Virgins of New York

I love that the priest asked a seat for the Virgin rather than wrapping her statue up as luggage. The statue is holy and should be treated as such!

May crowning and procession ~  Thanks, Lori.  Forgot all about this big part of  my 'parochial school childhood".  I can still remember most of the words we sang during the "May Procession".  "oh Mary we crown thee with blossoms today...queen of the Angels, queen of the May..".  It's a scary/sweet memory--as Catholic school occupies both places in my memory banks!
