May 5, 2019: May Crowning after the 10:45AM Mass

In honor of Our Lady, everyone is invited to our very first May Crowning which includes the crowning of Mary with flowers and a Marian Procession right after the 10:45AM Mass on Sunday, May 5th. Our Marian

Procession will begin, with the faithful of all ages carrying flowers and singing Marian hymns along with the recitation of the Holy Rosary in honor of our beloved Mother Mary.

May crownings are a traditional Catholic devotion that honors Mary in her premier title that of the mother of Jesus. The Catechism of the Catholic Church testifies to the foundation of the tradition, which lies securely in the reverence due to the mother of God. As the whole trajectory of the Church is Marian in nature, “Mary goes before us all in the holiness that is the Church’s mystery as “the bride without spot or wrinkle,” it says. “This is why the ‘Marian’ dimension of the Church precedes the ‘Petrine’” (CCC 773).

Mary, in the order of grace, is our advocate, a mediatrix, that is a mediator of grace. She is more present to us in heaven, crowned queen, as she is one with God now. Adorning her with a crown of flowers is custom of great beauty, not as nostalgia, but in our lives, in our own time. This beauty is accessible to all. The observance of May crowning reflects the beauty of the mystery that it evokes. Honoring Mary, crowned Queen of Heaven and Earth, is the fifth mystery of the rosary. We are presenting it physically.
