A Message from the Director: Mariathon 2015

banner fr tino

The month of May is the month of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Let us renew our love for Our Lady, by entrusting ourselves to Her, our mother. As a good mother, she leads us to Jesus, her Son. Let us renew our beautiful tradition to pray the Rosary. Through the prayer of the Rosary, we meditate on the mysteries of the life of Jesus and we are inspired to imitate Him by bringing His love and peace to others.

Next week, all 74 Radio Maria’s worldwide on 5 continents, will have the great event of the Mariathon. It is a special moment to renew our zeal and love in our mission of Evangelization and Human formation in the world. Here at Radio Maria USA, beginning on Monday, we are asked to recommit ourselves for this worldwide mission through our prayers and generosity. We will end the Mariathon with the celebration of a worldwide Mass. Our Lady needs us to evangelize. Let us help Her. Thank you for your continued dedication and support.
