ERE’S A POWERFUL plainsong Offertory for 31 May, which is a 1950s feast called “Mary the Queen.” Those in Los Angeles can hear this piece being sung by attending a special Solemn Mass on 31 May:
Years ago, one of my teachers had this beautiful verse hung on his wall:
You may have tangible wealth untold;
Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.
Richer than I you can never be—
I had a Mother who read to me.
Today’s secular culture is incredibly anti-motherhood. These days, some even assault the very notion of “gender.” What a terrible thing it would be not to know what a mother is and should be!
