Recognizing that in all my busy business, I have not given her proper honor and devotion, through this month...or for some time really.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed are thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
On the first of the month we placed a crown of roses on our statue in the yard, and placed a basket of fresh flowers at her feet. The bright colors catch my attention every time I walk by, or glance through the kitchen window, inviting me to a brief conversation or prayer. Do you have any special traditions to honor our heavenly mother for the month of May?
