May:  Marys Month


May is traditionally the month dedicated to the Mother of God. She holds special significance for us during this Jubilee Year of Mercy because through her willingness to bear the Christ child, God became "visible" in a particular way as the Father who is rich in mercy.


Pope Saint John Paul II, in his encyclical Dives in Misericordia (Rich in Mercy), calls Jesus the incarnation of mercy.


No one has ever seen God, Saint John tells us. [Jn. 1:18]. But by virtue of Marys motherhood, God is made known to us by Christ,

 and known above all in his relationship of love for humanity.


Mary spoke some very heart-warming words during her visit to her cousin, Elizabeth: "His mercy is from generation to generation."

Heart-warming words because Gods mercy continues to be revealed in her and through herright down to us today.


Mary obtained mercy in an exceptional way, as no other person has. She, then, has the deepest knowledge of the mystery of

God's mercy.

Our prayer today:

       Mary, Mother of Mercy, we thank you for your share in revealing God's mercy.

Pray for us now and at the hour of our death.















During the recent conference of clergy of the Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Philadelphia, our clergy favorably embraced the proposal of each priest offering a homily directed at children in every parish at least once during the month of May, 2016.  The priest is to offer the homily regardless of the number of children which might be present.  Parents and grandparents are encouraged to ensure the presence of their children, who will gather around the priest as he speaks with them offering his reflection and teaching.  We are hopeful that such childrens liturgies would become a regular occurrence within all of our parishes.  Please assist and support your pastor in this endeavor.  This is to occur in every parish.  We are grateful for the willingness of our pastors to reach out to the youngest amidst us.


+ Metropolitan-Archbishop Stefan Soroka
