The Anchoress and the Annunciation

We’re reflecting on the first mystery of the rosary today as part of our celebration of the launch of A Catholic Mother’s Companion to Pregnancy.

As I struggle in my own prayer life, and especially with the rosary, I find myself drawn closer, again and again, to it. I know, it’s paradoxical: the more I walk with Mary through the mysteries, the more I stumble and fumble and bumble my way through it, the closer I bring myself to both her and her son.

Our host today is none other than the Anchoress, Elizabeth Scalia. You’ll find my reflection on the Annunciation there, as well as the prayers.

I hope you’ll join us today–and each day of the tour–while we pray together for all of our intentions. I do have a special set of intentions that I’m carrying with me as I pray this, and I will remember each of yours as well.

Don’t forget that you can enter to win a Nook tablet as we pray and help us celebrate the launch of the latest title in the CatholicMom.com book line. You can enter once a day during from now until October 28.
