Highlights from the May issue 

·        May is the month for mothers, so our main article on page one offers the Blessed Mother as the model for mothers. Readers can follow her lead from what we read about her in Scripture.
·        Our main article on page two helps families create a sacred space in their homes in which they can meet God every day.
·        May is also the month in which we honor St. Joseph the Worker. Thoughtful Moments and Feasts & Celebrations offers lessons we can learn from this strong and devoted saint.
·        This month we honor those who died in war on Memorial Day. Our ParentTalk article gives families an idea for honoring our beloved dead.
