Beads with Faith Mission Statement
"The mission of the Catholic school is the integral formation of students, so that they may be true to their condition as Christ's disciples and as such work effectively for the evangelization of culture and for the common good of society."
Saint John Paul II
The main mission of Beads with Faith is to revive and revitalise the Rosary in our Schools, Parishes and Homes.
To inspire a generation of Rosary makers and particularly young people and families that want to pray the Rosary, love to pray the Rosary and learn about Christ at the school of Mary, his mother, Our Blessed Mother.
The heartbeat of Beads with Faith is the Rosary. There is nothing that gives us greater joy than to teach the Rosary, make the Rosary and Pray the Rosary.
'Give me an army praying the Rosary and I will conquer the world.'
Pope Pius IX
Through education and the Rosary, that 'army' Pope Pius IX spoke of is not an impossible task.
Saint JPII spoke of the wonder and breadth of this wonderful prayer as an education in Our Faith in it's entirety, as a sure clear path to knowing the love of God:
'The Rosary, though clearly Marian in character, is at heart a Christocentric prayer. In the sobriety of its elements, it has all the depth of the Gospel message in its entirety, of which it can be said to be a compendium.(2) It is an echo of the prayer of Mary, her perennial Magnificat for the work of the redemptive Incarnation which began in her virginal womb. With the Rosary, the Christian people sits at the school of Mary and is led to contemplate the beauty on the face of Christ and to experience the depths of his love. Through the Rosary the faithful receive abundant grace, as though from the very hands of the Mother of the Redeemer.'
Saint John Paul II
The workshops we have carried out to date have been a clear and true joy to us and also to the people we have met, many of whom have continued their prayer of the Rosary at home and brought it to their families too.
Our children, families, youth and parishes can learn so much through the Rosary, so much by way of how to love, how to say "Yes" (our own fiat) to Jesus and to walk on a clear path to holiness.
'If you are what you should be, you will set the whole world on fire. Let the Truth be your delight, proclaim it, but with a certain congeniality'
St Catherine of Sienna
