Fr. Mark Marangone, one of our missionaries in Bogota, Colombia sent a link to a video from Colombia celebrating Our Lady in this month of May through the rosary. I found it deeply human and moving, especially coming from young people. May, the month of Our Lady of the Missions, the Mother of God, is an opportunity to celebrate motherhood worldwide, and in particular, to Mary, our mother.
A lovely alternative to gifting our mothers with flowers, is to honor her with a donation to Catholic Relief Services. Your generous donation will be a celebration of Mom’s love and also help some very vulnerable women, children and men around the world. Please donate now, and you will be able to send this beautiful video greeting card to your mother or whomever you wish. See it here!
