Saint Bernadette Champion of the Rosary
Today is the Feast of St. Bernadette. The picture above my daughter drew of St Bernadette with the Rosary surrounding her. Indeed the Rosary was something that she carried with her always.
Today we received a note from Tran (age 16) who lives in Vietnam. He has a first class relic of St. Bernadette and offered to pray for all the members of the Children's Rosary before the relic. With the Feast of St. Bernadette today and the Feast of Jacinta and Fancisco of Fatima on Monday February 20th, it is beautiful to contemplate how Our Lady chooses to speak to the world through children. Their role is crucial it would seem in bringing hearts back to God. With rosaries in hand they will lead. We continue to see this unfolding throughout the world with the Children's Rosary. Regions where prayer has weakened or fallen away the children are bringing it back. Through their tender voices and innocent hearts they are re-kindling it.
The children wanted to share someone else in our home that is a Champion of the Rosary. His name is Baby and he is our 14 year old cat. While he is seen below taking a particular interest in a statue of St. Bernadette and Our Lady of Lourdes he also makes a routine of joining the children for their prayers. It may be that the prayer room where we say our prayers is also where his bed is located but still we feel his presence during prayers is special.
