OCTOBER DEVOTION – DAY – 23 – THE HOLY ROSARY – FOR CHILDREN

October 23, 2019frjohnma

“It is also beautiful and fruitful to entrust to this prayer the growth and development of children. Does the Rosary not follow the life of Christ, from his conception to his death, and then to his Resurrection and his glory? Parents are finding it ever more difficult to follow the lives of their children as they grow to maturity. In a society of advanced technology, of mass communications and globalization, everything has become hurried, and the cultural distance between generations is growing ever greater. The most diverse messages and the most unpredictable experiences rapidly make their way into the lives of children and adolescents, and parents can become quite anxious about the dangers their children face. At times parents suffer acute disappointment at the failure of their children to resist the seductions of the drug culture, the lure of an unbridled hedonism, the temptation to violence, and the manifold expressions of meaninglessness and despair” (St. John-Paul II, Rosarium Virginis Mariae, no. 42).

    Through the intercession of our Blessed Mother, may God hear our prayers and guide and protect our children +.

    Exactly! This is true.

    The main problem is how to teach children to be patient enough to pray the holy rosary. Even the adult sometimes we find it difficult, feeling that it is long and tiring since we are mature, we tend to control ourselves and adapt then we realise what a beautiful prayer is the holy rosary.

    Oh Mary! Help us. Amen.
