Honoring Mary

The month of May has always been associated with the Blessed Mother. We started with the May crowning and we end with another of her feasts, the Visitation of Mary to her cousin Elizabeth. And I share with you today another beautiful image of Mary I discovered on one of our religious vestments here in the Cathedral. It is beautifully and intricately embroidered on a cope, which we use for Benediction and other celebrations. It is similar to another vestment with the image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, which I will share with you next Friday.
These embroidered images were crafted by nuns who spent hours literally painting with thread and needle until the get the desired result, which as you can see is just superb.
