MFP 236: Why Families Need to Know the Blessed Mother

“Men do not fear a powerful hostile army as the powers of hell fear the name and protection of Mary.”

-St. Bonaventure

One of the questions we ask parents as an icebreaker for our in-person events is “How many of your children have used rosaries as weapons?” This is a common experience of families with young children as parents try to pray.  We get it.  For a long time, we found it hard to encourage devotion to the rosary with our children, but we have grown and learned a lot over the years! As we launch into the month of May, we wanted all our listeners to take some time to reflect on why the Blessed Mother is so important to families.  In this re-release of an earlier podcast, we talk about devotion to Our Lady, how to pray the rosary as a family creatively, and how she can inspire us in our family life.  Listen in and be encouraged and inspired!
