RELIGIOUS FORMATION NEWS
FAMILY FUN WITH MARY
The month of May is when Catholics both in Church and at home, offer up to May honor and veneration.
Try these ideas at home:
Rosary Relay: When praying the Rosary, one person starts a Rosary prayer and the partner picks it up halfway through and finishes it. Praying this way keeps both people focused and enthusiastic.
Shine the shrine: Create a Mary prayer space for the entire month. Frame a picture of Mary (either download from the Internet or drawn by hand) and place it in a central place in the home. Keep fresh flowers in a glass or vase next to it. Every day during May, pray your Rosary, Memorare, or Litany before the picture as a special Mary devotion.
Add a dash of blessing to Grace: Throughout the month of May, tack on a simple request for her blessing to your mealtime grace. “Mother Mary pray for us,” can follow just about any prayer you come up with and keep her fresh in your mind during May.
