The Sun is warming, the birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, and the garden is growing. “May” is likely named for the Roman goddess Maia, who oversaw the growth of plants. Alternatively, the name might have come from the Latin maiores, “elders,” who were celebrated now. May acts as the bridge between spring and summer, hinting at warmer weather for those still stuck in spring’s grasp, while heating things up for those already well on their way.

It’s a Catholic tradition to honor Mary during the month of May by crowning her statue with flowers. The reason why we crown Mary is best summed up by Pope Paul VI, who wrote in 1965 that May is an occasion for a “moving tribute of faith and love which Catholics in every part of the world pray to the Queen of Heaven.”
