Wear Blue

A while back, I came across something that suggested wearing blue on Marian feast days. So let’s all wear blue today, in honor of a great feast day for Mama Mary. It’s not an overtly crazy thing to do, but maybe when you look down at your shirt (or your jeans or your shoes or your socks or…well, whatever) you’ll remember to send her a shout and blow her a kiss.

Loving Mary

An incredible way to spend the day and honor Mary would also be to sit back and crank up episode 67 of the Among Women podcast, which is titled “What I Love About Mary.” You’ll hear me, but you’ll hear a host of other contributions too, some from saints, some from letters, and some from calls Pat received. There are lovely songs by Susan Bailey and the Daughters of St. Paul and no shortage of inspiration. Don’t miss it.

A Rosary for You

After a lot of reflection about praying for others, I wanted to offer to you a spot on my prayer list. I am often asking for your prayers, and I wanted to extend my thanks to you and reciprocate this important work of the Church. Leave a comment, email me, or let me know via one of the various social networks, and I will remember you during my morning prayers (which right now include a rosary).

  • Sarah,
    Thanks so much for the plug for Among Women — as always, I love that you took time to contribute, and I love that we both are sisters-in-Christ, under Momma Mary!

    Looking to find my blue sweater right now! 🙂

  • Loukas

    Thanks for this entry.
    I also found an interesting article about the Dormition/Assumption providing a broad perspective on the feast’s history and the various ways it is observed. Worth checking out: http://dstp.cba.pl/?p=2399

  • Would love to be added to your prayer list. My prayer life is so haphazard right now and has been for a while, though I’m trying to work on it. My long-term intention is for a successful pregnancy (we’ve had 3 failed pregnancies–2 miscarriages and 1 stillbirth). Any and all prayers are welcome! I’m trying to pray as well. Thanks so much for offering to pray for us. I love following your blog.
