Like others today, my little love and I will be enjoying the Great American Solar Eclipse. From his toddler perspective, today is just like any other day, which will consist of eating, playing, praying, napping and more playing. But for me, I will treasure the Solar Eclipse as another great moment that I am blessed to share with him.
In Rhode Island, the Solar Eclipse will begin around 1:27 PM and will last until roughly 4:00 PM. While I did not purchase any specialty glasses to view the eclipse, I do plan on celebrating it in a special way.
Since today, August 21st also happens to be Pope Saint Pius X’s Feast Day and the vigil of the Feast of The Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Queenship of Mary, I will celebrate the Solar Eclipse by praying the Holy Rosary with my son.
I invite you to join us by praying the Holy Rosary during the timeframe of the Solar Eclipse. Whether you are outside, safely enjoying the Solar Eclipse first-hand or inside, like us, enjoying photos and videos from the professionals and whether you are by yourself or with family or friends, please consider praying the Rosary with a spirit of faith and love. You may also include your own special intentions.
“The Rosary is the most beautiful and the most rich in graces of all prayers; it is the prayer that touches most the Heart of the Mother of God…and if you wish peace to reign in your homes, recite the family Rosary.” ~Pope Saint Pius X
