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

It's appropriate that this mystery falls on a Sunday (though, honestly, that's the work of the Holy Spirit and not by my own design).

Can you picture the joy of that first Easter? Is it something you carry with you today? How can you embrace it more fully and bring it into more of your everyday living?

Our host today is the Columbus Catholic Women's Conference blog. You'll find my reflection on the Resurrection 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.
