We're reflecting on the fifth luminous mystery of the rosary today as part of our celebration of the launch of A Catholic Mother's Companion to Pregnancy.

We're at the source and summit of our faith with this mystery. It's the heart of everything we do as Catholics, and it's truly the food for our faith journey.

As we face the struggles in our everyday lives--the little crosses and travails that feel inordinately heavy by how normal they are--let us turn to this mystery in a special way.

Our host today is Michelle Reitemeyer at Rosetta Stone. You'll find my reflection on the MYSTERY 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.
