Prayer for the Home:
Celebrate the Assumption of Mary with a Spiritual Bouquet
In times of stress, it can be easy to become centered on one’s own struggles, but offering a spiritual bouquet—an intentional gift of prayer on behalf of another’s intentions—can be a beautiful act of charity made in honor of Our Lady as the Church celebrates her Assumption on August 15.
