We receive pictures like this all the time, it seems. People are so very grateful to receive a simple Rosary which we send them with the help of our benefactors. From all around the world people write requesting Rosaries and we send them on. The pictures and thank-you etters make us realize how valuable these Rosaries are considered to be. Folks certainly do appreciate being able to have a Rosary and in many cases they use the Rosary to evangelize, helping others understand that the Rosary is a compendium of the Gospel.

Katie and Naomi
                    In this picture Naomi, who directs various prayer groups in Maseno, Kenya, is happy as she receives a box of Rosaries from Katie, a Stonehill College student who brought all the Rosaries with her to Kenya. Family Rosary also has an office in Kenya which reaches schools, parishes and the general public through radio with Father Peyton's message, "The family that prays together stays together."

                    Remember when you received your first Rosary? Remember how fascinating it was? It's a sacramental that puts in mind of the presence of God. For many, Rosaries are an invitation to contemplation. May these Rosaries be a blessing for those who receive them.
