Two week ago we introduced a new weekly highlight on the Children's Rosary Blog: Words from the Children Wednesdays. As the Children's Rosary is a prayer movement composed of children and led by children we would like to begin highlighting some of the beautiful feedback we have been getting from the children from our different Children's Rosary groups.
Recently I reached out to the different Children's Rosary groups and asked for their help. The Children's Rosary had a booth at the Catholic Marketing Network(CMN) Trade Show in New Jersey USA from August 7th-9th. It was our hope that the children could provide the voice of the movement by creating visuals and phrases to briefly describe WHY THE CHILDREN'S ROSARY IS IMPORTANT.
The pictures have been coming in by mail from all over the country. They were all so beautiful in their own unique way it seemed like a perfect way to begin our Words From the Children Wednesdays. More beautiful original artwork to come over the upcoming weeks. Please if you are a child and would like to submit a picture or message see our contact information and send it in. We will be featuring them here.
The drawing above was done by Vera age 8 who helped to begin the Children's Rosary at St. Joseph Church in Adrian, Michigan USA with her mother and siblings. As this week we celebrate the Assumption of Mary it seemed fitting to feature one of the pictures which honors Our Mother. Who better to help our children reach her Son then Our Blessed Mother. Who would want to be separated from her. It is with her Rosary that she keeps a tight and protective hold on our children anchoring them always to the cross and her Son.
