"Praying with Mary" features individuals from a wide range of ages and backgrounds who explain who Mary is for them, what the Rosary means to them in their spiritual life, why they pray it, whether or not they find it boring
and repetitive, when they pray it... Let these words of lawyers, teachers, homemakers, judges, social workers, carpenters, engineers, students, and others offer you the chance to get to know and love Our Heavenly Mother
better!

Mary Blackman

Mary Blackman had an idea of who the Blessed Virgin Mary is in her mind that didn’t coincide with who She really is. That idea changed over time as she began to grow closer to Christ and, through Him, learn the truth about Mary and the Church. The example of seeing how powerful the prayer of the Rosary was in the life of others moved her to pray it more and discover in it not just a repetition of words, but a contemplation on the life and mysteries of Our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Br. Damien Novak

Br. Damien Novak is a Franciscan Friar of the Renewal. He began to pray the Rosary thanks to the road trips he went on with his youth group. Later on, in seminary it went from a communal prayer to a personal prayer after having done the Total Consecration to Mary. He insists that the Rosary is what keeps the faith alive today. For him, praying it first thing every morning is like placing himself beneath Our Lady’s mantle and beneath her loving protection.

Kolbe Grant

For Kolbe Grant praying the Rosary wasn’t always something he would willingly do when he was little, but just like the faith, it’s been a journey for him to take on as something of his own. Making the Way of St. James and inspired by the example of the young people, Kolbe began to pray the Rosary. He tells us that many trends have come and gone but the Rosary has been around for along time, so it must be something really special.

Michelle Kelly

In this episode of Praying with Mary, Michelle Kelly, from Ireland, shares about her close relationship with Our Lady. Having grown up in a Catholic family, the figure of Mary was always present in her life, but it was little by little that she began to take the faith personally. Her relationship with Our Lady has also transformed from a simple participation in prayers and the Rosary to the trust and confidence that springs forth from a personal relationship. What used to cost her effort—something that seemed boring as a child—is now a practice that she can't abandon.

Samuel Pitcaithly

Samuel, a NET Missionary dedicated to the evangelization of university students, speaks of the importance that Our Blessed Mother has had in his life since his childhood. He practices this devotion by praying the rosary daily and shares how it has become for him more than just words, but rather a truly contemplative prayer. For Samuel, the rosary places him in the very heart of our salvation, the life of Jesus, by the hands of His Blessed Mother.

Praying with Mary: Mike Devault

In this Praying with Mary, Mike Devault, a freelance contractor, husband and father, shares his experience of Our Lady since his return to the faith. The joy of rediscovering Our Blessed Mother he expresses with a simple “She’s everywhere.” Our Lady's constant presence and the faithful perseverance of praying the rosary were key aspects in Mike's conversion.
