Mass Offered on December 2 2017 for Renewal of Family Prayer

A Mass was offered on Saturday December 2nd for Renewal of Family Prayer through the Capuchin Missions. This is something we do on the first Saturday of every month. The children also pray for renewal of family prayer in their prayer groups. In addition, over 800 individual 9 day novenas have been said by members oft 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 Servant of God 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 pictures above are children who are part of the Children's Rosary (Rosary de Niños) in the Parish of Santos Reyes in Michoacán, Mexico. This picture was sent to us a week ago from their recent meeting. They meet at the Templo Divina Providencia (Chapel of Divine Providence) which is an outpost of the main Parish. The group meets each Saturday at 3:30 PM local time. 

As we enter Advent today one can see how the children of this little group are readying their hearts to meet Jesus. They have set up many statues of the Divine Child to look at as they pray.
