Welcome to Day 9 of the Small Steps Blog Tour! Our theme today is Diligence.


You'll find today's "small steps" over at Domestic Vocation. We invite you to join us throughout the day in offering a rosary reflecting on the Glorious Mysteries. Diligence is defined by my dictionary as "careful or persistent work." Pretty hard to argue with that as a description of parenthood, isn't it?

Without diligence, we would never have gotten to these mysteries. Without diligence we can't get through these mysteries either. So let's get to it...

The Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary:

  • The Resurrection
  • The Ascension
  • The Descent of the Holy Spirit
  • The Assumption of Mary
  • The Coronation of Mary as Queen of Heaven and Earth

Don't forget to enter the "Five Minutes Alone" contest that's going on as part of our blog tour!
