May 26, 2024 – The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

May is the Month of Mary

For May, give Mary a special spot in your prayer corner. It can be a statue or picture, but place there some representation of our Blessed Mother. Make it appealing and a real tribute to her beauty and virtue.  Then, crown Mary. You can give her an actual or spiritual crown and you can make it a subtle gesture or ornate ceremony of your own device. The meaning is far more important than the action. You can do it in the beginning, at the end of May or anywhere in between.  Not because it’s a long-standing tradition in the Church, although it is. Not because there are any special graces connected to it, although there is.  No, do it because Mary is Mother – your mother, my mother, everyone’s mother – and because she cares for all of us day-in-and-day-out without fail, interceding for us in even the tiniest matters.  For that, she deserves an entire month in her honor.

Families and the Gospel    Matthew 28:16-20

In today’s gospel Jesus commands, “Teach them to carry out everything I have commanded you.”  This command is meant for every Christian.  In light of the command, parenting is not only the most difficult task a person can take on, it is also one of the most apostolic and missionary tasks.  Jesus commands all parents to teach their children “all that I have commanded you.
