My Friends,
I would like to take this time in this short note to encourage you to Pray The Rosary. LOL. I wonder how many people knew I’d say that. Of cause I wish to also encourage you to be very creative with the skills and passions that God has instilled in your hearts; and I’d also like to encourage you to be very out-going and friendly encouraging others to love Jesus and Mary; and yes I would encourage you to be forgiving always, which isn’t always easy, but should still be encouraged. But today for now at the beginning of this blog, I say to you...
Take up your rosary, and follow after Jesus, with Mary by your side.”
