The ACN Campaign for One Million Children Praying the Rosary for Peace and Unity is an invitation to God who is Love to come and dwell in the hearts of all, thereby uniting all people to live together and work for peace which in turn will bring happiness.
Why One Million? It could be more; it could be less. As long as we are one in asking God to fill everyone with His presence, so that everyone will live in love. And when St. Augustine said: “Love and do what you will”, he meant that a person who loves will not do anything that will hurt others, and a person who loves will always think of the good of others.
Why the Children? Jesus said: “Let the little children come to me…It is to such as these that the Kingdom of God belongs.” I observed the simplicity, the fidelity and the humility of children manifested in the more than one thousand children praying the rosary during the ACN Campaign for One Million Children Praying the Rosary at the San Jose Academy in Navotas City, Philippines These childlike virtues inspire everyone to open their hearts and welcome God in their lives.
Why the Rosary? The Rosary is about the life of Jesus. On praying the Rosary , our Blessed Mother Mary brings Jesus to us. In praying the Rosary, our Blessed Mother Mary brings us to Jesus. In Jesus, we feel God’s presence in our lives. God’s presence will fill us with His love. His love will enable us to live in unity which will bring us peace which in turn will give us happiness.
