Text Box: Last week, the second collection for the Catholic Home Mission Appeal amounted to $930.00. This week, the 2nd collection  is for the Parish Development Fund.  Next week, the 2nd collection will be for the  Building Fund.  Special baskets for the Seminary Fund of the Institute of Christ and Sovereign Priest in the back of the church. 

       This month is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. The springtime month of May is popularly devoted to Mary. Statues dedicated to her are showered with bouquets and crowns of flowers. The second Sunday of May, Motherís Day (celebrated in Spain on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, December 8), often takes on Marian nuances. There was an annual Mothering Sunday celebrated in England on the fourth Sunday of Lent, from at least  the 17th century until the early 19th. Our Motherís Day, however, has become a secular observance although it did not begin that way. The tradition began through the efforts of Anna M. Jarvis (1864-1948) with church services in Grafton, West Virginia, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in honor of Anna Jarvisís own mother. In 1910, the governor of Oklahoma issued the first Motherís Day proclamation. The following year all the states did so. Congress and the Executive Office cooperated in 1913 in a national resolution establishing the second Sunday of May as Motherís Day. Anna Jarvis died, disillusioned that her religious efforts had become almost entirely secular and commercial.
       Every weekday mornings during the month of May after the 8:00am Holy Mass, we will recite the Litany to the Blessed Virgin Mary, followed by Benediction.  
ó the month of mary ó 
please pray the 
litany of the bvm with us 
Text Box: Sunday Scripture
	Jesus gives his disciples a new command: to love each other as he has loved them. As Jesus prepares his disciples for the time when he will leave them, he gives them a new commandment. They are to love each other as He loves them. In fact, this will be how people will recognize the disciples of Jesus. And through this kind of love, we allow God to use us to help build up his Kingdom on earth and make all things new.
	Today's first reading tells of the work that Paul and Barnabas did throughout the world, bringing many Gentiles to the faith. In Revelation, we hear about a  vision of God's Kingdom coming in its fullness. In the Gospel, Jesus tells his disciples that he must soon leave them. He gives the command to love one another as he loves them.
