Mass to be Offered on January 5th 2019 for Renewal of Family Prayer
A Mass will be offered on Saturday January 5th for Renewal of Family Prayer. This is something we do on the first Saturday of every month. Over 800 individual 9 day novenas have been said by members of the Children's Rosary to different saints also asking for renewal of family prayer. Why so much attention and prayer for this topic?
The Children's Rosary is not an intercessory prayer group, meaning its purpose is not to pray for intentions, rather it is a prayer group for children which helps support their prayer lives. Yet, one cannot ignore the importance of prayer in the family. Saints throughout history have championed prayer in the family. The famous saying coined by Venerable Fr. Patrick Peyton summaries it so beautifully, "The family that prays together stays together". And so to keep and strengthen our families we pray for them. We hope that the prayer the children experience in their prayer groups will blossom into a richer prayer life in their homes. Many members of the Children's Rosary have shared how this is happening in their families.
The picture above is of the Children's Rosary at Ave Maria Parish in Ave Maria, Florida. They meet at 3:30 PM on the first Friday of the month. Please consider unifying with them in prayer today.
