Happy Birthday Blog!

About Today 

I started The Mystic Review on my birthday in 2010 which makes it 13 years old today. Because my thinking has changed a lot over time, there are a lot of old posts that are unpublished. Some are going to stay that way. Others will be updated.  

I didn't really think about the significance of starting the blog on August 22nd back in 2010. But I am very aware of it now. 

That's because today, August 22nd, 2022, isn't just my birthday or the blog's. It's the feast of the Queenship of Mary.  The Queenship of Mary falls on the octave (8th day) after the Assumption and celebrates the coronation of Mary Queen of Heaven. 

I love everything about the Blessed Mother. I love her example and learning about the different Marian apparitions, and saying the Rosary. And I love invoking her many beautiful names.

Our Lady of Mercy. Our Lady of Fatima. Our Lady of Perpetual Help. Queen of Heaven. Mystic Rose. And, of course, Mary Queen of Angels. 

I was walking around my home town on Assumption Sunday 2 years ago when I took this picture.

Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee!
