May is the month of Mary

May is traditionally the month of Mary.  As we continue to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection we think too of the joy of Mary as she sees the fulfillment of the prophecies written in the Old Testament.  Mary is the one who was full of faith.  She put her complete trust in God who chose her to be the mother of God.  Her life of faith was spent pondering over the events that took place and deepening her understanding of what God wanted from her.  We are presented with a great role model.  At the wedding feast of Cana Mary instructed the servants to ‘do whatever my Son tells you’.  As we continue our journey of faith may we all do whatever Jesus is asking us to do.  Mary is the mother of the Church let us ask her to help us be the Body of Christ in our own community.
