prayers of a modern mary
My name is MaryClare. That’s not the name I was born with, it’s the name God gave to me.
I’m a writer who is intimately acquainted with horror in a sinister and evil way. Having lived for over three decades at the intersection of the monstrous and sacred, darkness has been my friend. I’m now walking in the light of Christ.
I’m spiritually intuitive, and live my spirituality through prayer, mysticism, liturgy, Eucharist, and writing. I’m one of the annoying Anglo-Catholic Episcopalians, and I have a unique ability to make priests facepalm, swear, or give me a special blessing using their middle finger.
I’m certainly not your ordinary kind of person. I grew up in a cult and what could only be described as a horror flick. This left me with a great need for Jesus, 12-step recovery, mental and chronic illnesses, and a need to discover who God created me to be.
My best spiritual formation has happened through prayer, hence the name Formed by Prayer.
