, the sick and new spouses.

“Tomorrow,” he said, “we are concluding the month of Mary.”

“May the Mother of God,” he wished, “be your refuge in times of joy, as well as in difficult times, and may she guide your families so that they cultivate homes of prayer, reciprocal understanding and giving.”
