From a reader…
I have begun the habit of adding a devotion to my prayers for each month. Some are obvious, like July being the Precious Blood. But, there seems to be some disagreement on certain months, like August, where some sources say it is dedicated to
the Eucharist and others to the Assumption. What are the proper dedications to each month and day of the week?
As I understand them:
|January||The Holy Name of Jesus|
|February||The Holy Family|
|April||The Holy Eucharist|
|May||The Blessed Virgin Mary|
|June||The Sacred Heart of Jesus|
|July||The Precious Blood of Jesus|
|August||The Immaculate Heart of Mary|
|September||The Seven Dolors of Mary|
|October||The Holy Rosary|
|November||The Holy Souls in Purgatory|
|December||The Immaculate Conception|
|Sunday||Most Holy Trinity|
|Friday||Passion of the Lord|
|Saturday||Blessed Virgin Mary|
However, priests know that we offer votive Masses on days of the week in a traditional order: Monday – Holy Trinity, Tuesday – Holy Angels, Wednesday – St. Joseph…. etc.
I’m sure you will find other lists.
Pick one and pray!
And, please, a prayer for me.
