"Tis the month of our Mother,
the blessed and beautiful days,
when our lips and our spirits,
are glowing with love and with praise.
All hail, to dear Mary,
the guardian of our way,
to the fairest of Queens,
be the fairest of seasons sweet May."
From the hymn, "Tis the Month of our Mother"
As our chaplain has frequently reminded us; honoring, loving, and being consecrated to Mary is not only a good thing, it is an imitation of Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself. This is reason enough to practice this month' devotion with great love. However, God cannot be outdone in generosity, and not only do we get to love Mary as Jesus' Mother, but as ours as well. And what a good Mother she is. Holy Mary, Queen of the May, pray for us!
grace to lead an innocent life,
and may it ever be shielded by
thy patronage. Amen.
