Ideas para el mes de mayo: Avemarías cada día

Nos gustaría compartir algunas ideas sobre como hacer que su mes de mayo sea muy especial. Es una práctica maravillosa tratar de dar a Nuestra Bendita Madre pequeños regalos a través del día. Considera orando tres Ave Marías al principio de cada hora por nueve horas consecutivas por las intenciónes de Nuestra Señora cada día.

Mira nuestro nuevo video AQUÍ.
Por favor considera compartiendo estos videos con su familia y amigos. Hagamos que este tiempo mientras estamos confinados en nuestra casa sea lleno de memorias especiales y tradiciones nuevas. Estamos muy emocionados de tener Asher compartiendo las ideas en los videos. Algunas veces es refrescante para los niños cuando escuchan una invitación a orar desde otra persona joven.

Novena to the Holy Spirit 2020

Novena to the Holy Spirit
Dearest Holy Spirit, confiding in Your deep, personal love for me, I am making this novena for the following request, if it be Your Holy Will to grant it:(mention your request*). 
Teach me, Divine Spirit, to know and seek my last end; grant me the holy fear of God; grant me true contrition and patience. Do not let me fall into sin. Give me an increase of faith, hope and charity, and bring forth in my soul all the virtues proper to my state in life.
Make me a faithful disciple of Jesus and an obedient child of the Church. Give me efficacious grace sufficient to keep the Commandments and to receive the Sacraments worthily. 
Give me the four Cardinal Virtues, Your Seven Gifts, Your Twelve Fruits.
Raise me to perfection in the state of life to which You have called me and lead me through a happy death to everlasting life.
I ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen. 
(novena obtained from EWTN website)
*May the Holy Spirit blow through our hearts, families, parish and the Children's Rosary as in the first Pentecost bringing us a renewed Spirit of prayer and love of God and neighbor. 


The Friday after Ascension Thursday is the day Mary and the Apostles began the very first novena to the Holy Spirit.  May we too begin a novena calling down the Spirit to blow through our hearts, families, and parishes as in the first Pentecost bringing a renewed Spirit of prayer and love of God and neighbor.
The photo above was taken on Divine Mercy Sunday of this year. The prior day we had, had snow in Connecticut and on Divine Mercy Sunday it was very warm with many trees in full bloom for spring. The sun was beating down on the two snowmen. Children had clearly worked hard to make these magnificent creations. Yet a thought kept coming: there is no time to lose. When you look at a snowman in the sun, you feel time passing and you are acutely aware that with each passing minute more of the snowman is gone. By the afternoon, the littler of the snowmen had only two bumps and was disappearing fast. 
We have precious time these days. Many are home with their families. Let us take this time to pray. Following in the example of Our Blessed Mother and the apostles, let us prepare for the Holy Feast of Pentecost in prayer. The Novena to the Holy Spirit is one way to prepare ourselves. We hope you will join us in prayer.

100th Birthday of St. John Paul II

May 18th 2020 is the 100th Birthday of St. John Paul II. Our Children's Rosary books, CDs and DVD are dedicated to the Holy Trinity, Our Blessed Mother and in gratitude for the intercession of St. John Paul II. We have always found St. John Paul II to be a great friend to the Children's Rosary. As today was approaching the Children's Rosary began to get many special favors. We found out that EWTN will be airing the Children's Rosary in the US today at 4:30 PM Eastern Time. Next we heard that EWTN Español will be re-airing the Nuestra Fe en Vivo interview about the Children's Rosary with Asher from 2017. This interview originally helped to spread the Children's Rosary (Rosario de Niños) through many Spanish speaking countries. There are also several projects we have been working on that seem to have taken a big step forward in the last day. 

Here is some information if you would like to learn more about starting a Children's Rosary prayer group in your parish, school or orphanage.

Deeply Rooted

On Friday May 15th, the Feast of St. Isidore the farmer, we decided to harvest one of the parsnips from our garden. When my daughter tried to pull it up, the lush green top ripped off. Apparently this parsnip wasn't going to come out easily. She then began digging around the edge of the root. She is very strong and despite all her pulling it still would not come out. She began using a stick to loosen the soil and with her fingers excavated around the root. This process when on for some time. Eventually the root came out. It was impressive. The root was about 10 inches long. My husband thought this one root would be enough for 5 of us to have with our dinner tonight. 

In reflecting on this parsnip, there are some interesting things to consider. If one were to plant a parsnip in the late spring which is usually when farmers plant parsnips the plants have warm weather to grow and when harvest comes they are easy to harvest and not nearly as long as the one my daughter pulled out last Friday. So what is the difference? Well, this parsnip began growing last season, most likely in the fall. It survived a cold winter and set down deep roots. As with most plants that are able to survive the winter, such as kale, as soon as the weather turns warm they shoot up and try to make seeds. They do not waste any time. 

In many ways one could see how suffering has a similar effect on us and our faith. When we have been tested and come through challenges we are more deeply rooted. We also value time and want to pass on that faith in a special way. We do not put off passing on that faith to our children but set to work right away.  When our roots are deep many things may try to push against us and uproot us but this is not so easy. Many may be suffering during these times of the Coronavirus pandemic but what effect has on the roots of our faith?

How to Plan a Home Marian Procession

Watch our new Children's Rosary video explaining how to plan a Home Marian Procession by clicking on the link HERE.

The following are the 4 basic steps to holding a Home Marian Procession:
1) A statue or picture of Our Blessed Mother is carried to each room of the home. 
2) A Marian hymn can be played or sung during the Procession.
3) There is the optional use of holy water that can be sprinkled through the house as one processes. Members of the family can also carry candles.
4) After each room is visited, Our Lady can be brought to where the procession was begun. At this point the family can say prayers such as the Rosary. One may even consider crowning Our Lady with a crown of fresh flowers especially if the procession is held during the month of May. 

Consider holding a Marian Procession during the month of May which is dedicated to Our Blessed Mother. It is also a wonderful tradition to hold a monthly Marian procession with your children. Choose a Marian feast each month and have the youngest person in the family help lead the Procession. Customize it according to your family. To help enjoy the feast, bake some muffins or a dessert. This is always a welcome addition to enjoy after the procession with your children.
