the prayers of a modern mary

My name is MaryClare (she/her).

I’m an Anglo Catholic Episcopalian who met Jesus in the Eucharist. Through the Rosary I got to know Jesus and Mary, his mother. I have a special devotion to Mother Mary. Saint Mary Magdalene is my patron saint, and she has also pointed me to Jesus and the healing he offers. I’ve seen some darkness in my time but Jesus is the light, and the light overcomes the darkness.

I write and curate resources to help with prayer. I document parts of my own spiritual journey, and share prayers that I have written, things that help me spiritually, and much more. I hope that you can use some of the content her in your journey with Jesus.

With God’s help, I shall become myself
~ Soren Kierkegaard

I commend my soul to God my Creator, who made me of nothing and created me in the divine image; to Jesus my Savior, who loves me and gave himself for me; to the Holy Spirit, by whom I was sealed in baptism and who sanctifies me; into thy hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.

The Introduction to the Rosary video series is designed for those with no experience whatsoever with the rosary. Each video is less than three minutes long and can be found on either YouTube or TikTok. I hope that learning to pray the rosary will be as significant to you as it was to me. The rosary is where Mary shows us her son, Jesus.
