The prayer of one million children can change the world
Aid to the Church in Need foundation invites parishes, nurseries, schools and families to participate in the initiative “One Million Children Praying the Rosary” on the 18th of October. The focus of the prayer is worldwide peace and unity, and the overcoming of the present healthcare crisis all around the world.
“A crisis in which the entire world has been and continues to be exposed to an invisible virus that has brought death to hundreds of thousands of people and devastating, and as yet unforeseeable, economic and social consequences. Our world is no longer the same, and what was taken for granted until now will no longer be so,” stated Cardinal Mauro Piacenza, president of ACN International. In his letter to the children, he said that in difficult situations like these it‘s very important to work together and help one another. “But we must also not forget that the biggest help of all comes from God”.
That is why the ACN foundation invited parishes and families to join the “One Million Children Praying the Rosary” initiative on the 18th of October, or pray together with the children in the schools on the 19th of October.”
“Our materials for the prayer campaign are available in 23 languages, including, for example, Arabic and several African languages.” Children from around 80 countries and on all continents will be participating. From Ghana to Syria to Papua New Guinea. “May this joint worldwide Rosary prayer initiative fill us all with new courage and confidence in God‘s loving protection, which He wishes to bestow on us through His Holy Mother”, Fr. Martin M. Barta, Ecclesiastical Assistant of ACN International said.
