It’s that time of the year again. Crisp fall leaves, cool autumn air, warm scents of apple cider, and the comforting presence of our Blessed Mother drawing closer every day.
The transition into the autumn season welcomes opportunities for personal and spiritual growth. It’s a time for reflection—a chance to reconnect with ourselves, switch up our routine, and delve deeper into our journey of faith.
September is full of many wonderful feast days that challenge us to live each day with greater purpose in mind. On September 15, we celebrated the Memorial of our Lady of Sorrows, a beautiful feast that draws us near to the suffering of the Lord and Mary’s tender heart. As we celebrate the many Marian feasts this month, Mary draws closer to us; and when we allow ourselves, we become united to her in a special way—through sorrow and in hope—so that one day we may share in the glories of her Son.
Our Blessed Mother has given us the gift of the Rosary as an instrument to implore her intercession and meditate on the mysteries of her Son. Entering a new season allows us to pause and create room to grow in both our personal and spiritual lives. It is also a time for reconnection—reconnection with our desires, our prayers, our relationships with ourselves, others, and most importantly God. During this transition, we have an opportunity to challenge ourselves to something new. In our prayer, through the intercession of our Blessed Mother, may we ask Jesus to transform our hearts and minds. May we harvest the fruit we have grown over the past months and trust that He will plant new seeds in due time.
As we prepare for October, the month of the Rosary, it is only fitting to welcome Mary and her blessings into our hearts by praying the Rosary more often. Our Magnificat Rosalet creates an inseparable union between prayer and design. Worn as a bracelet, it displays the depth of prayer and is a continuous reminder of our devotion.
Our new Rose Gold Magnificat Rosalet® is the perfect Fall accessory, keeping the rosary close and while adorning yourself in beauty.
During the coming weeks, as you continue to harvest and grow, keep these questions in mind:
Begin your time in prayer by meditating on the prayer below, and then ask God how He wants to use you in this time.
Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty,
My memory, my understanding
And my entire will,
All I have and call my own.
You have given all to me.
To you, Lord, I return it.
Everything is yours; do with it what you will.
Give me only your love and your grace.
That is enough for me.
Saint Ignatius of Loyola
