4 YOUTH: The month of May is dedicated to Mary, the Mother of God. Catholics have a long tradition of approaching Mary through a variety of devotions, the most popular of which is the Rosary, in which 50 Hail Mary’s are recited while meditating on the mysteries of the life of Christ. There are many other prayers that we use to ask Mary to intercede on our behalf, such as the Angelus, which recalls the Annunciation and the Incarnation of the Son of God in Mary’s womb. Many devotions have developed over the centuries in honour of Mary under different titles, such as our Lady of Lourdes on Perpetual Help. There are many feast days in the liturgical year devoted to Mary. To learn more about Mary, try watching the video
Mary in 2 minutes by Busted Halo or watch the Rosary in 2 minutes.

REVELATION - CONSOLATION FOR THOSE WHO SUFFER: The visions John is given, during his forced exile on the rocky outcrop of
Patmos, address the real sufferings that he and the Seven Christian Churches he was serving have been enduring. Whereas some members have fallen away or have grown discouraged as a result
of the trials and tribulations the early Church was called to suffer, others are bolstered by the knowledge that theirs are the sufferings of Christ and the way they are called to draw near to him in witness to their faith. John’s vision in chapter 7 speaks of those who have already paid the ultimate price for the sake of Christ and those who will do so from all tribes and nations of the earth, from the beginning to the end of time. Theirs is not a passive death, finally succumbing to the ravages of time or disease, but a glorious death in testimony to their faith. Their celebration overflows with Joy, not in what they have accomplished, but what God has done for them in the gift of his only begotten Son. “They will hunger no more, and thirst no more, the sun will not strike them, nor any scorching heat; for the lamb at the centre of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of the water of life, and God will wipe away
every tear from their eyes”(Rev 7: 16-17) Let us, therefore, draw strength from the lamb who was slain, who shepherds us, in our time of trial and suffering for the sake of the Gospel and in the
active living out of our faith.
MOTHER’S DAY: Today we remember, with gratitude, our mothers who have played such a role, by their love and sacrifice, in seeing us on our way. We also remember those who have gone before us that they may know eternal happiness in the Kingdom of God.
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY
