On Tuesday, the rosary making group that we belong to had their bi-annual consecration and potluck dinner. During the school year our attendance is almost nill. Once school is out, we attend the meetings on a more regular basis. The Totus Tuus Rosary Making Association made and sent more than 35,000 rosaries to the missions. I fear that we only a contributed a few of those, but as I was told, every rosary counts.
This was our first time attending one of the Consecration and potluck dinners. It was nice to see so many people attend. We made a procession to the blessed sacrament in song with candles lit. The leader read a from the bible and we all said the consecration prayer. Afterwards, the new members received their Totus Tuus pins and crosses. We aren't new members, but we received ours on Tuesday. They are always passed out after the consecration.
One of the special things that happens on this day is that a very special statue of Our Lady is displayed with rosaries that are ready to be sent out. She is unfortunately cracking as a result of our extremely dry climate. She was made as a special gift from a group in the Philipines for the Totus Tuus Rosary Makers. It is the only one in existance in the whole world. I fell in love with this statue and had to have a picture of it with my children.
If you click on this next picture, you can see all of the places that the rosaries from our group have been sent. If you need rosaries for a mission that you are going on, please let me know and I can pass the information on. Just let me know where you are going and how many rosaries you need. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
