  1. Belize Rosary Mission - May Update

    Posted on

    We received this wonderful Update from Manuela at the Belize Rosary Mission Today on their May Mission! 

    Dear All,

     
    On May 13, 2016, feast day of Our Lady of Fatima, thousands of Belizeans gathered in a stadium in Belize City to participate in the largest Eucharist adoration and global living Rosary event in the country. At the start of the event, my aunt Thomasita was called up to the stage where she was acknowledged for the rosary mission work in Belize by touching each child, teacher and principal in the Catholic schools in all the villages, towns and cities nationwide.  She was honored with a plaque. 
    Manuela and Thomasita receive a plaque to express gratitude for their work
     
    Please keep praying for us as we travel to the Corozal district schools this week and to the Toledo District schools next week to teach the children the rosary.
     
    Thank You, 
    Manuela

  2. Drawing the Faith with Mary - A collaboration

    Posted on

    If you follow us on social media, you may have noticed some excitement a few weeks ago on instagram and facebook! Beads with Faith have been looking for someone to help us with artwork for a VERY long time ... I love to create Rosary Beads and Chaplets and can draw a little - but wanted drawings that were new and of a great standard to include in our resources for schools and individuals - I have spoken to many people but we never found the right fit! 

    Then. Lo and behold I come across a wonderful artist on instagram - Drawing the Faith with Mary - I was blown away and I hope you are too :)

  3. What the Rosary Means to me.... Anonymous

    Posted on

    The Rosary means as many things to me as Mary has manifestations. She has been an inspiration to me on three continents and I have found her to be a unifying force everywhere. The terror of Demons, hides us from our false self and brings us back to who we really are.

    I always loved my faith and what it composed but always had a sense that there was something missing...the "milk of human kindness" had always been there but not beatingwith the pierced heart of our Blessed Mother. The Rosary was to prove the missing link, a chord that would stretch through my adult life. 

    It has always been a walking prayer for me, through the Scottish Highlands and across the deserts of North America. I have seen the Rosary best prayed at an, Opus Dei boys camp in Spain; on a basketball court, as the boys circled or sat on the bleachers as the preferred. 

    De Montfort wanted to be totally hers and recommended focussing on the words and the mysteries alternately. This basks us in the warmth of Jesus and light of Mary which animates that life one after the other.....

  4. 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.
