"At first, it seemed to me that I should distance myself a bit from the Marian devotion of my childhood in order to focus more on Christ. Thanks to St. Louis de Montfort, I came to understand that true devotion to the Mother of God is actually Chritocentric; indeed, it is very profoundly rooted in the mystery of the Blessed Trinity, and the mysteries of the Incarnation and Redemption."~Bl. Pope John Paul II

First post: Lean your head on Mary's heart

Just recently, a couple of days before the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, I told a friend who was traveling that if she was worried or couldn't sleep that she should just lean on Mary's heart. She told me later on that she followed my advice and found that by prayerfully doing so, she experienced amazing peace.

This blog is dedicated to our Mother Mary. Feel welcome to visit and bring your prayer requests (leave them in the comment box). My prayer is that Mother Mary will help.

I'll try to post some simple or profound snippets about Mother Mary each day.

O, Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee!


  1. I talk to our Blessed Mother throughout the day, even if it is just to repeat "Hail Mary Hail Mary". When I pass my Our Lady of Perpetual Help wall hanging, I give a quick wave and say "Hi".
    This is a wonderful blog!! Thank you Donna-Marie.
