As Paul led us in the Rosary I looked at little Charlotte with a little white coat and patent leather white shoes a bit scratched which suggested that although she was very shy she was no stranger to some wonderful outdoor play. As little Charlotte knelt all the way up with her head bowed and fingers carefully counting the beads I noticed something. Her little leg began to shake a bit yet she did not kneel down. She was doing all she could to kneel up. What a beautiful little heart to give so much to her Heavenly Mother and her beloved Son. Such little prayers from such a little soul but undoubtedly an immense affect on the flow of grace to her own family, the Children's Rosary and the world. For we do not want to hold onto any of these graces rather we would like to be like a sieve, that as graces flow down, they spill out to all around us. Such prayers can help to bring Peace. For Our Lady of Fatima told the children, pray the Rosary to bring Peace. Oh how dearly we need peace today.
Another touching story I heard yesterday from another Children's Rosary group leader. She was at her Children's Rosary with her grandson this past weekend. He is just 4 years old. Yet he asked his grandmother if he could be one of the leaders this month. After the Children's Rosary they stayed to pray before the Blessed Sacrament *. It was then that she heard a noise from her grandson and thought he had sneezed so she blessed him. He then said Grammy I didn't sneeze I was blowing kisses to Jesus.
What must our loving Lord think when a little one just four has come before Him in the Blessed Sacrament prayed the Rosary with his Heavenly Mother and now with a full heart of love blows Him kisses. Oh it is very good for all of us to be sure. So much love and mercy must be released from such a pure act of love.
*This group has chosen to hold their Children's Rosary in front of the Blessed Sacrament.
Over the next few days we have many Children's Rosary groups meeting. Please consider joining the children in prayer. The children always pray for those unifying prayers with them.
