May, the month in which the Earth springs into bloom and we start thinking about planting gardens, family picnics and making holiday plans. It’s also the Month of Mary and a busy month in the Salesian calendar. We have a Novena to Mary Help of Christians, books and piety items to honour the Holy Mother.

The Vatican Council reminded us that Morning and Evening Prayer are the two hinges on which the Prayer of the Church turns. The reflection on life, alongside the words of scripture, has been a daily practice in the Church since earliest times. This book continues that tradition, offering a simple form of prayer for individual or communal use at the start of the day.
