The following report comes to us from team leader Lucy with our team in Boise, ID:
Today we gave away 15-20 Rosaries and its pamphlet. Here are a few of the conversations we had on this beautiful Mother’s Day.
“Michael”, the homeless man who had talked with us for so long last week stopped as Chuck arrived. He had read all the pamphlets and found them helpful, but had not tried praying the Rosary. They talked about the devotion and Michael agreed he should give it a try. He stayed a few moments longer to talk and ask questions, while Chuck set up. Pray Michael dives deep into Christ’s life in the Rosary.
Yet another passing family refused our offer and, when their little daughter wanted one, the father said, “You don’t want one of those.” But as they walked away, the little girl started crying, so the father returned to let her pick one out. She requested pink (of which we have no more), but settled for red-and-silver. May Our Lady draw the whole family to Christ and His Church.
A man on a bicycle stopped and accepted a Rosary. Then he questioned Chuck a bit about praying to the Saints, wanting to know why Catholics couldn’t go directly to God in prayer and confession. We assured him Catholics do pray directly to God and tried to show him the Church as a communion of saints limited by neither time nor place. He had already ridden 20 miles to get downtown. Pray that he exercises his prayer muscles with the Rosary.
Praised be Jesus Christ!
