JOIN MARGE FOR MARIAN PILGRIMAGE: DISCOVERING MARY ACROSS THE USA
Join Marge as she journeys to NINE different Marian pilgrimage sites coast-to-coast across the US. As she travels, she'll keep you posted about her adventures on Relevant Radio's "Morning Air Show," social media, on her blog here at MargeFenelon.com and at National Catholic Register. The culmination of Marge's sojourns will be MARIAN PILGRIMAGE: A LIVING NOVENA, a brand new book published by Ave Maria Press (Fall 2018). Modeled after her award-winning OUR LADY, UNDOER OF KNOTS; A LIVING NOVENA, MARIAN PILGRIMAGE will be in Marge's hallmark genre of part armchair pilgrimage and part devotional. The result will be a spiritual journey that will take you more deeply into the heart of our Mother Mary. Come along!
When you give Mary a personal crown, you’re making a monumental declaration. You are proclaiming her Queen – your Queen. And when you crown her, you may ask her for the special graces that she has to give you as your Queen. She’ll give them to you. That and more.
For those of us who have had, or still do have, great moms, honoring them on Mother’s Day is easy. For those of us who have had, or do have, struggling moms, it can be extremely difficult – seemingly impossible. If our moms have been neglectful or abusive, it can be even worse.
There’s a remedy for that.
God put us where we are right now for specific reason and to fulfill a specific mission. Often we miss that essential point, becoming discontent with what God has given us and where he’s placed us. We’d prefer to “bloom” anywhere but where we are right now.
