" is a place where people can gather to listen, learn, and sing prayers to our Lord and His Blessed Mother," Bailey says. She is looking to build a community around the sung rosary project she is releasing, Mary Queen of Peace Meditation Guide & Sung Rosary.

Through blogging, podcasting and videos, offers many different kinds of prayer opportunities. Visitors can read and respond to the Shared Insights blog where Bailey and other guest authors share history and spiritual experiences inspired by the rosary and other sung prayers, plus the writings of saints such as Louis de Montfort.

Videos, songs and sung rosary prayers from Bailey's Mary Queen of Peace Meditation Guide & Sung Rosary are available on each page.

Bailey shares beautiful photos of paintings, icons, stained glass windows and art she has created herself on the Photo Gallery page.

The Marian Cenacle Rosary Podcast offers visitors an opportunity to pray the rosary along with the podcast. Accessible through an easy-to-use player, the podcast follows a special format as Bailey explains: "It is set up to follow exactly the format of the Marian Movement of Priests cenacle, founded by Fr. Stefano Gobbi. It includes the rosary (some parts sung), prayers offered for Pope Benedict XVI, a reading selected from Fr. Gobbi's book, To the Priests, and it ends with a consecration to Mary."

Participants can leave prayer requests on a special prayer forum on the site, plus leave stories of blessings and prayers answered. "It's important to gather people together to pray," Bailey says, "and equally important to let the world know how God answers prayers through the Blessed Mother."

Bailey freely admits that part of the purpose of the website is to promote her Mary Queen of Peace Meditation Guide & Sung Rosary book and CD which is available for sale on the site. She adds though, "I truly desire to build a community around this sung rosary and other forms of sung prayer using the New Media forms of blogging, podcasting and videos. Our Blessed Mother wishes for everyone to know about the immense blessings that come from praying the rosary and meditating on the Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious and Luminous mysteries, and I hope this site helps towards that end."
