I always thought that to be a "good" Catholic, you had to have a really good relationship with the Blessed Mother.
Don't get me wrong... I love Mama Mary. She is amazing. She is beautiful. I look up to her.
Yet, I am not sure I would ever say I was particularly close to her. At my young adult group a while ago, we were talking about the different Marian apparitions. So many people were sharing story after story about what Mary has done in their lives. How praying the Rosary changed them. How much closer they are with Jesus because of Mary.
I was just sitting there all.... silent. And in awe.
I don't have some profound and amazing story about how Mary radically changed my life.
And you know what? It's ok.

I am honored to be the first guest blogger on my friend Catherine's (no, Celeste's, no CC's... she has a name identity crisis! haha) new blog, Marian Way in the Modern Day... a "gathering place for women living out their fiat to the Lord." It's such a cool place to gather as women to share our faith, femininity and special relationship with our Blessed Mother. Check it out!
Catherine is all the way up in Toronto, living life as a wife, new momma and middle school teacher! She is so sweet, funny and encouraging. I know this first hand because we had the chance to meet when I was in Boston! :) Check out her personal blog and say hi on Twitter!
