November is the month of Holy Souls--part of the Communion of Saints. Throughout the month, the Church's tradition holds that we pray for our deceased relatives and friends. "Remember me, O my God, for good." Nehemiah 13:31
The month of October is dedicated to the Holy Rosary. "Today, when dangers far greater than those of the ancient Turks threaten not only Christianity but all civilization, we are urged by our Blessed Mother to turn again to the Rosary for help. If men in sufficient numbers do this, and at the same time carry out the other conditions that she has laid down, we have the greater reason for confidence that we will be delivered from our dangers." -- Mary in our Life by Fr. William G. Most
For Catholics, September is the month of Our Lady of Sorrows, immediately following August's devotion to the Immaculate Heart, and preceding October's devotion to Our Lady of the Rosary. September is an ideal time to strengthen our connection to Our Blessed Mother.
The month of August is traditionally dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Since the 16th Century, Catholic piety has assigned entire months to special devotions. The physical heart of Mary is venerated (and not adored as the Sacred Heart of Jesus is) because it is united to her person and is the seat of her love (especially for her divine Son), virtue and inner life. O Mary Immaculate, inflame our hearts with one ray of the burning love of thy pure heart.

The Month of June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart. The Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus on the Friday following the second Sunday after Pentecost. In addition to the liturgical celebration, many devotional exercises are connected with the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Of all devotions, devotion to the Sacred Heart was, and remains, one of the most widespread and popular in the Church. Behold this Heart which has loved men so much, and yet men do not want to love Me in return. Through you My divine Heart wishes to spread its love everywhere on earth."- Jesus to Saint Margaret Mary
