Mary's Month - Fatima Centenary
The Jesuit poet, Gerard Manley Hopkins asked, in one of his poems, why May is Mary's month. You can find his lovely answer here.
This May is special for many Catholics: the centenary of the first apparition of our Lady at Fatima falls on the 13th of this month. A kind parishioner has drawn to my attention that, to celebrate the centenary, the St Paul Center in the US is offering a video course free this May. Entitled "Bible and the Virgin Mary" it is based on a book by the respected Catholic theologian, Scott Hahn. You can register for the course to enjoy at home here. You will also find a link at the same place to help you if you would like to follow the course with family members or friends.
