Feast of Saint Catherine of Siena, Virgin and Doctor
As we approach the Month of May, dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, we ask that you join with us in a period of intense prayer of the Most Holy Rosary throughout the entire Month, beginning on the Feast of Saint Joseph, The Worker, May 1st, for the Bishops of the United States to commit to a solemn procession of the statue of Our Lady of America into the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception at Washington, D.C., very soon. As we approach the Feast of The Ascension of Our Lord Jesus Christ [May 13, 2010] followed by the Descent of The Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and the Blessed Virgin Mary on Pentecost [May 23, 2010], we are reminded that: "All these devoted themselves with one accord to prayer, together with some women, and Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and his brothers." [Acts 1:14 (NAB)]
The Sorrowful & Immaculate Heart of His Mother, The Blessed Virgin Mary,
All the best,
Kevin B. McCarthy
For Our Lady of America P.S.: Whenever in the Washington Metropolitan area, you may wish to visit the Pope John Paul II Cultural Center and venerate that statue of Our Lady of America originally displayed at the 2006 Baltimore Meeting of the United States Catholic Bishops which His Excellency, Raymond Leo Burke, Archbishop of Saint Louis, did bless on November 15, 2006. The Pope John Paul II Cultural Center is located nearby to the Basilica of the National Shrine of The Immaculate Conception and the Catholic University of America. For directions see: www.jp2cc.org
