My name is Maria Therese and I am an almost 42 year old Catholic wife devoted to the Blessed Mother and Her Rosary. The purpose of this blog is to encourage others to pray the Rosary and spread devotion to the Blessed Mother and the Rosary. God through the Blessed Mother and the Rosary has given me many graces, gifts, and blessings in my life.

Here is just one example of a blessing that God and the Blessed Mother have given me by praying the Rosary:

My husband Ed at the Shrine of St. Anne in Quebec during our honeymoon in June 2007!

Thank you God, the Blessed Mother, and the Rosary for answering my prayers and giving me such a wonderful Catholic gentleman for my husband!

May God Bless you.

Great job!! Maria, I know that some templates do not let you add a picture for the front...maybe this one doesn't...not sure.

What a beautiful photograph! What a blessing to be able to visit St Anne's shrine, a beautiful way to start a marriage!

May many graces flow through your new blog.

I'd love to help you step through in adding a picture to your header and changing colours etc...though it looks like that at the last moment we may be going down to when I get back, I'll talk to you again!

Welcome to the blog world, Maria Therese!
I shall add your name to my Rosary prayers on Saturday and Monday. When I meditate on the Annunciation on those days I pray for my friends who desire to be mothers.
My own testimony on devotion to the Rosary can be found on the side bar of my blog.
I can help you with the background and a photo, too.

On your blogger dashboard go to Layout, then "Fonts and Colors". You can choose the colors for your background, text etc.
Next go back to dashboard - then click on Layout.
You will see where you can edit 'Header'. Here you can type in the blog title you want, and add a photo background.
If you need more help please do not hesitate to ask.
God bless!

Hello Maria and many, many warm welcomes!

I wandered over here from Anne's at Under Her Starry Mantle. Your idea of a blog for spreading devotion to Mary sounded so lovely, I just had to visit.

I'm a bit of a newcomer too, so we can learn together. I can't wait to hear from you and will be coming back!

God Bless!

Dear Sister in Christ, Maria:

I too am a Catholic wife--I am 41, been married for 10 years. We found out in an emergency surgery, just weeks before our first anniversary, that I was full of stage IV endometriosis, with all the complications you can imagine. I will skip all the next 5 surgeries, drugs, and prayers which we went through....but I understand the enormous desire to be a mother. I have prayed for it since I was literally five years old, and my heart has broken a thousand times.

We could never afford IVF or other procedures. Our first adoption attempt failed. We are trying again.

Bless you on this day (the Assumption of Our Mother Mary). I hope you dreams come true!

Elizabeth Ann
P.S. I am a blogger, too.
