It's also, in Catholic tradition, a month dedicated to Mary, the mother of God.
My late mother once gave me a beautiful statue of the Virgin of Guadalupe that I cherish.
In May, the statue takes center stage in the middle of our kitchen table.
I also burn a little candle in front of her.
There's a small basket of flowers near her, too.
The statue is just symbolic but Mary really does bring me comfort and peace.
She suffered so greatly in seeing her beloved, precious and innocent son tortured and then die on a cross.
The face of the statue looks a little sad and with good reason.
I consider her a good intercessory and turn over all kinds of problems to her.
She always answers prayers.
