Floral Offering in the Month of Mary

The scent of fresh Jasmin flowers filled our home office. With no fresh Jasmin flowers in sight, I searched everywhere, in every corner of our home and found none. The scent reminded me of the daily floral offering of children to the Blessed Mother in every church and chapel in the Philippines this month. My son has never exprienced this tradition and I thought SHE could be reminding me of what this special month means. I decided to buy four Jasmine garlands and asked my son to offer these on our family altar. We will continue with this beautiful tradition during the remaining days of May.
