Why We Honour Mary in May
Last edited 20th May 2015

Since the 16th century Catholics have dedicated each month to a particular devotion. The month of May is dedicated to Mary, Mother of God. Why was May chosen for this devotion?

Fr. Robert Barron on Why the Ascension of Jesus Matters
Last edited 15th May 2015

We tend to read the Ascension along enlightenment lines, as if Christ has gone to a distant, irrelevant place. The biblical reality is this: Jesus, in ascending into heaven, has not gone "up, up, and away." Rather, he has gone to heaven to direct operations more fully here on earth. Jesus has not abandoned earth, but rather, he intends to return in order to bring about the full reconciliation of heaven and earth. In the mean time, he has commissioned his follows to begin that work now... within the Church.

Last edited 13th May 2015

The fresh green of Springtime in the meadows and olive groves contrasted with the vivid red of poppy flowers. The happy voices of three children playing as they watched over their families’ flocks rang out in the clear air.
