Children's Rosary Book Available in Braille

We are very excited to share that our Children's Rosary book in English is now available in Braille through the Xavier Society.   

The Xavier Society is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 1900 in New York City USA. Its mission is simple: to make writings on religion and spirituality available to the blind. This is continued today. All materials available to the blind through the Xavier Society are free.  One only needs to register with them and both braille and audio materials can be sent throughout the United States and in some cases abroad.  

Our Children's Rosary book and Glorious Mysteries Cd which contains our theme song Rosary Children are now available through the Xavier Society and they have offered to make these available to both Domestic requests and those outside the United States as well.  

The timing of this braille transcription of our English Children's Rosary book is perfect as a request had just come two weeks ago from a blind women wanting to begin a Children's Rosary prayer group in her parish.  She was requesting Braille materials and so beautifully these are now available.

Looking back to our first meetings of the Children's Rosary many of the children who attended had disabilities and even as founder of the Children's Rosary, I myself have a disability involving my joints.  As the Pastor of my parish is fond of saying, every set back is a set up for the glory of God.  There has been an appreciation that Our Lord is calling all His children to Him.  In a special way, those with disabilities must have a tender place in His heart.  To have materials for blind children and those with disabilities that allow them to participate in the Children's Rosary is very important to us.  In this way we are celebrating this new Braille transcription as we hope it will be an invitation to more children especially those who may be blind to join the Children's Rosary.  

We also would like to humbly ask those who may be blind to prayerfully consider beginning a Children's Rosary prayer group in their parish.  

We thank all of you for your prayers.  This gift of the an English Braille transcription of our book is a special gift and one that is the fruit of many prayers.
