Eight New Children's Rosary Groups Begin in Prelature of Batanes, Philippines

We are excited to welcome eight new Children's Rosary groups from the Philippines! Fr. Ronaldo Manabat (pictured above, front row, second from left), Pastor and Rector of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception of the Prelature of Batanes, has begun these eight new Children's Rosary groups. 
The Cathedral Parish has seven communities (villages)  under its jurisdiction. The children gather once a week in the Chapel of their village for the Children's Rosary. Once a month the children from all the villages come together at the Cathedral to hold a Children's Rosary together. Fr. Manabat sent these pictures from a recent meeting when all eight Children's Rosary groups were praying together. It is wonderful to also see Fr. Manabat, as Shepherd to the Cathedral, kneeling in prayer with the children.
We warmly welcome the children from the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception to the Children's Rosary. 

Children's Rosary Receives Papal Blessing

We are excited to share that the Children's Rosary has received a Papal Blessing from Pope Francis. This was conveyed in honor of our Ten Year Anniversary.

Forty-nine Catechists Graduate with Children's Rosary Materials to Begin Groups in their Dioceses

We received wonderful news from Fr. Paul Miapwap. He is the head of the Catechetical Institute in Shendam, Nigeria. This spring we sent 11,702 rosaries to Fr. Paul. Additional rosaries have been sent. Fr. Paul continues to share how these rosaries are being used:

I gave my students each 150 Rosaries each to go and begin new centers for the Children's Rosary. We graduated and commissioned 49 catechists this year.  I never gave all the Rosaries but told them that whenever they open new groups they should send pictures to me then I will send additional Rosaries to them. For the 40 students going for their final year, I gave each 40 Rosaries as they are going home for the break to open more centers. 

Inside the envelope I put their certificate and the Consecration book and the [Children's Rosary] welcoming package. The wives of the graduating students came, and I spoke to them about the Children's Rosary group and asked them to join hands to make the group strong in their various stations.

Pictured below are some of the rosaries we have sent to Fr. Paul. Over twenty-six boxes of rosaries have been sent. In addition Children's Rosary welcome packets, Children's Rosary books, and Child Consecration books were sent for the graduating Catechists. The Catechists spend two years in study and come from nine dioceses in Nigeria. Bishop Davou Dung (pictured above) presented the catechists with the rosaries that were sent. 

Update on the Four Barrels Sent to Uganda

Thank you to those who have made donations to help cover the shipping expense of the four barrels full of handmade rosaries for Uganda.

The cost for the shipping barrels, transport, and the cost of the books was $3,320. We thank those who made donations to help these materials reach Uganda.

Bishop John Keenan of Scotland Shares His Experiences Leading a Consecration to Jesus through Mary
Dear Friends,
The Spanish Children's Rosary, Rosario de Niños, premiered on EWTN on March 8, 2021. It will air Monday through Friday every other week. They plan to air Rosario de Niños two weeks a month alternating every other week with different programming. 
The air times will be on EWTN's Spanish stations:
(España-Latinoamérica) International airs M-F at 9:30 EDT
(Estados Unidos) Domestic airs M-F at 17:30 ET (5:30 PM EDT)

The picture below is a family in Virginia praying along with the new Spanish Children's Rosary airing on EWTN. The children are very quickly learning how to pray the Rosary in Spanish. This brings their mom great joy since her native language is Spanish and, up until now, her children had never learned how to pray the Rosary in Spanish.

Thank you,
Queridos Amigos,
El Rosario de Niños en español, Rosario de Niños, se estrenó en EWTN en el 8 de marzo, 2021. Estará en el televisión el lunes hasta el viernes cada dos semanas.  Planean poner en su canal el Rosario de Niños dos veces cada mes alternando cada dos semanas con otra programación. 

Tiempos de aire estaban en los estaciones de español de EWTN
(España-Latinoamérica) Internacional aire M-F en 9:30 ET
(Estados Unidos)  Domestico aire en M-F en 17:30 ET

El foto arriba es una familia en Virginia orando con el nuevo Rosario de Niños estrenando en EWTN. Los niños estan aprendiendo muy rápidamente como orar el Rosario en español. Esto lleva a su madre gran alegría porque su lengua nativa es español y, hasta ahora, sus hijos nunca habían aprendido a orar el Rosario en español.

Muchas gracias,
Watch the attached video Journeys in Faith for a glimpse into how the Children's Rosary began and also more about the new book Child Consecration.

Church Fathers Have Praised the New Book

Child Consecration: To Jesus through Mary—Following in the Spirit of St. Thérèse, the Little Flower is a wonderful means by which children can come to know God’s Blessed Mother in an easy and accessible way. . . . I commend this book to parents and teachers, who will find here a solid and ready means to develop the spiritual and devotional life of children, giving them a firm foundation from which to build their relationship with the Lord and his Church.” -Robert Cardinal Sarah 
"Saint Louis de Montfort in his True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary provides the solid foundation of Catholic devotion to the Virgin Mother of God whom her Divine Son has given to us as our Mother in the Church. Countless Catholics have followed the way of consecration, proposed by Saint Louis, to their great and lasting spiritual benefit. Child Consecration to Jesus through Mary, while remaining faithful to the teaching of Saint Louis de Montfort, makes it accessible for children. I highly recommend it to parents who wish to introduce their children to Marian devotion and thus help them to give their hearts, one with the Immaculate Heart of Mary, completely to the Sacred Heart of Jesus." Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke

For 30 minutes a gold twinkling light will flash on the View from Heaven map. You do not need to pray for the Children's Rosary during that time only say in your heart that you want to unify prayers with the members of the Children's Rosary praying and begin praying for 30 minutes. By adding your light of prayer others around the world can see your light and this encourages others to pray.
