Consider joining us in this years 25th International Week of Prayer and Fasting. This week of prayer and fasting for Peace, the Protection of life and the conversion of Nations has received support and blessings from such individuals as St. John Paul II and St Teresa of Calcutta.
The Children's Rosary has participated for the past four years. Beginning in 2013 with a group of children traveling by bus to the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington DC to lead a Children's Rosary at the kick off vigil. We have continued our involvement by participating each year in the prayers and fasting.
This week of prayer and fasting will extend from October 1 - 9. We hope many of the members of the Children's Rosary will consider being a part of this.
We would like to humbly ask you to include three additional intentions for your week of prayer and fasting:
*May Our Lady's plan for you, your family, the Children's Rosary and how the Children's Rosary affects the world be realized.
*May the Children's Rosary, their families, those associated with the Children's Rosary including our priests, Bishops and Our Holy Father the Pope be the extended hands of Our Blessed Mother and Her Son. May we gather a great many souls especially young people for the Lord. May we experience renewal of family prayer and spread it across the globe.
* May the Children's Rosary View from Heaven map never go dark...may it be always be illuminated with prayer.
While many will be fasting on bread and water individuals especially children may consider smaller renunciations that are age appropriate such as sweets or other little sacrifices.
We have found over the past few years more and more members of the Children's Rosary participating. Families have written that both parents and children have joined in for the week of prayer and fasting.
