Put on the Whole Armor of God

"Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil" (Ephesians 6:11)

This was part of the first reading at Mass today and invokes the wonderful imagery of a battle.  Indeed we know that good and evil exists and to protect ourselves and our children it is good to cover ourselves in prayer. Little sacrifices each day given to Our Lord coupled with prayer of the heart help to protect us from the deceiver.  In a special way the prayers of the children are extremely potent as they come from a humble heart.  We are very blessed that on Halloween October 31st, a day when many celebrate evil or evil imagery, we have Children's Rosary groups meeting sprinkled across the globe.  Little prayers joined together from simple little souls wanting only to please Our Lord and show Him love.  Such tender prayers surely send a decisive blow to forces moving to create confusion and division especially in families.  Instead these prayers of the children bound together in little prayer groups around the world are the safety nets being thrown out to help the many who unknowingly have been drawn away.

Please consider joining the children in prayer they always pray for those unifying prayers with them.
