Our Lady of course was fond of weddings and took a special interest that one particular wedding did not go without sufficient wine. And so the candles were placed inside the lanterns. The illuminated heart with the flame in the middle was a very special image that one of my children was able to capture in the picture above.
We prayed in the dark before a statue of Our Lady. Kostin our older son knelt down in front of Our Lady. We included in our prayers the Children's Rosary. We went inside and then an idea came. Asher had asked if we could put more lanterns outside.
It was then that I remembered four more candles we had. The kids rushed to help in setting up the additional candles and the lanterns we had made. Within two of the lanterns, were candles with the image of St. John Paul II. While outside looking at the candles and praying, a memory came - a prayer that is at the end of our Children's Rosary book. It is a prayer uttered by St. John Paul II at the Piazza di Spagna on December 8th 2002 (the Feast of the Immaculate Conception) 15 years ago. Remembering the prayer I went and got a copy of our Children's Rosary book and said the prayer aloud before the statue of Our Lady. This is that prayer:
A Journey to Bring the Baby Jesus to the Children
