This weekend, particularly appropriate on Mother's Day weekend, our homeschooling group had a special Crowning ceremony in the back yard of one of our members. We first shared a bit about Mary and praying the rosary and the importance of having her as our mother in heaven and asking for her intercession with the children.
Next, we prayed the Memorare, and sang O Mary We Crown Thee With Blossoms Today as we placed a flower crown and flowers in a vase for Mary by her statue. Then we prayed The Litany to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Afterwards, while the kids played in the pool, the adults had a chance to catch up on news and enjoy the beautiful day. Much fun was had by all.
