For those of you who were not able to attend May Crowning last weekend, you missed a beautiful ceremony. The kids reverently honored our Blessed Mother in a very touching ceremony. Thank you to the children who participated in the May Crowning ceremony. Thank you also to Alisha Friederick and Kevin Koester for the beautiful music they provided for the ceremony and Mass. Thank you to Shirley Devlin of Hometown Florist for the radiant flowers that surrounded the statue of Mary.
Each one of us can honor our Blessed Mother in a special way this month. For us it should not be a month like any other. Let us find special ways to show our love to Mary during the month of May: by praying the rosary every day, by offering some fresh flowers to her statue in the church, by saying the Angelus every day at noon, or by reading a book dedicated to her. I am sure you can come up with other great ideas. Remember: she is our mother too. This weekend we honor our mothers. Let us not forget our Mother in Heaven. She loves each one of us and listens to our prayers. Let us show her the same love we show our own mother on earth.
On another note, since we are already in the planting season, if anyone wants to call God’s blessing on his farm and fields, please call me at (608) 448-6061 or the office to arrange a visit. I will be delighted to visit your farm and bless it.
I wish all moms a very happy and blessed Mother Day weekend!
