Pope celebrates end of Marian month in Vatican Gardens

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Saturday evening concluded the Month of Mary in the Vatican Gardens. A procession led by Cardinal Angelo Comastri went from the church of St. Stephen of the Abyssinians to the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes. It was there that Pope Francis greeted the faithful.

"Mary 'went in haste' to her elderly cousin Elizabeth. She wasted no time, immediately went to serve," Pope Francis said. "And 'the Virgin of readiness' is now ready to help us when we pray, when we ask for her help and protection."

Pope Francis said in the "very many" moments of life in which we need help, the Madonna does not wait, and is immediate ready to serve.
