May--the Month of Our Lady
Tomorrow is May 1st--the month of Our Lady. May is such a perfect month to remember our Heavenly Mother. It is blooming with life and God's loving touch.
This is my favorite picture of Mary. It is a painting of Our Lady of the Rosary that I have hanging in a gold oval frame in my living room. There is something so comforting about it. She is so beautiful and serene, in spite of all that she suffered.
I think that is one of the messages of Mary's life. She suffered so much (hence her titles such as Our Lady of Sorrows and Mother of Sorrows.) But her beauty is our human way of portraying her sinless nature. She keeps that inner beauty through all her sufferings, although she was completely human.
