Begin by reading and praying with the Gospel about the Wedding at Cana

In this video, Catholic Speaker Fr Mike Schmitz explains what we mean when we call Mary our Mother.

After reading the passage, journal on the following questions:

- What role does Mary play in the passage?

- What does Mary tell the servants to do?

- How is this an example how Mary intercedes for us today?

This week's "Read This" helps dive into what Catholics really believe about Mary, opening up three key areas: the Immaculate Conception, the Annunciation, and Mary as the New Eve.

The Rosary is a powerful form of prayer, in which we meditate on the Gospels and ask for Mary's help. Like the Wedding of Cana, it is a way that Mary brings us closer to her Son, Jesus.

Then, pray a Rosary together. If an entire Rosary seems daunting at first, then pray a decade together. Then work on adding another at a different time until you slowly work up to praying an entire Rosary.
