Fly to Mary

Mary is our Mother who loves us and wants to help us. Ever since I was a little girl I have prayed this very special prayer asking for Mary to intercede, The Memorare. The image of prayers flying up to her in heaven where she then offers them to Jesus for me is very hopeful.

It is a prayer of trust in a mother who will never let us down, always listening to us and helping us.

St. Teresa of Calcutta had a special devotion to Mary and prayed this same prayer often, calling it her “Flying Novena.” She would pray 9 Memorares and then 1 more in thanksgiving for the answer. The Missionaries of Charity use it often. I have as well and by the end, either I have an answer, I am calm or the situation has resolved itself. All great outcomes!

I encourage you to pray this prayer and go to Mary and ask for her help.

And that’s the Not Lukewarm Challenge for the week.
