First Children's Rosary at St. Peter's Church in Higganum, Connecticut USA

First Children's Rosary at St. Peter Church in Higganum CT
Recently I received pictures from the first meeting of the Children's Rosary at St. Peter's Church in Higganum, Connecticut USA.  This new group met on Saturday June 6th 2015. They began their meeting by Consecrating their group to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary.  In this way the group is under the protection and guidance of Christ and His Mother.

They had three children attend and met outside before a beautiful statue of Our Lady.  At the end of the Rosary the children took the flowers they had placed at the foot of Our Lady in between each decade and collected them.  
Lucy and Eve carefully placed all the roses in a vase before Our Lady and Baby Jesus inside the Church to remain all week. Lucy pictured below in blue also holds their intention box which was placed before them as they met.  One of the intentions present in the box was for all the members of the Children's Rosary as well as the intentions of Our Blessed Mother.  It is beautiful to think of more and more little groups all over the world.  Their prayers twinkling as if tiny stars gleaming up toward heaven.  

There was another unexpected gift given that day.  We had another group of children meeting for the first time as a Children's Rosary.  These children were meeting at the Benedictine Monastery of Thien Tam in Kerens, Texas USA.  A member of the Children's Rosary was speaking on behalf of the Children's Rosary at the Eucharistic Conference and had helped organize this Children's Rosary.  As both groups were scheduled to meet at the exact same time I ask them to pray for each other, unifying prayers.  A wonderful note came back from Joan Alix in Texas.  She was deeply touched that the new group meeting at the same time was from Higganum CT as this had been her home for many years before moving to her current home in Florida.  The name of the group leader also was farmiliar to her as she had taught members of that family years ago when she was a teacher in Connecticut.  Indeed there was the beautiful Divine Thread weaving people together thousands of miles apart.  Over and over one marvels at the way Our Lord and His Mother can touch hearts and make us all feel so connected.
