A month dedicated to Blessed Virgin Mary: The tradition of dedicating the month of May to Our Lady is centuries old, dating back at least 700 years. Blessed Pope Paul VI wrote an encyclical on the month of May, focusing on the Virgin Mary “We are delighted and consoled by this pious custom associated with the month of May, which pays honor to the Blessed Virgin and brings such rich benefits to the Christian people. Since Mary is right to be regarded as the way by which we are led to Christ, the person who encounters Mary cannot help but encounter Christ likewise”. The Blessed Virgin Mary offered the disciples her prayers, motherly care, and witness. She continues to offer us her motherly love and intercession. During May, let us rediscover her maternal role in each of our lives. Let us offer our spiritual mother our sincere prayers, that just as she aided the first Apostles with her prayers, she may also guide and intercede for us in our journey of faith. Let us learn from her how to love and trust God completely and how to be faithful witnesses of the risen Lord.
Happy Mothers Day: George Washington once said, "My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual, and physical education I received from her." Motherhood is a very high calling. What relationship can ever replace the love of a mother and a grandmother? The love, guidance, and influence mothers provide to their children are distinct and invaluable. Divorce, separation, single moms, widows, mothers forced to work out of necessity, grandmothers raising grandchildren, prodigal children, and prodigal grandchildren, are realities that cause deep, daily suffering for many women. Added to all these sufferings, is the pain endured by many married women who would like to be mothers. All mothers and grandmothers need to find in Mary, our Blessed Mother, the faith, hope, love, and fortitude to stand firm at the foot of the cross. All suffering has power when we unite our suffering to the cross of Jesus. On this Mother’s Day, I wish all our mothers and grandmothers happiness and joy. Thanks for all that you are. May the Lord continue to grant you good health of mind and body. This year I am fortunate to be with my mother on this day. I will make sure to give her a flower on that day and a gift as well ha-ha. Happy Mother’s Day.

Passion for Golf: A man was passionate about golf. One day he and his wife walked into the office of the dentist. He said to the doctor– Doc, “I am in one heck of a hurry. I have two buddies out in my car waiting for us to go play golf, so forget about the anesthetic. I don’t have time to wait for the gums to get numb. I just want you to pull the tooth and be done with it. We have a 10 am tee time at the best golf course in town and its 9: 30 already.” The dentist thought, my goodness, what a brave guy, asking to have his tooth pulled with nothing to kill the pain. So, he asked “Which tooth is it, sir?” The man turned to his wife and said.” Open your mouth, honey, and show him.”
