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 Grace age 7 from Thomaston, Connecticut USA. Grace is a member of the Children's Rosary at St. Thomas Church. Their group has chosen to meet weekly after the Sunday Mass. Grace's picture beautifully captures how much love she feels for the Rosary. No one can mistake the joy behind this drawing. How pleasing must the prayers that come from this small soul be to Our Lord who waits patiently for these little ones to come to Him.
On these last days of October, a month dedicated to the Rosary, may we rejoice that there are children that have made their way to Our Lady and the Rosary and have found such love and comfort through these beautiful prayers. Amen.
