Getting Ready for May

May: A Time of Abundant Gifts

In the Encyclical of Pope Paul VI (Mense Maio) on prayers during May he so beautifully describes how the month of May is a time “long dedicated to Mary, the Mother of God. Our heart rejoices at the thought of the moving tribute of faith and love which will soon be paid to the Queen of Heaven in every corner of the earth. For this is the month during which Christians, in their churches and their homes, offer the Virgin Mother more fervent and loving acts of homage and veneration; and it is the month in which a greater abundance of God’s merciful gifts comes down to us from our Mother’s throne.”

Yet, in this month in which we are told of the abundance of gifts available to us there is also an urge to return such mercy with gifts of our own offered up to a Mother who loves us.  We should not worry about this special focus on Mary.  Pope Paul VI explains,  “Since Mary is rightly to be regarded as the way by which we are led to Christ, the person who encounters Mary cannot help but encounter Christ likewise. For what other reason do we continually turn to Mary except to seek the Christ in her arms, to seek our Savior in her, through her, and with her?” (Mense Maio)

Here are some ideas to help make May extra special:
1) Hold a May Crowning before a Children’s Rosary in May.  
Step by Step instructions are available HERE on how to plan it!
2) Invite the children to make Mother’s Day cards for Our Blessed Mother to bring to their Children’s Rosary in May.  As you see above in the picture, the children placed handmade cards before Our Lady as they prayed the Rosary.
3) Ask permission from your Pastor to have the children give out Rosaries after weekend Masses one weekend in May.  Free Rosaries can be obtained from Holy Cross Family Ministries (payment for postage is required). 

As we enter into May, I humbly ask for special prayers for all those who have been preparing to hold their first Children’s Rosary group during this special month dedicated to Our Blessed Mother.  I also ask for prayers for all the existing groups that Our Lord will bless them and assist them in their efforts to bring children together in prayer of the Rosary.

    My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of
    the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am
    worried about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    You really make it seem really easy with your presentation but
    I to find this matter to be actually one thing
    which I believe I’d never understand. It kind of feels too complex and extremely extensive for me.

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful
    lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it
    out better?

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and
    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
