Father_KarlDear Brothers and Sisters,

The year seems to be flying as we already have reached the month of May. In a few weeks the kids will be on summer vacation. Traditionally May has been the month dedicated to Mary the Mother of Jesus. Our first communion and confirmation children will crown Mary at the 10:00 am Mass a reminder that Mary is the Mother of the church. Every May we try in a special way to honor Mary and to ask her to guide and protect us on our journey of life. Mary as the gospel tell us pondered all the things that God offered to her in her heart. We need to ponder all the things that happen to us on our journey of life in our hearts and like Mary see God working in our lives, challenging us and directing us to greater things. Mary said to the Angel “Behold the handmaid of the Lord Let it be done unto to me according to your word”. She lived out that offering all the days of her live. We are called like her to be sons and daughters of the Lord in our lives. Let us ask Mary during this month of May to help us follow the Lord as she did. Mary pray for us as we journey on the road of life with Christ our Savior.
