I was surprised at how many catechumens in RCIA over the years mentioned Mary having led them to this moment, or of her playing a big part in it, even tho' they were so very unfamiliar with her. I was pleased to respond to the ones who mentioned it personally to me that they had a special blessing I had never experienced.

The website for the Little Crown prayer is so helpful, and this prayer is one I've never seen.. I wanted to print it out to pray again later, after my second cup of coffee. Being out of black ink, I selected to print it out in red, the color I thought I still had left, as has been so for many days.. but when I took it from the tray, it was all in deep purple -- color of royalty and of the Passion. Perfect! And being out of paper, I had to print it on the back pages of a holy man's poem-hymn entitled "After this our exile.." Again, perfect. :-) I am most thankful for the other prayers and reflections at the site.

Thank you, Deacon.
Thank you, Mary.
Thank you, Jesus.
