Preparing a May Altar in your home

In these last few days of April we invite you to begin to prepare a May altar in your home following an old tradition of honouring the Blessed Virgin in homes during the month of May.
What do we need?
create a space – a small table, shelf area, bookcase
a cloth white or blue
a statue or image of the Blessed Virgin Mary
candle
flowers will be added on Friday 1st May – look in the garden or near your home
Then each day of May pause to pray alone or together at your Mary’s protection and intercession in these times…
