If you’ve ever wondered how to bring the mysteries of the rosary into your daily life, the work that Cait Winters is doing with MotherhoodThroughTheMysteries.com is going to hit home.
By having fellow moms write their own stories, drawing inspiration from one particular mystery and the fruit of it, Cait is creating a beautiful deposit of real life Catholic motherhood, in all its messy holiness.
In Cait’s own words:
This project was born of this devotion. At first I thought I’d write a work of fiction, creating characters to exemplify how motherhood nurtures these virtues. But Mary softened my heart. She reminded me that there are real women out there with wisdom to share, and here we are! My prayer is that this project will promote empathy, encourage community and speak to the hearts of women everywhere, drawing the closer to Jesus through Mary.Motherhood Through the Mysteries Founder, Cait Winters
The project continues to grow, and to chat about Motherhood Through the Mysteries, the beautiful effects of the rosary on our own lives as mothers, and how sometimes God calls us to do things that we wouldn’t have done on our own, Cait joined me on Episode 192 of The Catholic Mama podcast.
As the Holy Spirit began to draw her towards creating this project, Cait reached out to me to see if I might like to write one of the stories, and I’m so glad she did and that I was able to be a part of the first “rosary of stories”.
Now, she’s collecting stories for the second rosary! If you’re interested in submitting a part of your motherhood story, you can learn more about the submission guidelines here.
