Our Blessed Mother & The Feast Of The Harvest!

“In the early Church there is evidence of a major feast of the Blessed Virgin
Mary celebrated on the 15th of May each year, but it wasn’t until the 18th
century that May received a particular association with the Virgin Mary.”-St. Patrick’s in Tampa.

May 15 is also known as the Feast of the Harvest. People ask Mary to intercede and still ask Mary to intercede for a good harvest. And whether it be  bad weather, insects or disease, crops are easily ruined. And so many farming families have asked Mary to intercede that their crops will be protected, grow and that a large and good harvest will be had.

Also important to know is that the entire month of May is dedicated by many to Mary. Why? Because Mary was chosen above all other women to be Jesus’s Mother. She knew the road would be so hard, but she was obedient anyway! Her faith in God knew no limits, as did her willingness to obey God no matter what! But perhaps most of all, it was Her willingness to love – no matter the cost that made Her a wonderful Mother for Jesus!

Because Her love for Jesus knew no boundaries and helped to comfort and strengthen Him. Just as Her love comforts and strengthens us.

My own faith is richer and deeper because Mary loves me :). And I will always be so grateful for my relationship with Her.

Pray the Rosary.

For Prayer changes things!
