Happy New month!!!!!!!! I’m really glad that we all got to see the sixth month in the year 2020. Unfortunately, not all of us that saw the month of May will be seeing this month. Many have died from the corona and some have been killed unjustly. Many people would have wanted to see this month, but they won’t be able to. George Floyd would have wanted to see this month. But he won’t be able to.
To be honest, this year hasn’t really turned out to be the year we wanted it to be. We all had plans on how to go about our normal day, but we had to cut them shut. Our definition of normal isn’t what we are seeing now. But then again, we are reminded by God to be glad and rejoice in spite of everything. Like I said in one of my posts last month, he hasn’t forgotten us.
So today, just like I did last month, I’m going to give you some brief facts about the month of June.
June is the sixth month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calenders. It is the second of four months to have a length of 30 days, and the third of five months to have a length of less than 31 days.
The latin name for June is Junis. Multiple etymologies have been offered for the name in Fasti, a poem about the Roman calendar. The first is that the month is named after the Roman goddess Juno, the goddess of marriage and the wife of supreme deity Jupiter.
The second is that, the name comes from the Latin word Iuniores, meaning “Younger ones”, as opposed to Maiores (elders) for which the preceding month, May(Maius) may be named. Another source claims that June is named after Lucius Junius Brutus, founder of the Roman Republic and ancestor of the “Roman gen Junia”.
In Catholic tradition, June is the month of the sacred heart of Jesus. Here are some observances that I was able to pick out in the month of June.
