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.

Hold to sound advice and prudence, never let them out of sight.

This month of June, we pray that young people will be guided by God's Holy Spirit when it comes to choosing their vocation in life.

Choosing a path in life as a teenager can be a daunting thing to do. Many young people are handed a CEO form to fill out for college and have very little time to decide what to put on it or if they even want to go to college.  As a result often times a course is chosen and they do not really want to do the subject they have chosen.  Much money and time can be  wasted as the course is often times not put to good use and the young person has to begin again trying to discern which path to choose. Prayer of discernment is a good thing because it asks God for his help in the final decision and God will lead no one astray.

There are many paths a young person can take in life.  Some are called to a Religious vocation, while many are called to the vocation of Marriage and family life, and others are called to single life.  Vocation is a gift and a call from God.  Where God is not at the centre of one's choice, life is difficult and often very lonely.

This month let us help all young people who are trying to discern a vocation in life by praying for them.  Let us pray that God will enlighten their minds and that they will include him in their decisions.

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."
