As the Year of Mercy is ending there is exiting news to share. Through God's infinite Mercy He has seen to give us the grace to complete our new Children's Rosary Website (www.childrensrosary.org) which will supplement our current Children's Rosary blog. This site represents the fruits of the prayers of a great many members of the Children's Rosary which include children in groups around the world. There has been sacrifice, fasting and love of Our Lord that kept the project moving forward. But only through the grace of God could it be completed. The site brings to life A View from Heaven.
May I humbly share the origins of A View from Heaven? This was something that lived in my heart for many years. The children tried to make a cloth version which was only a glimpse of what exists now. Many road blocks and obstacles came in trying to realize this image. Yet nothing would deter us. We had a childlike confidence that God would provide everything that was needed...and so He did. He provided everything. It took time... yes it took years, but today on the Feast of Christ the King we can present it to the world. We take none of the credit for ourselves as God did everything. Any missteps, yes, these were ours alone. We do not know if it will be used by just a few or more. This is also known to God alone. But for our part we simply share it with all of you as well as any soul who feels moved to unify prayers with members of the Children's Rosary.
As we are just releasing this new site we are inviting groups to register and enter their meetings times. Over the coming weeks we pray that a View from Heaven becomes alive with lights of group meetings and those unifying prayers with the children. A schedule is also present next to the map listing when upcoming meetings will be held. Please visit the site often and unify prayers with groups and other members of the Children's Rosary praying.
Registered GroupsFor those who would like to see all registered Children's Rosary groups on our map please click on the red dot in the legend under the map on our website and the view of registered groups will display. As you can see from the image above we are just beginning the registration process for existing groups.
This new website also brings a great many other resources to groups and visitors. We will be highlighting some of these individually below.
