A Spiritual Gift for the Children's Rosary

Today the Children's Rosary received a wonderful gift.  A card arrived from our Children's Rosary group leader in Mount Lebanon, Pennsylvania.  She had enrolled the Children's Rosary into a special Novena of Masses offered through the Capuchin Missions. The Children's Rosary is being remembered in a Novena of Nine Hundred Masses offered in honor of St. Pio beginning on September 23 and concluding on October 1st 2016.

In thinking about this gift to the Children's Rosary a Scripture quote comes to mind:
"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.  But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
(Matthew 6:19-21)

We are very grateful for this generous gift.  More and more there is a yearning to turn our full attention to our true home which is heaven. It does not make sense to focus on earthly riches. Instead it is gifts like this that are the post precious.

Through the Children's Rosary and this tapestry of prayer it is our hope that all the members of the Children's Rosary will be sanctified and assisted spiritually in getting to their true home in heaven. 

A special thank you to the group leader who shared this gift with all of us. We are all weak and need grace to help us. To have others praying and offering gifts such as these helps each one of us on our journey.
