Aside

 

fatima 1_edited When the children asked the Lady what she wanted them to call her, she said the Lady of the Rosary. Back then people prayed the rosary, and children prayed the rosary. the three children of Fatima; Lucia, Santos, and Jacinta , especially prayed the rosary. Those beads were their constant companions.

Today, people don’t pray the rosary quite as much. Children don’t pray the rosary as often as then. Rosaries teach and give reason to meditate and ponder the gospel. Children don’t do that much any more.

Today, they have the Fidget Spinner. Experts say these devices do no harm, and might even be good. I wonder what apparitions one gets from a Fidget Spinner?
