There is a long process in family life that is truly sweet and tender: children’s introduction to faith. It is composed of gestures, attention and explanations that lead children step by step, making sure they are never left alone in this delicate process.
In reality, it is a journey that begins at birth. The atmosphere within the family, at every moment, informs children’s view of the world, how they take their first steps within it and face their first small decisions.
Evidently, therefore, the lessons received in a protected and serene family environment determine the way in which a child will face the future. This is the blueprint for their entire life, and it is essential to give it the importance it deserves.
Introducing children to prayer may initially seem a challenging task, almost impossible in fact: they get distracted, easily become bored and cannot fully understand more complex concepts. Nothing could be further from the truth! It is hugely important for our children to be immersed daily in an atmosphere of authentic faith, where taking their first steps in prayer becomes natural and spontaneous.
Looking closely, we see that the Holy Rosary tells a captivating story: the life of Christ, which can be told to little ones. Reciting the prayers with the Rosary in hand, we can imagine that each bead is a flower to be offered to Maria.
Gifting a child their first Rosary is an important and meaningful gesture, as this too is a step forward in the world of prayer. This is a gift that will be treasured with care and love, and perhaps even passed on to the next generation. It is important, therefore, to choose it very carefully so that it is ideally suited to small children.
This article offers several options designed and created especially for children that are approaching Rosary prayer. These are precious, authentic pieces of jewelry, handmade in Italy by experts with a strong passion for their work, which really represents their life’s mission.
