the prayers of a modern mary

about me

G’day, I’m MaryClare (she/her). I’m a misfit that loves Jesus, but am more the obnoxious loudmouth than I am sweet church lady. You know the story of Jesus leaving the 99 to go fetch the one? The one is me, and I’m so thankful.

I’m a mixture of Anglo-Catholic and not knowing what the hell I’m doing but I know that Jesus knows and I just need to follow the bloke.

I came to Jesus through the Eucharist, and I came back to Jesus through the Eucharist. I’ve had many conversion moments, and I’m sure there will be many more. My journey has been complicated but JC and his mom have always been there.

what you will find here

I write about spirituality, and offer prayers I’ve written, rosary tutorials, resources for prayer, and news of upcoming work.


I believe in the words of the nicene creed, affirm and embrance LGBTQ people, and believe that God loves everyone.

With God’s help, I shall become myself
~ Soren Kierkegaard

most recent writing

I commend my soul to God my Creator, who made me of nothing and created me in the divine image; to Jesus my Savior, who loves me and gave himself for me; to the Holy Spirit, by whom I was sealed in baptism and who sanctifies me; into thy hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.

Introduction to the Rosary #1

Introduction to the Rosary #2

The Introduction to the Rosary video series is designed for those with no experience whatsoever with the rosary. Each video is less than three minutes long and can be found on either YouTube or TikTok. I hope that learning to pray the rosary will be as significant to you as it was to me. The rosary is where Mary shows us her son, Jesus.
