The month of May: To our mommas and Our Lady

Since 1908, our nation has circled the 2nd Sunday of May on our calendars as Mother’s Day. So, on the 14th of this month, every son and daughter in central Louisiana should find a way to let your momma know how much you love her. For those of us who are living without her presence, we will remember all that she was for us. We will thank God for her and ask the Lord to bless her with light and love.

This Mother’s Day celebration of the gift of our mommas is always at about mid-month. But there’s another remembrance in May, taking up the whole month. In our Catholic culture, May is Mary’s month.
