New Children's Rosary in Nairobi Kenya
FIRST INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN'S ROSARY
Almost every day this week during Mass the priest has repeated the phrase
"Oh God, whose providence never fails in its designs". So often as things with the Children's Rosary unfold these words come to mind. One such moment was when I was recently contacted by an individual from Kenya inquiring about a pdf file on how to pray the rosary. In corresponding with her I became aware that by Divine Providence she had stumbled on the Children's Rosary website looking for materials to teach a group of about 25 children how to pray the rosary. A short time before the Feast of the Holy Trinity I would find out her parish was also named after the Holy Trinity.
After a successful meeting to teach the children how to pray the rosary she was left feeling like she wanted to do more. Her reading about the Children's Rosary seemed to be that direction for which she was searching.
The date of the first international meeting of the Children's Rosary is so beautifully scheduled on the Memorial of the Immaculate Heart of Mary: June 8th. As the Children's Rosary is consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary it is a wonderful blessing to have our first international meeting held on a day honoring the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
We pray that with this blessing of our new Children's Rosary in Kenya this will begin the spread of the Children's Rosary to many countries beyond the borders of the United States.
