Our Lady’s Blue Brigade grew out of one woman’s desire to unite all those praying the rosary into a mighty army. The rosary begins with us, grows with our families, and unites with all those around the world praying the same prayer. Mary is our Queen and the head of our army. We pray, we share, we teach – and we grow the message that with Mary leading our prayer, nothing is impossible. We become women of prayer in the midst of our busy lives – a Mary to our Martha.
First step is to start praying your rosary. Seem daunting? Start by praying a decade a day. But a 5 decade rosary while meditating on the mysteries of the day, a 15 to 20 minute commitment to prayer, should be our minimum goal each day.
Our goal is to find an hour and fifteen minutes at least once a week or once a month to pray all 20 decades of the rosary while meditating on the mysteries. This is my personal goal each day. It is a retreat guided by Mary each time we do. It is powerful and God will use that time to mold us into His people, through Mary and the rosary.
But we shouldn’t keep all this goodness to ourselves. To become a true army, we need to join with others in prayer. Yes, we can join with others in the virtual world, but also join together first with your family. If your church already has a rosary time, join with them. If they don’t, offer to lead a rosary before mass. Others will quickly join in.
This year I started gathering with friends to pray a rosary in my daughter’s home once a week. It has truly been a blessed time for all of us.
And consecrate yourself to Jesus through Mary. You can use the St. Louis de Montfort consecration, or the newer 33 Days to Morning Glory by Fr. Gaitley. Both books are available on Amazon. I have used both and have been immensely blessed by both. You can follow along with our Facebook group – 33 Days to Morning Glory with WOLF. We lead a group through the retreat a couple of times a year.
