IN THE MONTH OF MAY, WE HONOR THE HOLY MOTHER OF GOD
Our Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church honors the Most Blessed Virgin Mary in a special way during the month of May. We offer prayers to our Spiritual Mother not only during each Divine Liturgy celebrated but also in special prayer services as Moleben and Akafist in Her honor.
Mary was the most perfect follower of Her Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ. Her advice to the waiter (server) at the Marriage at Cana is the same for each and every one of us: “Do whatever He tells you.“ At the Cross, Mary became our Spiritual Mother, and we, along with the beloved disciple John, Her children.
Let us seek Her Heavenly intercession before Her Son and sing: “O Most Holy of God, save us and protect us from all evil.”
