The Month of May

This month might be regarded as the springtime of the liturgical year. A “sacramental spectrum” seems to grace this month. The month of May is dedicated to Mary, our spiritual mother. Last Sunday, we honored our living and deceased mothers. A good deal of vocation literature has been made available. Our readings since Easter have been taken from the Acts of the Apostles which relates the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. Acts is often called the Gospel of the Holy Spirit. Passages in it remind us of people being baptized. Last week, we also had the Pro-Life carnation sale which reminds us of the sanctity of human life and indirectly of the sacraments of marriage and baptism. Last Saturday, we celebrated First Holy Communion. The Holy Eucharist is the sacrament to which the other sacraments are directed. On the last Monday of the month, we will celebrate Memorial Day honoring our beloved departed. Thanks to the many sacrifices of veterans, we are able to have the religious freedom to celebrate the Holy Eucharist in peace. The month of May really illustrates the inner connectedness of the sacraments.
