A Mother for All

Mary is able to turn a simple stable into a home for Jesus,

With poor swaddling clothes and an abundance of love…..

She is the friend who is ever concerned that wine will not be lacking in our lives.

She is the woman whose heart was pierced by a sword and who understands all our pain.

As mother of all, she is a sign of hope for peoples suffering the birth pangs of justice.

She is the missionary who draws near to us and accompanies us throughout life, opening our hearts to faith by her maternal love.

As a true mother, she walks at our side, she shares our struggles and she constantly surrounds us with God’s love.

Pope Francis

May, month of Our Lady: the Blessed Virgin Mary is traditionally the focus of prayer and devotion during May.  Families are encouraged to make a May Altar at home with a statue or image of Our Lady and to ask her intercession in our lives.
