Month of Mary

Looking for outdoor activities? Spend the month of Mary starting and tending a Mary Garden. The tradition goes back to the Middle Ages when the religious planted gardens and gave the flowers names related to Mary as a way to teach the faith. A Mary garden will be much like any other flower garden, though a statue of Mary will be the focal point. The flowers you choose to plant should have some relation to Mary. For example, roses are a popular choice. Other flowers to include might be lilies of the valley (Mary’s tears), marigolds (Mary’s gold), lavender (Mary’s drying plant), and daisies (Mary’s star.)

 If you don’t have room for a Mary Garden, keep a candy dish of Feast Day Roses near an image of Our Lady.

Feast of Our Lady of Fatima

Though there aren’t any specific dishes to commemorate the feast of Our Lady of Fatima, a Portuguese dish that is popular in spring and summer is piri piri chicken. Simply season a whole chicken with piri piri seasoning and grill. Butterfly the chicken to make grilling easier. Add to the evening by making it a family movie night with the movie Fatima.

Feast of St. Rita

Once when St. Rita was ill, she requested figs. However, it was the middle of winter and that seemed impossible. However, two figs were found on a nearby tree. St. Rita has become so associated with figs that one variety is even named the St. Rita fig. Prepare for the feast of St. Rita next Sunday by picking up a simple snack containing figs. It is a pleasant way to celebrate the feast of St. Rita.

Ascension of the Lord

Whether you choose to celebrate the Ascension on Thursday or next Sunday, celebrate with a picnic. Probably because of the nature of the event, Jesus being carried up into the clouds, the feast of the Ascension has most notably been celebrated through France, Germany, and Italy outdoors. So, find your favorite picnic food and head to a park or just your backyard, but enjoy some time outside with your family.

Pentecost Sunday

Have you ever had gooseberry pudding? In England, that is a traditional dessert for Pentecost Sunday. However, if you think it might be difficult coming up with gooseberry pudding by next Sunday’s feast, cheesecakes topped with strawberry topping to represent to flame of the Holy Spirit is popular. Rum cake is another wonderful option. And if you want to make your dinner extra special, set the table with a white tablecloth and sprinkle red rose petals over it.
