Immaculate Heart of Mary

The month of August is dedicated to The Immaculate Heart of Mary. The entire month falls within the liturgical season of Ordinary Time, which is represented by the liturgical color green. This symbol of hope is the color of the sprouting seed and arouses in the faithful the hope of reaping the eternal harvest of heaven, especially the hope of a glorious resurrection. It is used in the offices and Masses of Ordinary Time. The last portion of the liturgical year represents the time of our pilgrimage to heaven during which we hope for reward.

August is often considered the transitional month in our seasonal calendar. It is the time of the year we begin to wind-down from our summer travels and vacations and prepare for Autumn — back to school, fall festivals, harvest time, etc. The Church in her holy wisdom has provided a cycle of events in its liturgical year which allow the faithful to celebrate the major feasts in the life of Christ and Mary. Most notably, during August, we celebrate the feast of the Transfiguration (August 6) and the feast of the Assumption (August 15).


I am the living bread that came down from heaven, says the Lord. Whoever eats of this bread will live for ever.

The Gospel of the Canaanite women is a lesson to us that we must be attentive to the Spirit speaking to us, discerning the Spirit, and draw upon the boldness and courage of the Spirit to act. We learn from the example the early church gives us that discerning the spirit is not a totally personal act.  This discernment is both liberating and humbling. It liberates us from being overly comfortable in living our faith, and humbles us to trust in the authority of others before we act. Sometimes the Spirit calls us to make major changes in our lives, and without prayer for the grace and courage to do so we can easily fall short.
