Blog Anniversary

Today is the one year anniversary of The Beautiful Gate. I deliberately started it in June last year because June is the month of the Sacred Heart. Originally, my first post was going to put up on June 19th in honor of the feast day but I got impatient and started early :)  Thank you all for your encouragement and support! May God bless each and every one of you!


  1. Happy Anniversary, Mary! Thanks for all your wonderful posts and for sharing your insights with us.
    May God continue to bless and inspire your writing.

  2. Congratulations! Welcome to the first year club :-)

    God bless.

  3. Thanks Karin! It's been a great year!

    Thank you! I just got off your site. I must have been there while you were here:)

  4. Congratulations and well done.

  10. Thanks Esther! I'm glad I started, too. I've met so many wonderful people and have learned so much from all of you :)

    By the way - what are RSS feeds?!

    Just kidding! (I'll just pull out my Blogging for Dummies book. I really do have this book... I just prefer to push random buttons and see what happens!)

  11. Victor,
    I appreciate your comments and feedback on my blog.
    Colleen says we must STOP, though. We are killing her ;)
    The Mortification post is giving her chest pains I think. LOL

  12. Thank you so much Mary for writing this wonderful blog! Happy Anniversary, and many more!

  13. Anne,
    Thank you, too! Your blog has inspired me immensely over the past year. It was one of the first blogs that I read! As a matter of fact, I think your blog and Nancy's blog are the first two I followed!

  14. Happy 1st year blog anniversary Mary! I am so happy I found your blog (and you). It has brought sunshine to my blogging visits and I am always inspired...even when wires in our brazziers is the topic going ;)
