Happy Mother's Day, Blessed Mother!

These songs bring back beautiful memories of the traditional May processions so common in my youth. You can participate in your own May crowning by weaving a real or silk crown of Mary for a statue in your home or just crown her in your imagination. Thank you, Mary, for watching over and caring for us and leading us to your Son, Jesus. Help each of us to become more and more conformed to His Holy Will and to love Him with our entire heart, soul, mind, and strength. Help us to serve our neighbors as you did in the little town of Nazareth.

Thanks, Mary Ann. These songs took be back to May Processions from long ago. It got me wondering when we stopped having May Processions. I think it must have been around 1970?? I taught in a Catholic elementary school in 1972, and I don't recall having them then.

You seem to be in a nostalgic mood today...
