The 6th Anniversary of “Mondays with Mary”

Today marks another milestone in my writing – it is the 6th Anniversary of “Mondays with Mary.” I started this series on a whim 6 years ago thinking that I would only do it during the month of that first year, but after receiving some comments on the blog posts that I wrote in May of 2012, I decided to continue to write every Monday on the Blessed Virgin Mary.

As of late though, my writing on this series and overall has decreased due to family commitments (marriage/wedding preparation and our newest four-legged addition to our family, who we rescued and adopted). Writing has allowed me to share with you the importance of the Catholic faith and why it is so important to me. If writing wasn’t important to me, I would have quit long ago, but in case you are unaware, today’s post is my 828th overall and the 287th “Mondays with Mary.”

“Mondays with Mary” – The Top Five “Mondays with Mary” Over the Past 365 Days

Being that next Monday is the fourth anniversary of “Mondays with Mary” and the 200th blog post of the series; I thought I would do something very simple and very short for #199. I can’t even fathom that I have written as much as I have in general about Catholicism, but being so close to #200 with this series on the Blessed Mother gets me very excited. With the collection and purchasing of some new Marian books, this series will continue on for the foreseeable future.

I want to give a “shout out” to the Catholic Facebook Ministry group. Many of these Catholics have shared numerous posts from this series and other writings I have done in the past. It was this group that put me in contact with Annie and John-Paul Deddens and the PrayMoreRetreat.com. Thank you for your witness to Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church.

Our Lady, Theotokos, Ever-Virgin…Pray for Us.
