Small Town Life and Mary

A Mary Moment Monday post I’ve been writing at least weekly about Mary for quite some time, and especially with my projects in the last year, I’ve “met” many different titles and apparitions of the Blessed Virgin. In each of these “meetings” with Mary, I have found myself tugged and pulled and, well, changed a […]
