Pentecost through the Eyes of a Child

Submitted by Abigail age 6
This past month members of the Children's Rosary were invited to submit handmade pictures of the third Glorious Mystery of the Rosary: The Descent of the Holy Spirit.  This was in  anticipation of Pentecost.  The deadline for submission was April 25th.  Each picture was entered in the random drawing.

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 www.rosariodeninos.org 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. This inspired this little invitation to submit drawings which we called Let Us Be One.

This month the winner of our random drawing was Brigid age 10.  She has been a very active member of the Children's Rosary for several years.  We plan to feature her picture on the Feast of Pentecost.  As there were so many beautiful pictures that came in from different children we would like to highlight some of them here.  It is a beautiful thing to see the simplicity and insight children have into the mysteries of our faith.  There is a joy with how they see Our Lord.  One is reminded of Jesus' words in the Gospel. "I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth for although you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to the childlike" (Mt 11:25)
