Mass Offered for Renewal of Family Prayer
A Mass was offered for Renewal of Family Prayer on Saturday July 2nd. In a special way the Children's Rosary has been praying 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."
The picture above was taken at the June Children's Rosary meeting at St. Peter Claver Church in West Hartford, Connecticut USA. The two sisters helping to lead the Rosary were new to the group in May. Their parents are originally from the South Sudan. The sisters were new to praying the Rosary when they came to the meeting in May. However when they returned for the June meeting it was clear that they had been praying at home. They were so much more comfortable standing up in front of the other children. It was a beautiful thing to see. We thank the Lord for all His graces that help to rekindle prayer in families.
