Holy Rosary - For Livelihood Programm

In Matthew 13:45-46 Jesus said, "The Father's
kingdom is like a merchant who had a supply of
merchandise and found a pearl. That merchant was
prudent; he sold the merchandise and bought the
single pearl for himself. So also with you, seek his
treasure that is unfailing, that is enduring, where no
moth comes to eat and no worm destroys."
When was the Rosary Bracelets Livelihood
Program conceived? Fr. Fernando Suarez came to
the Philippines June of 2006 with a group of
missionaries from Canada to start up a livelihood
program in Barangay Butong, Taal Batangas, his
hometown. The group stayed in Villa Clavel,
Nonong Casto, Lemery, Batangas through the
hospitality of the owner Clavel Bendaňa.
Josephine Marie “Baby” Lizares who happened to
be staying with Clavel at the time was asked to
look after the missionaries during their stay. It
became evident that it was all a part of God’s plan
as Fr. Fernando ended up asking Baby, who has
five years experience in making costume jewelry,
to head up the livelihood program. Let us just say,
the rest is history. To date, we have distributed
250,000 rosary bracelets in the Philippines and all
over the world.
