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, Mother’s 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 Mother’s 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 Jarvis’s own mother. In 1910, the governor of Oklahoma issued the first Mother’s 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 Mother’s Day. Anna Jarvis died, disillusioned that her religious efforts had become almost entirely secular and commercial.
The Crowning of Mary takes place during the  10:30 AM Holy Mass - today, May 3rd. Every morning during the month of May; after the 8:00 AM Holy Mass, we will recite the Litany to the Blessed Virgin Mary, followed by Benediction. 

Text Box: Sunday Scripture 
       Jesus our Shepherd, will guide us and protect us in our daily lives. Being a follower of Jesus in our society often requires a great deal of courage. Fortunately, the Shepherd we follow loves us, watches over us and guides us in our daily activities. Jesus, our Savior and our Good Shepherd, offers us not only eternal life, but the help and blessings we need here on earth to be obedient to God’s will for us.
        In the first reading, we hear of the tremendous courage and commitment of the early disciples. Scattered by persecution, they proclaimed the Gospel of Jesus in many lands. In the Gospel, Jesus tells his questioners that his works testify to the fact that he is the Son of God. Jesus teaches that his sheep hear his voice and follow him.
