"Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For every one who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him! "(Matthew 7: 7-11)

The Gospel reading from yesterday is truly such a beautiful promise from the Lord.  It also brings the relationship of prayer back to the relationship we can understand: one of a child to a parent.  This is something both children and parents can understand.  Yet we are told that even when we as parents are lacking in love and generosity to our children, Our Heavenly Father will always give us what is good for us when we ask Him something in prayer. 

With such a beautiful assurance that only good gifts will be given when we pray to Our Father in Heaven, it is truly a holy and beneficial practice to bring our children to prayer. Please prayerfully consider trying to bring a Children's Rosary group to your parish.  Our families, parishes and world are in such need of these beautiful prayers of the children.

Over the next few days we have a number of Children's Rosary groups meeting. Please consider joining the different Children's Rosary groups in prayer from your home. The children always pray for those unifying prayers with them.    Thank you all and God Bless. Amen.
