When I was a single lady, sad, discouraged, and thought I'd never meet a good Catholic gentleman to be my husband I discovered the "54 Day Rosary Novena". I prayed this novena several times over the years. It always gave me the peace and comfort I needed. As a single while praying this novena, I imagined Jesus wiping away my tears and the Blessed Mother whispering in my ear "Don't worry, we have someone just right for you!" And you know what? They did! I credit God, the Blessed Mother, and the rosary for giving me the graces I needed at the time and for helping my husband Ed to find me. We met on the Catholic Singles website catholicmatch. I had been a member on that website for three years and a half. Ed sent me that first email on Dec. 2005, we met in person on March 17th 2006, we became engaged on Sept. 17th 2006, and we received the Sacrament of Matrimony on June 16th 2007, the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary! When choosing a wedding date, we wanted to pick a Marian Feast Day to thank the Blessed Mother for bringing us together and to share our special day with Her!
Now we are praying the 54 day rosary novena to be blessed with a child either through my womb or through adoption. Even though the doctors tell us we have a low chance of conceiving due to our ages and the endometriosis stage four, I know that with God nothing is impossible! Look at the miracles God performed on St. Anne and St. Elizabeth - both these Saints were given the grace to be able to conceive and bear children in their forties! When the tears start to stream down my face and my heart aches for a child, I pray the rosary and it gives me the peace and comfort I need. I like to picture the Blessed Mother in Heaven hearing my request and bringing it to the throne of her Son Jesus. I know that Jesus and the Blessed Mother knows the desire in my heart to be a Mother, trust that they are hearing my prayers, and trying the best I can in faith to believe that I will receive someday the most precious grace of motherhood!
The rosary is my favorite devotion. This 54 day rosary novena is my favorite novena. If you enjoy praying the rosary, received a special grace from praying the rosary or this 54 day rosary novena, I would really LOVE to hear your story! Your stories will encourage me to keep praying the rosary and increase my faith and trust that my prayers will be answered someday too! Thank you so much! I will be looking forward to hearing from you and hopefully hearing your stories of prayers answered! I can't wait to hear them and really hope you will consider sharing! I am hoping too that my story about praying the 54 day rosary novena will encourage others to try praying this beautiful novena! It really works! My husband and I are proof!
I will remember you and your intentions in my daily rosary.
I am a Catholic wife trying to be the best wife I can be to my husband, to do God's will, and be able to accept His will in our marriage and family whatever it may be. I have a devotion to the Blessed Mother and Her Rosary. My desire is to share my love of the Blessed Mother and the Rosary and spread this devotion in this blog.
