7th Anniversary

Yesterday was a very special day for me! It was the 7th anniversary of beginning childrens adoration at my home parish of St Francis of Assisi in Wichita, Kansas. We began 02/02/02 at 2 pm! I can hardly believe it has been so long now. So many graces and miracles from these times of prayer with the children. I will write more this week about times from these hours but for today let me tell you of one precious memory from the first hour....

A young mother arrived with her 5 year old son, Alex, and said they were so happy to be there but would have to leave right after to get to another appointment and wouldn't have time to stop and talk. She thanked me in advance for getting this going, etc, and so we had our hour and when it was over we all left the chapel and I was surprised to see My friend and her son had gone back up to the front of the chapel and were kneeling in front of Jesus. Later she called me and said she had needed to leave to get to an urgent appointment but after it was over this little son whom she worried might not last an hour of adoration had turned to her while walking out and said, "Mom, can we stay a little longer? I'm not done talking to Jesus yet!" :-) She said, "How could I resist!"
