Child and the Rosary
This morning we had the pleasure of hearing a small four or five year old girl saying a decade of the rosary. She took her shoes off and knelt before the tabernacle for a few seconds. Next she wrapped her rosary around her barefoot. From there she walked over to her mother and wrapped her rosary around her mother's head. The whole time she was reciting the prayers. She twirled, picked up a piece of paper and waved it around. I had to wonder how this was going to end. I believe she glanced at her mother, who cued her to keep praying, but at the right moment she ended with the Glory Be. She also ended up kneeling back in front of the tabernacle. Her sweet small voice was strong, and I thought our Lord and Lady must have been smiling at this little one. This little one~appropriately named Mary!
