Anything is Possible with God

Today I share with you something that has brought wonder to my heart to watch.  It is a little tomato plant that has found its home in the tiniest crack in the mortar of our brick front steps to our home.  Looking at this lush plant my heart began to see this plant as resembling a soul...a soul that has known suffering.

The source of this plant seems to come directly from
within the mortar of the brick steps.
Sometimes adversity and the harshest conditions strengthen a soul and yield something that can withstand the most trying of conditions...drought, poor light, little nutrients.

Despite all odds the soul sets roots that go deep and in all things it bends toward the light.  Others marvel at such a sight as most would think it impossible to bear fruits under such conditions.  Yet it is this humble soul that through divine providence finds sufficient nutrients to continue to grow and indeed develop thick branches strong enough to be pushed down without permanent affect.  Indeed some might begin to see the unlikely home of this soul as most perfectly suited for no one can reach its source and its roots are completely protected from destruction.  The poor light due to the large trees actually provides shade in the long summer days without rain.  The plants or souls found in the traditional gardens have little protection as the sun beats down and little rain falls.  The little seed that seemed ill-placed now appears to have produced one of the strongest plants in the yard.  Having survived so much adversity it continues to grow through all the trials that befall it.  The wisdom of the sower can now be seen.  It is through the souls persistence and trust that the Sower can now be more beautifully glorified.  

Indeed being close to nature and agriculture one sees the Gospels come alive.  Our Lord shows us the wonder that exists through His creations.  How can this be that such a seed bears fruits and those that are planted in a garden with ideal conditions produce less?  Those reading this who have been cultivated through suffering may find great consolation in this thought.  It would seem the trials were not meant to hurt the little soul but actually to have strengthened it.

Mass Offered Today for Seminarians

Today a Mass was offered for all seminarians that they will grow in holiness and lead us all in love.  This is something the Children's Rosary does on the first of each month. As our seminarians will be the future shepherds and our children are the future flock it seemed a beautiful way for the children to help. 

For the upcoming year this monthly Mass for seminarians has been sponsored by the Children's Rosary held at Sacred Heart Church in Middleboro, Massachusetts (pictured left).  We are very grateful to this group for such an important gift.
The Mass today was celebrated at Sacred Heart Church in Middleboro, Massachusetts USA.

Mass Offered Today for Members of the Children's Rosary

Children's Rosary of St. Michael the Archangel Parish in
Langatta Nairobi, Kenya. The children meet each Saturday in Kibera slum.
Today a Mass was offered by the Capuchin Friars for all the members of the Children's Rosary and all those who help the Children's Rosary.  We continue to have a Mass said for the this intention on the 25th of each month. The Eucharist is such a powerful gift from Our Lord that when I wanted to extend thanksgiving to you all I knew of no better way to express my gratitude.  May Our Lord's love be poured down on all of you through the powerful sacrifice of the Holy Mass.

Hear From the Children

Recently we received some feedback from the children who are members of the Children's Rosary in Pakistan.  These children meet daily as a Children's Rosary prayer group.  These children pray in the Church but also have felt called to go and pray with the poor and sick families each day.  The children share what this has meant to them.  

Maryam!
I am youngest in my siblings, since I have joined Rosary Group my life is changed I get up early in the morning and start my day with prayer. My family wonders that how it has happened... I was a lazy girl and not good at prayers but now they see different good changes in me... Babu Chand invited me to join Rosary Group and gave me a Rosary to keep with me all the time... Now I feel that God wants something to be done by my hands... and I am trying to give my best for that,,,....

Yashwa!
When I take part in the prayer which is for a sick person,.... I feel that words are dropping spontaneously from my mouth. I am very happy to join Rosary Group and I daily wait for the time when we get together and recite Rosary....

Muskan!
Earlier I was finding it hard because I did not know the mysteries of Rosary but with the passage of time I learned them by heart and now I am happy and go for reciting Rosary door to door daily and attend the prayer for the sick people.....

It is beautiful to see how participating in this prayer group has helped these children so much and in different ways for the good.  

The Children's Rosary is spreading in a grassroots way from region to region and country to country.  Please help us reach your parish.

Going Out To Pray With the Poor


The Children's Rosary groups continues to grow in Pakistan with a second Children's Rosary group in St. Joseph Church in Ashraf Town.  This group meets daily. The children of this group felt moved to not only meet and pray in the Church but also to go out and pray with the sick and also the poor families.  As they go out each day to pray with a different family they share the very little they have giving away the rosaries that have been shared with them.  The group leader has told us that these families are so grateful for the rosaries.  The children check in with the families they have prayed with and they find the families are continuing to say the Rosary daily.  The children are slowly transforming this town with their prayers and the joy and comfort they bring. 
The picture above is of an older man whom the children prayed with one afternoon.  The children all gathered before him kneeling together to pray. 
The Children's Rosary in Pakistan is a beautiful unfolding story.  Please see how it all began and continues to spread.

We are very excited that EWTN will be airing the Children's Rosary today (August 18th) at 4:30 PM ET in  the United States and Canada.  We are very grateful that EWTN has added the Children's Rosary to its monthly programming schedule.

Upcoming dates have been released through September:

August 18th Children's Rosary Sorrowful Mysteries at 4:30 PM ET
September 3rd Children's Rosary Luminous Mysteries at 4:30 PM ET
(We anticipate the Glorious Mysteries to be shown in October)

The Children's Rosary can be viewed LIVE streaming from anywhere in the world today at 4:30 PM ET LINK
Many have helped to make these videos a reality.  Children and members from around the world have prayed for the completion and release of these videos as they represent a window into a Children's Rosary prayer group.  Few adults can remember growing up as a child in a prayer group.  Yet children have a large capacity for prayer and have a need for their prayer life to be supported.  We hope that these new videos show the beauty and deep faith that exists in the hearts of children and the simplicity and love they bring to prayer.  We hope many hearts will be touched by the innocence of these little ones.

A special thank you to Jim Morlino of Navis Pictures for filming our Children's Rosary video series. We also thank Robert Fertitta for contributing many beautiful photographs of stained glass windows for the Sorrowful Video which will air today. 

We plan to release a Children's Rosary DVD by October 1st which will contain all four mysteries shown on EWTN plus an additional bonus instructional video of how to begin a Children's Rosary prayer group and how to organize your first meeting with answers to frequently asked questions. Please continue to keep the completion of the DVD in your prayers.
