A Gift of Infinite Value

Today was the 6 year anniversary of the first meeting of the Children's  Rosary.  It has become a yearly tradition to give Our Lady a special gift on the anniversary.  The gift the children humbly share is a 9 day novena of Masses leading up to the anniversary.  Last year we were able to have two Masses offered daily on the 9 days preceding the anniversary.  This year we were able to offer three Masses daily for the nine days.  All were offered for the fulfillment of Our Lady's plans for the Children's Rosary.  There were many people who contributed to help in providing donations for the Masses.  Fr. Jude Ssali who is the Pastor of Our Lady of Fatima Parish in Uganda wrote that he would offer one Mass on each of the 9 days himself. Fr. Jude Ssali is pictured above with the Children's Rosary group in his parish. 

Today 6 Masses were said for the fulfillment of Our Ladies plans for the Children's Rosary. (A Mass for each year!) One of the Masses was offered at San Ignacio de Loyola sub parish in Kalasungay, Malaybalay City Philippines by the Children's Rosary groups there. Given the outpouring of love that we received for the anniversary we were able to also request 4 Masses on April 11th and 4 Masses on April 12th also for the fulfillment of Our Lady's plans for the Children's Rosary. This brings the grand total of Masses said in petition to 41. We will follow this up with a novena of Masses in Thanksgiving beginning on Easter Sunday. There is still time to contribute to this effort.  It would give us great joy to offer more Masses in Thanksgiving then we offered in petition.  How happy would Our Heavenly Mother be to see that her children did not forget to thank their Father in Heaven.  Indeed each mother always asks her children...did you say thank you?  We wish to bow our heads and extend our hands with an armful of Masses. 

A very special thank you to all who have helped with this gift of Masses which has infinite value and all who are part of the tapestry of prayer that comprises the Children's Rosary.
