Traditional May Crowning May 11th, Carmel, Indiana


William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905)

Carmel, Indiana (May 7, 2008)  – The St. John Bosco Latin Mass Community announces their forth Traditonal Latin Mass (TLM) featuring the traditional May crowning on Sunday, May 11th at 5:00 pm at St Elizabeth Ann Seton, Carmel, Indiana.  Father Roberto Cano, FSSP son of Augusto and Rita Cano of Lafayette will offer this TLM on Mothers Day in honor of The Mother of God and to all mothers.  

The TLM has inspired many Roman Catholic traditions to be reconsidered.  The crowning of statues of The Mother of God during May was once very common among Catholics in the United States and thanks to the TLM is making a comeback.  It is still common in other countries but not always during May. The Blessed Mother teaches us what it means to pray and ponder over the events that we need to sort out. St. Mary always points us to Jesus, her son, Lord and the source of her strength.  Crowning her statue acknowledges she is The Mother of God, Queen of the Angels and disciple.
