May is such a beautiful month because we honor Mary!
While the month is coming to a close, there is still time to celebrate and honor Our Lady!
Catholic Link and ACI Prensa offer some great tips for honoring Mary this month. However, keep in mind that these are also great tips for any time of the year!
Here’s 8 beautiful ways to honor Mary throughout the month of May:
Tip 1: Put up an Image of Mary
The infographic below suggests that you can “decorate your home, office or workplace with an altar, a statue, a painting or any image of the Virgin Mary.”
Tip 2: Read Bible passages about the Virgin Mary
Tip 3: Pray the Rosary
The image below suggests that “praying the rosary is one of the main prayers of the Church. The Virgin Mary herself taught St. Dominic how to do it.”
Tip 4: Participate in a Marian procession
The infographic below suggests participating in a Marian procession. “Marian processions is a tradition still alive in some countries. It involves walking with an image of Mary and saying Marian prayers and songs.”
Tip 5: Receive the Sacraments
“Make sure you receive the sacraments, especially confession and the Eucharist, where Jesus waits for us with open arms.”
Tip 6: Perform the Works of Mercy
“You can help a pregnant mother in need, or visit a nursing home, where you may find older women who feel lonely or abandoned.”
Tip 7: Evangelize
“It is important to remind others how much the Virgin Mary loves them, and to teach them to pray to the Mother of God.”
Let us honor Mary with all of our hearts!
Tip 8: Give someone a Marian gift
Note: A priest must enroll a person into the Brown Scapular Confraternity in order for the Scapular wearer to receive the scapular’s blessings. Once enrolled, the Scapular-wearer already receives the blessings attached to the Scapular.
Final Note: Remember – to share is to evangelize!
