Hi, guys —

  • As a recent convert to the Church, how can I become closer to Mary?

Mike replied:

Hi, Rich —

First, welcome to the Church. Your presence makes us a stronger Church.

The best way I know to become closer to Mary is to pray the Rosary and get enrolled in the Brown Scapular. You can probably Google for free Rosaries and Brown Scapulars on the web by using the following phrases:

Here are some MS Word and PDF documents that you can use with them.

Also ask Our Blessed Lord, Himself, to guide you to a proper devotion to our spiritual mother.

For those having a hard time honoring our Blessed Mother, say the following prayer:

Lord, if it is your desire and will that your mother become an important part of my growth in holiness as a Christian, then please make a way and a time to introduce me to her and grant me the grace to be responsive to all she has to offer me.


Hope this helps!
