Happy New Year 2014
I make these on New Years Eve in my kitchen. It's fun. It's a good way to begin the year and making a Mary Box is a prayer in itself. YOU are in one of them if you ever asked for prayer. Hope you do this at your home too.
Much love to all my followers.
Hope to see change in 2014. EK
When someone asked me to pray for them I'd say I would but then I'd either forget and/or didn't know what or how to do it.
I discovered the solution at a Care-giver's Retreat. I am very visual and this is what I did: I took a little scrap of paper, wrote their prayer intention, folded it carefully like a ritual, stood in front of my Mary Box and asked for the intervention of the Blessed Mother to her Son, Jesus for whatever this person desired. (healing, a job, pain relief, diagnosis, return of lost pet, safe journey, etc, etc.) followed by a Hail Mary and then I placed it into the slot in the box!
When the box is full I seal it. I never look at any request that I have written again. I have on occasion taken my Mary Boxes with me to Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and placed them near the Altar asking for blessings for all those who are in the boxes.
