I really don't think Our lady cares about our consistency as much as that we make the effort to pray to begin with. Her joy is in the fact that we honor her and her Son by saying the Rosary.
God grants us many graces even when we think we do not deserve it, and Our Lady showers us with her love and graces at our mere thought of her Immaculate Heart!


Step into the unknown with confidence! Trust that in the darkness of that first step there will either be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly!
Nothing tastes as good as living with less pain feels!

Personal problems have kept me from being consistent or following through on many things, lately, but the last few Rosary Novenas are exceptions. Praying them brings a calm peacefulness that is so needed.

Even if my mind wandered during the prayers, I often found Mother Mary answering some need that had been bothering me. She is always there for us!

Take time to THINK...It is the source of power.Take Time to READ..It is the fountain of wisdom.
Take time to PRAY..It is the greatest power on earth. Take Time to LOVE and BE LOVED..It is a God-given privilege.
Be FRIENDLY, It is the road to happiness.. take time to LAUGH..it is the music of the soul.
Take time to Give it is too short a day to be selfish.. Take time to DO CHARITY..
it is the key to heaven.

emoticon JUNEBUG! The peace I receive praying is a peace like no other... one I want to remain in. Though the world around us may crumble, the peace of the Presence of Christ will remain with us!

In spite of all going on around me I have remained at peace in my heart/soul. it seems the more I pray the more I feel that peace in my heart.

When all your desires are distilled, you will cast just two votes: to love more and to be happy.

Another 54 days have passed... a 54 day Novena may seem like a long time to pray, especially if it is your first time joining in. But time can fly when you open your heart to Mary...
I always am amazed at how each Rosary is different. The basic structure never changes, but how I pray and what envision as I pray vary from time to time. Some days the Rosary is quiet, remembering each and every petition as written. Other times certain aspects of the petitions take hold of my focus. Other days I feel led to generalize, and focus more on how each mystery is related to the petitions. The Holy Spirit nudges me differently with each Rosary. No room for boredom. Lots of room for joining in spirit with everyone else praying along with me!
Saying the Rosaries during the Lenten season has meant a lot to me. The effect of my Lenten intentions and the Rosaries has been to direct me into a closer relationship with God and my Mother, Mary. My interior life has been enlarged, and my heart/soul has been blessed with a taste of the glory and power of God... the power Jesus claimed for us in His Resurrection.
I am grateful for the opportunity to join with my Catholic Critters in prayer!
