The Children's Rosary® is a prayer group movement that was begun out of love for Our Lady and Her Son. Jesus tells us "Truly, I say to you unless you turn and become like children you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven" (Matthew 18:3). The Children's Rosary is an effort to begin in parishes rosary prayer groups composed of children and led by children. Through prayer of the Rosary Our Lady will guide our young people while at the same time sanctify families and Parishes.
A Mass was offered today for Renewal of Family Prayer. In a special way the Children's Rosary has been praying since our first anniversary for renewal of family prayer. We have said over 850 Novenas to different saints asking for their intercession and help renewing family prayer in our families. We also have a Mass offered on the first Saturday of the month for the same intention. One of the members of the Children's Rosary was so kind to sponsor a Mass each month for this intention for one year. As more and more children come together in prayer of the Rosary in their Children's Rosary prayer groups we pray that prayer also blossoms in their homes as well and throughout the world. Pope John Paul II was fond of saying, "As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live."
