May ~ Mary's Month

~ May Crowning ~
I teach the First Communion CCD class at our parish.  The First Communion children lead the procession and crown all the statues of Mary at our church - starting in the courtyard with Our Lady of Lourdes...then Our Lady of Fatima....and Our Lady of Grace.  This is a wonderful and lovely Catholic tradition.  We invite all to bring flowers from their gardens.  "O Mary!  We crown thee with blossoms today, Queen of the Angels, Queen of the May."

Fresh roses at the feet of Mary, Our Mother,
 as she holds the child Jesus
