Recently we introduced a new weekly highlight on the Children's Rosary Blog: Words from the Children Wednesdays. As the Children's Rosary is a prayer movement composed of children and led by children we would like to begin highlighting some of the beautiful feedback we have been getting from the children from our different Children's Rosary groups.
Recently I reached out to the different Children's Rosary groups and asked for their help. The Children's Rosary had a booth at the Catholic Marketing Network(CMN) Trade Show in New Jersey USA from August 7th-9th. It was our hope that the children could provide the voice of the movement by creating visuals and phrases to briefly describe WHY THE CHILDREN'S ROSARY IS IMPORTANT.
The pictures have been coming in by mail from all over the country. They were all so beautiful in their own unique way it seemed like a perfect way to begin our Words From the Children Wednesdays. More beautiful original artwork to come over the upcoming weeks. Please if you are a child and would like to submit a picture or message see our contact information and send it in. We will be featuring them here.
The drawing above was done by Emma age 11 who is a member of the Children's Rosary at St. Thomas Church in Thomaston, CT USA. (This is also the Parish where Ven. Father McGivney who founded the Knights of Columbus was assigned during his short life).
Emma helped begin the Children's Rosary at St Thomas Parish with her grandmother. They have chosen to hold their meetings weekly which has been a tremendous blessing for the group.
Tomorrow we celebrate the Queenship of Mary and Emma's picture seemed to beautifully honor Our Mother Mary who is Queen of Heaven and Earth. The Children's Rosary helps to bring our Children to Our Heavenly Mother and through the prayers of the Rosary a true love develops within the children for their Blessed Mother. It is a beautiful thing to see in our sweet children.
A special thank you to Emma for her inspiring drawing.
God Bless you all!
