Two years ago this month, after a meeting with my prayer group, I made a decision to entrust all my business decisions to Mary.
This proved to be a great decision. Over the next week I gained several new, long-term freelance clients after a dry spell. This decision has continued to bless my endeavors in new ways, and it has gifted me with a relationship with the Blessed Mother that I didn’t have before.
Reflecting on this, I’ve been looking for other resources—and I think I’ve found a good one: Karen Edmisten’s book Through the Year with Mary. With a short quote and reflection for every day of the year, this book is a real treasure.
“When your heart is anxious, turn to Mary and say, ‘Mary, put my heart at peace.’ When your mind is too busy, look to Mary and pray, ‘Mary, settle down my mind.’ When you want to grow and deepen your life, look to Mary and beg, ‘Mary, just as you helped Jesus grow in wisdom and grace, help me also to advance on the spiritual path which God has laid out for me.'” –Fr. Alfred McBride, Through the Year with Mary.
What experiences have you had with the Mother of God? I’d love to hear them!
