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 Anna age 6 who helped begin a Children's Rosary with her older sister at Our Lady of Fatima Parish in Hartford, CT USA. It seemed a beautiful day to highlight Anna's picture as we had two new Children's Rosary groups consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and Sacred Heart of Jesus this past Saturday and another new group also met for the first time this past Monday on the Feast of the Holy Rosary. All the new Children's Rosary groups consecrate their group to the two hearts on their first meeting. In this way they are under the protection and guidance of Christ and His Mother. We also have many groups who have chosen to hold their monthly meetings on the First Friday or First Saturday in consolation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Thank you Anna for your inspiring drawing.
