Children's Rosary Group in Kenya Meets Twice a Day

Today we received an update on the Children's Rosary group at the orphanage at the St. Clare Center in Masimba, Kenya. Last fall we sent them rosaries and they officially began their Children's Rosary group on December 22nd 2019.

The children not only have continued to pray but now pray in the Children's Rosary each day at 6AM and 6PM at the orphanage. They wake up early each day and are happy to pray. They pray in English in the morning and they pray in Swahili in the evening. 
Please say a Hail Mary for the children and those that help the children at the Center.

Happy Feast of St. Anne and Joachim 2020!

Today we were able to attend Mass at St. Anne Shrine in Sturbridge, Massachusetts USA. Before Mass my daughter Alina, son Kontantin, and I prayed a Rosary. In a special way, we prayed for all the members of the Children's Rosary and all who help the Children's Rosary. A first class relic of St. Anne was brought out just before Mass began. We were able to venerate the relic and again I humbly prayed for all the members of the Children's Rosary and all who help the Children's Rosary as one of our intentions of the Rosary. A first class relic of St. Anne was brought out just before Mass. We were able to venerate the relic and again I humbly prayed for all the members of the Children's Rosary and all who help the Children's Rosary.

St. Anne and St. Joachim were grandparents of Jesus. Today we honor the important role of grandparents in the family. After Mass today my husband surprised us with a new puzzle. My mother very much enjoys doing puzzles with our kids on Sundays. The image on the puzzle seemed perfect given the Feast Day (see the picture below). It shows a grandfather reading the Bible to his grandson.

We thank all grandparents for all they do to pass on the faith. There are many grandparents who help with the Children's Rosary. Some make monetary donations, others run Children's Rosary groups and some make rosaries. Many pray for the Children's Rosary. We thank all who help! You are making a tremendous difference in the lives of children throughout the world including those young ones in your families.

Prayer to St. Anne to Obtain Some Special Favor

Recently we have been visiting St. Anne Shrine in Sturbridge, Massachusetts on Sundays for Mass which they hold in a large outside pavilion. On the property there is a special votive chapel and within this chapel we found a prayer to St. Anne to obtain some special favor. In anticipation of the Feast of St. Anne on July 26th we are including the prayer here. 

Glorious St. Anne, filled with compassion for those who invoke you and with love for those who suffer, heavily laden with the weight of my troubles, I cast myself at your feet and humbly beg of you to take the present affair which I recommend to you under your special protection.

Vouchsafe to recommend it to your daughter, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and lay it before the throne of Jesus, so that He may bring it to a happy issue. Cease not to intercede for me until my request is granted (Here ask for favor you with to obtain)

Above all, obtain for me the grace of one day beholding my God face to face, and with You and Mary and all the saints, praising and blessing Him through all eternity. Amen.

Good St. Anne, mother of her who is our life, our sweetness and our hope, pray to her for us and obtain our request. (Three times)

Global Rosary Relay for Priests 2020

Tomorrow is the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. It is also the World Day of Prayer for Priests. World Priests has organized a Global Rosary Relay for Priests which will be held on June 19th. This is the fifth year the Children's Rosary has been invited to participate in this event. Beginning in Siberia and spreading across the globe, every 15 to 20 minutes individuals at different Shrines will lead a Rosary for the sanctification of Priests. See the list of Shrines participating and the time they will lead the Rosary. Consider unifying in prayer with a Shrine to pray for the sanctification of priests. If we want holy priests we need to pray for them! Thank you all.

June 17th 2020: Feast of Bl. Marie Joseph Cassant

Today is the Feast of Bl. Marie Joseph Cassant. His personal motto was "All for Jesus, all through Mary." Bl. Cassant lived only 24 years but he was a witness of humility and meekness. His fellow monks acknowledged that he was ever happy and ever smiling. This despite his health was not good and tuberculosis caused him significant suffering towards the end of this life. We ask for his special intercession today.

In a special way prayers were said for all the members of the Children's Rosary and all who help the Children's Rosary while touching a first class relic of Bl. Cassant today.
