Mornings with Mary: May Crowning

The stunning statue of Our Mother
and her blessed Son was crowned with flowers
by St. Mary Parish first communicants
the weekend before Mother's Day.  Then the following
week, an eighth grade girl
laid a crown of flowers on a
 Blessed Mother statue that stands outdoors.
I cherish that tradition.
I captured this right after Mass
when the altar servers were extinguishing candles.

Queen of heaven, rejoice. Alleluia. The Son whom you were privileged to bear, Alleluia, has risen as he said, Alleluia. Pray to God for us, Alleluia. Rejoice and be glad, Virgin Mary, Alleluia. For the Lord has truly risen, Alleluia. 
Hail, Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blest is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now, 
and at the hour of death.
