Why Does Our Lord Choose to Work Through the Humble?

Scripture tells us, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness". (2 Corinthians 12:8) Indeed it seems Our Lord often chooses those that have been humbled to work through.  In this way His hand can be seen most clearly.  Our Lord also shows us the wonderful blessings that come through our weakness.  For when we realize we cannot do it alone then Our Lord strengthens us and gives us those that can help us in doing His work.  

Over the past months I have been receiving notes from a new Children's Rosary group leader from Ohio named Betty.  She is blind.  Betty felt drawn to begin a Children's Rosary after hearing about it on the EWTN show Sunday Night Prime.  The timing of her first inquiry was providential, as we were working with the Xavier Society for the Blind on a Braille transcription of the Children's Rosary book.  With all the needed materials provided to Betty in Braille she began to pray that Our Lord would send her a sighted person to help her.  Our Lord sent her two.  She began at Holy Cross Academy Elementary School in Massillon, Ohio.  They have held Children's Rosary meetings in October, November and December.  She hopes to soon have a Parish monthly group as well.  During this time, Betty realized that her service dog was a highlight for the children when she came.  As we were talking one day a wonderful inspiration came that maybe her guide dog could wear the Children's Rosary logo.  With my own joint disability sewing was not possible.  Betty also could not sew one without being able to see it.  However, with prayer and God's grace a wonderful answer came.  Women from her Churches "caring stitches"  offered to make a Children's Rosary banner for her dog that he could wear both to meetings and at the Church to help increase awareness of the Children's Rosary.  She also felt moved to put a little miraculous medal on his harness too.  Through blindness and the need for a guide dog, Our Lord was bringing beautiful blessings. 

Indeed it would seem that no disability or weakness is too great that Our Lord cannot use it for the good.  

The next Children's Rosary at Holy Cross Academy will be January 15th, 2016.
