And the Winner is.....

This past month members of the Children's Rosary were invited to submit drawings of the Annunciation in anticipation of the Feast next month.  The deadline for pictures was February 25th.  

Recently a women contacted us hoping to help spread word of the Children's Rosary.  After reading more about the prayer group movement on our Spanish site she wrote to us with a generous offer.  She wanted to give the Children's Rosary a gift.  She wanted to offer one child per month for February, March and April 2015 the opportunity to pick one item from her website.   Maria also shared that she is originally from Mexico and was named after Our Lady of Guadalupe.  She now lives in California but has a deep devotion to Our Blessed Mother which began when she was a child.  In this small way she wanted to give back and help encourage more children to come together in prayer through the Children's Rosary prayer group movement.  During this past month pictures have been coming in.  On January 25th they were gathered and the names of the children were put on cards.  On January 26th after praying to the Holy Spirit to inspire the selection a child's name was randomly chosen.  Alek, age 8, from the Children's Rosary group at St. Thomas the Apostle Church in West Hartford, Connecticut USA was chosen.  Alek is pictured above at the Stations of the Cross last Friday where he helped the Children's Rosary in leading the readings at each Station.  Alek's mother shared that he had worked on the drawing all day during one of our recent snow days. It is a wonderful thing to see small children thinking and imagining what that moment was like for Our Blessed Mother when she humbly accepted God's Will for her.  

For those of you who would like to participate in our drawing submissions for March and April please see our earlier post HERE for directions.
