Reflections from the Children's Rosary at the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Waterbury, CT

Yesterday the weather was hot and sticky with temperatures in the 90s.  Despite the heat in the Basilica there was a wonderful turnout for the Children's Rosary with several new families joining them.  Deacon McDermott, the seminarian from Holy Apostles helping at the Basilica this year, joined the children for the Rosary which was a wonderful addition.  The Children's Rosary group leader at the Basilica had the good fortune several months ago of stumbling on a wonderful collection of religious statues at a thrift store.  She was able to buy the statues and she and her children washed them all up.  The cleaning revealed they were all in good condition and she decided she would use them for a little free statue raffle at the Children's Rosary.  With her permission I am including the little note she sent me yesterday,

The Statues all washed and clean
"Also at our statue raffle, we had children win statues in such a providential manor. It seems God has His hands in even the little things of life. A little girl who loves to fold her hands just so won the praying hands statue. Her brother thought that was perfect. A family that just said a novena to the Infant of Prague won a statue of Him. God is so good! A boy named after St. Joseph won a statue of him!"
