WORDS FOR LIFE: May 1st 2016 VI SUNDAY OF EASTER
- This Sunday, May starts with its various celebrations: it’s the month of the crosses of May and of our beloved Virgin Mary. Also today is Mother’s Day.
- Christians have great love and affection for Virgin Mary, the Mother of God. This can be seen in the many tiles that decorate the outside of a great deal of houses, in the great number of flowers that are placed near the statue of the Virgin of the Tajo, in the many businesses which carry the name of Carmen, la Purisima…and in the countless number of women who are called Carmen, Rosario, Dolores, Inmaculada, Fatima, Lourdes, Victoria,… and of course Mary.
- May is the month when we approach Jesus through Mary. We place our intentions, actions and thanks at the feet of our most blessed Virgin.
