This month I am supporting the Mary’s Meals Pray In May campaign, which invites people to pray for the charity’s work, so that more hungry children can receive life changing school meals.

Mary’s Meals, named after Mary, the Mother of Jesus, is now feeding more than 2.2 million children across 20 of the world’s poorest countries.

The promise of a good meal attracts these hungry children into the classroom, giving them the energy to learn and hope for a better future.

Growing up, May was always the month of Mary.

I have fond memories of May processions and bunches of bluebells placed in front of the statue of Our Lady.

Faith, hope and charity are interdependent in my life and Mary’s Meals embraces all of them.

As Catholics, it sometimes seems we are happy to share the fruits of faith – through acts of charity and kindness – but we are often shy about revealing its roots. Mary’s Meals does both with great joy.

There are lots of ways for your readers to support Mary’s Meals during this special month.
