Children of the world!

Greetings from Rome!

My name is Father Patrick Byrne [SVD] and I am the General Secretary of the Holy Childhood Association, and I am very happy to announce to you, that I will be joining you for the Sixth Annual Worldwide Children s Eucharistic Holy Hour.

This is also the 100th anniversary of Blessed Francisco; he was one of the three children from Fatima, of the little shepherds, who always wanted to pray before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.

I m inviting you to join with me and with Blessed Francisco s and the prayers of the schoolchildren who will be gathered at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington DC on First Friday, October 3rd.

We will have a lovely procession crown a lovely statue of Our Lady of Fatima, and pray before the Blessed Sacrament and join in the World Mission Rosary.

EWTN will broadcast this event to over 40 different nations, spiritually uniting the prayers of our world s children.

I am encouraging all parishes all the schools to gather children and families before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, giving them the unique opportunity to participate in this Worldwide Eucharistic Holy Hour, to pray for peace in our families and in our world.

The Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI counts on the prayers of the children he knows that you are part of the mission of the church, so please join in!

May God Bless you , Guide you and Keep you safe!
