Oh, Dearest Mother, Sweetest Virgin of Altagracia, our Patroness. You are our Advocate and to you we recommend our needs. You are our Teacher and like disciples we come to learn from the example of your holy life. You are our Mother, and like children, we come to offer you all of the love of our hearts. Receive, dearest Mother, our offerings and listen attentively to our supplications. Amen.

Alright, I'm finding conflicting info from credible sources online. Is April dedicated to the Holy Spirit or the Holy Eucharist?

I think you will probably have to choose which to use.

Devotions for various month can vary (depending on the source you use, as you have found) and have changed over time in some cases.

From my credible sources, Lacy, it's just like Trish said, either or are correct.

April would make sense to be the Holy Eucharist because Holy Thursday falls in April.

That's so interesting. So what you're saying is, no matter what I say on my blog I'm going to get some emails telling me I'm wrong. I still have so much to learn about the liturgical year!

I think we'll go with the Holy Eucharist here, because we've been learning about the mass, Eucharist, and adoration. Somehow during "M" week my daughter just became fascinated with monstrances. We recently crafted monstrances from pool noodles! I'm hoping to post about it soon. If I do I'll come back with the link.

Quote:
from A Book of Feasts and Seasons, by Joanna Bogle

Saint George's Day - How to set the table
Use a white sheet as a tablecloth. Across it stretch two lengths of crimson ribbon to form a Saint George's Cross. The ends of the ribbon should be cut into inverted V's -- this looks neat and helps prevent fraying. The ribbon can be pinned to the cloth -- this keeps the arrangement looking nice all through the meal and it is quite easy to do it in such a way that the pins don't show. A red rose -- you can now buy very attractive linen or silk ones at very little cost -- should be placed at the center of the cross. Use red candles.
