Beginning this past Tuesday and for the following 9 Days we are highlighting ways people can get involved and help the Children's Rosary. For those unfamiliar with the Children's Rosary, the Children's Rosary is a prayer group movement for children. It is an effort to begin in parishes, schools and orphanages Rosary prayer groups composed of children. These groups meet regularly to pray a Rosary as a prayer group. Some groups meet monthly, weekly or in some places daily. The children in the groups traditionally range in age from 4-14. But any child with an interest to attend should not be turned away especially those with disabilities who may be older. Children younger then 4 can also attend. More and more there is an appreciation of the benefit young children can receive from praying and seeing other children praying at a very tender age.
Today we would like to invite people to donate handmade Rosaries to the Children's Rosary. We are very grateful to the people who have made Rosaries and sent them to the Children's Rosary. Yet, the demand continues to increase with more new groups forming throughout the world especially in places like Pakistan, Vietnam, Tanzania, Uganda and the Philippines. It gives us great joy to be able to send little ones handmade rosaries.
The children package the boxes and carry them to the post office to be sent around the world. Indeed there is much tender love and care that goes into what is sent out. Boxes are prayed over before they leave our house.
We also try to make Rosaries available to any Children's Rosary group forming even ones that might be able to afford to purchase them. In those cases we ask for a donation to go toward the postage if possible. We would like all children to have the opportunity to receive handmade Rosaries. It is just another way the children can be connected together and experience the love of others.
If you would like to send Rosaries to the Children's Rosary these can be sent to:
A Child Makes a Request that Seems Impossible, but Is It?
A Journey to Bring the Baby Jesus to the Children
Don't forget to unify prayers with the children during their meetings. A schedule of meetings is present on our website. By clicking "Join in Prayer" you can add your gold flashing light to our View from Heaven map.
