Month of May

Month of May

May is the month of Mary. It’s a time when spring is finally really visible: the trees have a good amount of leaves on them, new flowers are springing up and the weather is noticeably warmer and brighter. All of which is good in a time of lockdown. The Pope and Archbishop have asked us to say the rosary daily, asking Our Lady’s intercession for an end to this pandemic. This month is dedicated to Our Lady because it is a month in which new life starts to break forth from the earth, just as Our Lady brought forth new life to the world with the birth of Christ. Since you can’t get to Church at this time, if you have a statue or a picture of Our Lady in your home, why not make a point of placing a flower before it to honour her and to remind yourself of the special place she has in our own story of salvation.
