* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Ways to honor Mother Mary
« on: August 08, 2013, 08:43:18 am »
I've started to feel close to Mother Mary recently so I decided to pray the rosary. I tried to do it a few times and it just did not feel right, it felt awkward to me. Are there any other prayers/devotions or other ways to honor her?

you might try just using the marian prayers, instead of the the full rosary.  The rosary is just a method to get your head into the prayers.  So just try the individual prayers alone and see how you get along with them.

I don't know if it might be too Christian for you, but The Psalter of the Blessed Virgin Mary, available online, has 150 psalms of adoration to Mother Mary, all based on the biblical 150 psalms.  You may find at least a few that would work for you as prayers, or you could adapt them to better express your own beliefs if needed.

I do pray the Rosary, but I have also written my own devotion to Mary, performed on the full moon (Mary and the moon are associated in Marian literature and theology) centering around communing with Mary, drinking her divine milk.

Depending on your particular practice and relationship with Mary, you might consider writing your own devotions and possibly include offerings.

Author Doreen Virtue recently wrote a book on Mother Mary called Mary, Queen of Angels. It's full of different prayers and other ways to honor her, you might like to check it out.
