I just wanted to share a lovely thing that happened to me last night.
I have four wonderful children, the two oldest are 10 and 8 (9 in July).
We always say our prayers together which I love. We go to Saturday Mass occassionally- Saturdays are always frenetic affairs with Football training, piano lessons, dancing, gym all kinds of fun and games, but if we can we go to Mass and Saturday Mass means the Rosary and confession. I love the Rosary, I suppose because of my family. My Mother & Grandmother have always been advocates of the Rosary and my Mum still prays it daily.
With all the chat on here recently about Fatima (maybe there’s no more than usual, but it seemed to jump out at me anyway) I’ve been reading up on what happened. I spent a lot of time in Lourdes when I was a young adult, but didn’t know much about Fatima. Anyway-- Will (my oldest son) started asking me about it and I read the whole story to him. You know when you’re talking religion to your child and they switch off, let out a big sigh and wish they were somewhere else? Well I caught the sigh and said “anyway” and tried to change the subject, at which point Will said to me “please read some more dad!” So I obliged of course!!! Later we prayed the rosary together-- which was lovely and then last night, as I put them to bed-- they ASKED ME if we could pray the Rosary again together! Wow! I was so proud of the little fellas!
I just thought I would share my joy with you all!
