We're reflecting on the fourth joyful mystery of the rosary today as part of our celebration of the launch of A Catholic Mother's Companion to Pregnancy.
As I pray this mystery in one of my favorite audio formats, I'm reminded that the virtue associated with it is obedience. And you know what? I'm not so good at that. Maybe, in fact, it is something I can work on in a small way today as I reflect on Mary and Joseph's ongoing obedience in their parenthood.
Our host today is Julie Davis at Happy Catholic. You'll find my reflection on the Presentation 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 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.
