Daily Offering - Today's Prayer with the Pope

Mary, our Mother teach us how to open our hearts without reserve to the Holy Spirit as you did, to seek and find God’s will in all the crises and choices of our lives. Gain for us too, the grace to do his will with courage and untroubled hearts so that we may radiate a joy and gladness like yours in the service of our Lord. And I pray with Mary and the whole Church for the Pope’s intentions this month.

September is Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month

As  a young woman, I was diagnosed with severe cervical dysplasia, a condition where cells of the cervix become abnormal.  If left untreated, it can lead to cancer.  Luckily, mine was caught early during a routine Pap smear.  A cone biopsy was done, and Cryocauterization froze all of the abnormal cells.  I have been symptom free since then.  

The Foundation for Women's Cancer has a web page with information and links for even more information.  It is always good to keep oneself informed, please take time to visit them.  

Teal is the color of Cervical Cancer Awareness.  I have designed a rosary to help support this cause, a percentage of profits will be donated to The Gynecologic Cancer Foundation.  

You can purchase this rosary at my website or from my Etsy shop.
