Pray for children

Will you pray for God's little children?

Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven

This blog invites you to pray for the protection of children and young people. Will you pray for God's little children, from the unborn baby in the womb, the new born baby, little children of all ages and young people.  It could be your child you want to pray for or just any child.  You can pray before the Blessed Sacrament for one hour a week or before a tabernacle in your church.  If you are not able to make it to a church you can pray in your own home. Please join us as we pray.

This blog was set up under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ and our Blessed Lady are its patrons.

The Truth Will Set You Free

We pray for the protection of Life

This month of May, the month of Mary, we pray for the protection of life, of the little unborn baby in the womb. We place all new life in the hands of Our Blessed Lady as we pray.

The truth will set you free

Yahweh God shaped man from the soil of the ground and blew the breath of life into his nostrils and man became a living being. (Gen. 2:7)

God, shaped man. He blew the breath of life into his nostrils. It is God who gives us life and not man. God is the author of all life.

 

Christ is the image of God.

Christ is the first born of all creation.

All things were created in Him.

All things were created through Him and for Him.

He exists before all things.

 

Christ is the Head

of the Body, that is the Church.

In Him all things hold together.

 

Christ is the first born from the dead.

God wanted all fullness to be found in Him.

 

Live according to the true faith in Christ

God wants us to live according to the true faith in Christ and not according to false teaching.

God wants us to live our lives in Christ, to be rooted in Him and built up upon Him.

 

We must make sure that

No one captivates us with the empty lure of a philosophy of the kind that human beings hand on, based on the principles of this world and not on Christ.

 

Whoever holds to my Commandments

Whoever holds to my Commandments and keeps them is the one who loves me; and whoever loves me will be loved by my Father and I shall love him and reveal myself to him.

Anyone who loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we shall come to him and make a home in him.

Anyone who does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that you hear is not my own: it is the word of the Father who sent me.

 

Before deciding how to vote in the upcoming referendum

Pray about it, and let the Word of Christ in all its richness find a home with you.

 

May it rise

Let the light of your face shine upon us!

May the kindness of your face
rise above the hardness of our hearts.
May the humility of your heart
Rise above the foolishness of our pride.
Let the light of your face shine upon us!

May the joy ofyour mercy
Rise above the sadness of our sins.
May the splendour of your eternal Day
Rise above the sleep of our death.
Let the light of your face shine upon us!

May the freedom of the children of God
Rise above our slavery.
May the peace of your love
Rise above our aguish.
Let the light of your face shine upon us!

May the dawn of your resurrection
Rise above the night of our world.
May the glory of God
Rise within the heart of each person.
Let the light of your face shine upon us!-- Lucien Deiss.

Children of the Eucharist

On Sunday 30th April 2017, I travelled with a bus from Drogheda to Knock. It was for the annual meeting of people who spend time with Jesus each week in Eucharistic Adoration. While we were there we heard several talks.  One was from a lady called Antoinette Moynihan who lives in Kentstown. Antoinette has set up a group called Children of the Eucharist.  She goes to schools and speaks to children. She introduces them to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament so that they will prepare properly to receive the Sacraments. Eucharistic Adoration for children has spread to Scotland, England, America and Australia. Last year had rapid growth. She gave us some examples of what children have said about Eucharistic Adoration.

"Every heart is a Sacred Heart."

"I miss adoration." (From a 5th class student who was missing for a few months).

"Jesus showed me the door to Heaven."

"Jesus told me not to lie anymore and that he would help me."

"Love everyone, even children who do bad things."
