The Children's Rosary® is a prayer group movement that was begun out of love for Our Lady and Her Son. Jesus tells us "Truly, I say to you unless you turn and become like children you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven" (Matthew 18:3). The Children's Rosary is an effort to begin in parishes rosary prayer groups composed of children and led by children. Through prayer of the Rosary Our Lady will guide our young people while at the same time sanctify families and Parishes.
With the recent closure of the Neumann Press the Children's Rosary book is in need of a new publisher. As the Children's Rosary continues to grow, there is more and more need for our book to once again be published. In times like this I know only one place to turn....more prayer. Our Lady and Our Lord surely have plans but like everything they need to be moved by fervent prayers to act. So I am once again humbly asking for prayers for Our Lord's plan to be realized. Please consider joining this 9 day novena to the Holy Spirit for a realization of God's plans for the Children's Rosary and the Children's Rosary book. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
Novena to the Holy Spirit
Dearest Holy Spirit, confiding in Your deep, personal love for me, I am making this novena for the following request, if it be Your Holy Will to grant it:(mention your request*).
Teach me, Divine Spirit, to know and seek my last end; grant me the holy fear of God; grant me true contrition and patience. Do not let me fall into sin. Give me an increase of faith, hope and charity, and bring forth in my soul all the virtues proper to my state in life.
Make me a faithful disciple of Jesus and an obedient child of the Church. Give me efficacious grace sufficient to keep the Commandments and to receive the Sacraments worthily.
Give me the four Cardinal Virtues, Your Seven Gifts, Your Twelve Fruits. Raise me to perfection in the state of life to which You have called me and lead me through a happy death to everlasting life.I ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen. (novena obtained from EWTN website)
