Devotion to Mother Mary: Modesty in Dress

As I devote my life to Jesus through Mary, I pledge to appropriate in all manners. Starting with the proper attire. In obedience, I commit myself to wear white, respectable and feminine dress or clothes. As a woman, I am entitled to wear clothes that dignify respect, decency and holiness. Meaning I will wear dresses, skirts and blouses in a conservative way. It has been two weeks that I have been in all white and so far I am loving it. Today I cleaned out my closet of all my colored clothes, pants, shorts and all inappropriate clothing for my devotion. Most of it I will donate to the church nearby and some I will give to friends. This is a big step for me. I love fashion and I love my clothes. I have always received compliments from my outfits. I would proudly say I have very good taste in clothing. But now I am saying "goodbye" to my brand name outfits, to my old self. Now I am welcoming and embracing my new life. A holier life, a life that is getting my closer to God. I believe God called me and I am answering His call. Starting with the obedience to His greatest commandment: " You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul and with all your mind." And so be it....Let God's will be done.

Here is my mom who has been a servant of God all her life. She has been a living example ever since she knew of God. She is my model.  And because she is a living example of a true follower of God, I have become what I am right now. Her faith have saved my soul in so many ways. I am grateful to her and I love her so much. 

I share this so you can join me in my devotion. I encourage you to visit this website to know more about Mary like standards and modesty in dressing. Being an example to others can save a lot of souls.

Sisterhood of the Traveling Rosary

Growing up my parents especially my mom, brought us up very close to God. We go to church on Sundays in our Sunday dresses. On Wednesdays, we go to Our Lady of Perpetual Help Shrine and pray the Novena and at home everyday we pray the rosary as a family, kneeling before the altar. Now we are all grown up living on our own with our families far away from each other. I miss those days when we almost do anything together as a family. Here in the US I have two sisters with me but still we are far from each other. To keep the family unity in faith. My sisters and I agreed to start the "Sisterhood of the Traveling Rosary." To bring back tradition of the family in prayer. There are standards to follow.  I would like to share them to all of you. Hoping you will also pray the rosary with your family. 

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Rosary
The purpose of this rosary is to spread the gospel of the Lord through the prayer and meditation of the rosary in fulfillment of the mission of Mother Mary and Mahal na Ingkong also known as the Holy Spirit and to strengthen our family’s faith and unity. As  you join this sisterhood, you pledge to perform at your best the following conditions:
The rosary packet contains the picture of Our Lady of All Nations, prayer and a white rosary. The visitation will be for seven days. In seven days you need to.....
  1. As soon as you receive it, place the picture of Our Lady of All Nation at your altar. 
  2. As you pray the rosary for seven days, use the white traveling rosary with it, recite the Our Lady of Nations prayer every after mystery and the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary after the mysteries.
  3. Wear a dress and a veil during the prayer, at best a white one.
  4. Light 3 white candles during the prayer.
