Members of the Children's Rosary from Kaka Basty are seen above in a long line leading a procession on Palm Sunday.
The Children's Rosary® is a prayer group movement that was begun out of love for Our Lady and Her Son. Jesus tells us "Truly, I say to you unless you turn and become like children you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven" (Matthew 18:3). The Children's Rosary is an effort to begin in parishes rosary prayer groups composed of children and led by children. Through prayer of the Rosary Our Lady will guide our young people while at the same time sanctify families and Parishes.

7,865 Rosaries sent to Nigeria this Week
Last June, 65 students graduated and received training in starting Children's Rosary prayer groups in their parishes. They also received a Children's Rosary book, parish welcome packet, and some rosaries. Currently, Fr. Paul has 90 students. Each of the future catechists in the program recently received a Child Consecration book to use in their parish. Fr. Paul is also leading the Consecration with the catechists using the Child Consecration book. He explained that they have almost completed the Consecration. Fr. Paul writes, "The Consecration to Jesus through Mary following in the Spirit of St. Therese, the Little Flower is a powerful prayer that should be said by all. I personally liked the prayer because each day I say it, it renews my spirit and I discover something new. I received the same sentiments from my students."
There were requests from the Catechists that they needed more rosaries to initiate Children's Rosary prayer groups in the parishes. Additionally, the Children's Rosary group at Our Lady of Fatima School in Shendam with approximately 700 pupils was in need of rosaries for the students. The school requested rosaries for the Children's Rosary. Therefore, we have sent a large number of rosaries to respond to this growing need. We plan to continue sending boxes of rosaries. With each box we send, we take a picture of the rosaries. Below you will see the contents of box one.
We also included a picture below of box sixteen.

Spring Planting has Begun
Today is the first day of spring in the Northern hemisphere. We have been busy planting seeds and they have been on the warm radiators inside the house. The sun is getting stronger and one can see as soon as he seeds break through the soil they are already bending in toward the light.
In many ways, I see this light as the love of God and the tender plants in many ways resemble our little children. Some people have asked, when should we introduce our children to Our Lord and prayer. I see these seedlings as providing the best answer: immediately. The hearts of children are yearning to know the love of God from their first moments. I once read in a book about St. John Paul II and also saw it mentioned again at the St. John Paul II museum in Washington, that when the saint was born his mother asked that the window immediately be opened so the first sounds he heard were the voices of people singing in honor of Our Lady.
Thus, I see great benefit to having Our Lord and Our Lady's names being praised in the space where young babies are being held such as in a nursery. Often parents have purchased our Children's Rosary CDs to play as they may be feeding their baby or the baby is resting in the crib. The CDs have young children praying the Rosary with soft music behind which is soothing to babies. It also protects the space through these prayers and surely brings fruits to have Our Lord being honored in the home. Later as the child grows and is playing in the room it still is wonderful to keep the Rosary playing. By the age of 3 we have regularly seen children praying the Rosary and even leading the Rosary in our Children's Rosary prayer groups.
For those interested in our Children's Rosary CDs they can be purchased through EWTN Religious Catalogue HERE. The CDs are also available through EWTN in Great Britain. To purchase click HERE.
As the spring unfolds keep checking back to see how the garden turns out this year. We are full of expectation and are hoping for a bountiful harvest.
