One Million Children Pray Rosary for Peace

(October 08, 2009) Venezuela's National Council of the Laity is encouraging children throughout the world to pray for peace and unity. The plea is part of the annual campaign "One Million Children Praying the Rosary," which is set to take place this year October 18. The council explains on its Web site that the reason for the project is "because the world urgently needs peace and unity. Because God wants us to pray. Because prayer leads to faith, faith leads to love, love leads to service and service leads to peace." This year, the organizers are asking children to pray three times: once on Oct. 16 in their schools, the second time on Oct. 17 in their parishes, and the third time on Oct. 18 with their families and friends. The campaign recalls St. Pio of Pietrelcina's words: "And to think that if one million children prayed the Rosary. How many graces would be shed over the world!" Those participating in the campaign are encouraged to send photos and testimonies of their local events.
