Celebrate Mary’s Month



For centuries, May has traditionally been celebrated as Mary’s month; and in the northern hemisphere, with the blossoming of spring flowers, that means May crowning ceremonies or perhaps freshening up your home prayer table with fresh-cut flowers and a statue of Mary.

Another way to celebrate May as Mary’s month is to recite the rosary as a family every day for the month; of course, Peanut Butter & Grace offers the Illuminated Rosary to make doing the family rosary easy. If you want to make a smaller commitment, try praying one decade of the rosary—the Coronation of Mary.
