The Children's Rosary at Our Lady of Fatima Parish in Hartford, CT USA will be meeting today at 4:00PM ET. As today is the Feast of the Triumph of the Cross we hope many will feel moved to join the children in prayer either at the Church or from your home. The children always pray for all those unifying their prayers with them.
Some weeks ago during a novena to Pope John Paul II, I happened on this picture of John Paul taken during his trip to the United States. There was something so wonderful about this image. As if the Holy Father was being supported by Our Crucified Lord and hence the whole Church rested on the strength of the Cross. As Pope John Paul II so loved the Holy Rosary it is my prayer today that he will join us at 4PM in prayer of the Holy Rosary with Our Blessed Mother. May we embrace Our Lord on the cross and hold Him to our own heart. For Our Lord said when He was lifted up, He would draw all men to Himself. On this beautiful Feast of the Triumph of the Cross may a great many souls today be brought to the loving embrace of Our Savior who so beautifully showed us His Love to the end.
