I am posting to Light in the Darkness today. What a joy to express some good news during the week. Just click on the link to participate.
Today, I began teaching my son the Memorare prayer. It is such a powerful prayer and my husband and I devoted our marriage to the Blessed Mother. I am so excited for him to learn this prayer. He is in first grade and his faith is very strong already. Afterwards, we will learn the other prayers that we say at the end of the rosary like the St. Michael's prayer and then the Magnificat. We try to say the whole rosary on Sundays. We say a decade every day and my son recalls all Five Mysteries each day. Now we can end with the Memorare.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
