  1. Interview With .. Dr Brian Kiczek

    Posted on

    I met Dr Brian Kiczek through our mutual love of Jesus, on social media! - hilariously i have been following the Power of the Rosary for a long time but it was their dolls from Heaven project which started as an awesome way to bring the 'Little Way' of Saint Therese and now has further plans for more 'Dolls from Heaven!' I had no idea how many projects this beautiful family have on the go! Here are some questions The Rosary Doctor, Dr Brian KIczek answered in our email interview! 

     

    1.       The Dolls from Heaven project is beautiful tell us a bit about the project and what inspired it ? 

    My family has always loved dolls and we have built up quite a collection.  On a long family trip stuck in traffic after our Rosary we started talking about how there was no saint dolls out there.  Within a couple of hours of excited discussion we realized that God might be calling us to such a work and we had our first few dolls mapped out in our head.  About less than a year later we were finally ready to start our company with the first doll Therese Praise Jesus!

    2.       what is the response like to the dolls, i think they are beautiful and could certainly get a conversation started! 

    So far the response has been tremendous, everyone loves the dolls and are getting sometimes multiple orders from the same family.  God is certainly on the move with this project! 

    3.       You and your family have a beautiful devotion to the Rosary and desire to encourage the whole world to pray the Rosary - how did this desire come to you ?

    Well with all things you have to start with yourself.  Being away from God for so long I was searching for the truth the Rosary was a major part of my keeping and spreading the faith. Here is full story of our return to the Truth.  

  2. Belize Rosary Mission - Manuela

    Posted on

    Being co-leader of this Belize Rosary Mission is such a humbling experience. I was given a tremendous gift of not only teaching the children about the history, meaning and power of the rosary, but in that process, I have gotten to know my country of Belize.  I have gotten to be with the villagers, to travel to remote areas of Belize, areas that I would never have gotten to know had it not been for this beautiful rosary ministry. I have experienced the love of so many people in the cities, towns and remote areas of Belize. I have seen their pain, their hardships, their joys! I have walked over hammock bridges, dined in thatched roof homes, walked over hills and crossed rivers over ferries to reach the people.  

    I am deeply honored to be part of this amazing work of the Blessed Mother on earth. I am also deeply humbled. Through this mission I have learned to surrender to the Lord completely, to let go of  my worries and to place them in the hands of Jesus and Mary.

  3. Introducing Claire...

    I am so blessed to know this woman and to be able to call her a friend. Claire brought me hope during a very difficult year for my family and inspired me to keep going with this mission and spread of devotion to the Rosary as well as to focus on my faith and personal development - to continue to serve others and all of you in the way that we do! I almost gave up- but this woman truly inspired me to never give up on this love and passion of mine!  Claire now has her own website My Walnut Heart where she sells beautiful Jewellery - her work is exsquisite

  4. The Crucifixion - Artist Nikki Blinston

    Posted on

    In 2001 I painted 'The Crucifixion' as a gift to the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, based in the Bronx,  New York. The piece was inspired by original illuminations, painted in the 15th century, which are rich in symbolism, seeped in spirituality and tradition. The religious images I have been commissioned to paint all refer to an iconic style, with a twist of 'Nikki'. I do not follow the tradition of using tempera paint, however I do ensure I am surrounded with prayer and inspiration as all images of God, His Blessed Mother, His Angels and His Saints are a glimpse of heaven, the paintings themselves should be a prayer, an aid to deepening spirituality. My spiritual paintings are, I hope and pray an inspiration to others. I feel blessed the Lord  has chosen and trusted me to portray Him and all who glorify Him.
