|First Meeting of the Children's Rosary|
at St. Pius Church in Wolcott, CT
This week Sandy and her children stopped at Good Will. One of the wonderful things about the Good Will store is that the inventory is donated so you never know what you are going to find. Often what is stocked in the store reflects the type of items found in the homes of those who live nearby. As Waterbury, CT is a strongly Catholic Community with many Churches and a strong faith occasionally one finds a real spiritual gem. This day was to be one of those special days.
After perusing through several piles her son commented on a large picture of a dragon. Her son picked it up and underneath a surprise... an icon of Our Blessed Mother of Czestochowa. Having just hosted Our Lady the prior weekend both Sandy and her son felt so honored to find their own icon of Our Lady. The blessings were far from over. Who might you guess was waiting for them just under some more paintings.....St. Pius. Just three days before their first Children's Rosary at St. Pius here he was ready to take home. These were the only two religious items that the children found that day. A coincidence...possibly but truly a wonderful grace for these little children who were so excited.
