May Crowning 2020

"Sharing the Love of the Heart of Christ"
During this month dedicated to honoring the Blessed Virgin Mary, Cor Jesu Campus Ministry invites you to celebrate our Mother Mary in your homes.  

In the words of Pope Francis:  “Let us invoke Mary’s intercession.  May she help us to be open to God’s surprises, to be faithful to him each and every day, and to praise and thank him, for he is our strength.”

Prayerful Opportunities To Celebrate Mary During May

Create a Place of Honor

In a visible spot make a May altar or put a picture or a statue of Mary, a basket, small pieces of paper, and some pens to write down intentions you & your family want to pray for through Mary’s intercession.  As a family, pray to Mary to answer these petitions.

May Crowning

Have your family honor Mary in a special way by having a family Mary May Crowning service.  Use artificial flowers for Mary’s crown.  You could pray the Hail Mary and/or Hail, Holy Queen to honor Mary in a special way. We invite you to share the May Crowning Video above with your families.

Intentional Rosary

Pray the rosary daily or one decade each day.  Consider writing with special intentions for each bead or each decade, as in this Intentional Rosary template.  

Mary Model of a Grateful Heart

My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.” (Luke 1:46)
