"Honor Thy Mother"
Our Lord, with the words "Behold thy Mother" as He died upon the cross, gave His own Mother to the whole Church to embrace also as our maternal refuge and help for salvation. The people of God call upon Mary our Mother and give witness to our devotion in obedience to Christ before the world with a procession to Our Lady's shrine. The first communicants in their special garb and members of the Liguori Society in cassock and surplice add to the solemnity of the May crowning.
