Virtue of the Month
The month of May will conclude our focus on the diocesan theme – To Jesus through Mary – with a focus on the virtue of devotion. Devotion has a number of synonyms, but the one that may best describe it is the term“loyalty.” To devote oneself to a person or to a cause is a commitment of remaining loyal. It is returning to the person or cause regularly to deepen relationships or understanding. The month of May serves as a good teacher of devotion as we center our attention throughout the month on the Blessed Mother, celebrate the feast of St. Joseph the Worker at the beginning of the month, and remember our own mothers on Mother’sDay. Could one find better definitions of devotion than Mary, Joseph, and our own mothers?
