Why gather the children of the world?
annual “Worldwide Children’s Holy Hour”
is beautiful in its simplicity and yet more
powerful than a nuclear explosion. As Our Lord said,
“Let the children come to
Me, and do not hinder them...” (Matthew. 19:14).
What is the”
Worldwide Children’s Holy Hour”?
from around the globe, from the smallest of villages
to those in the largest of cities, spiritually unite
and follow along with the Holy
Hour program, as they experience the joy
of knowing that children just like themselves are also
gathered before Our Lord
in the Blessed Sacrament in their own parish churches
and chapels, praying the same prayers for their own
family and all the families of the world.
This Holy Hour is for all the
children of the world: Catholic school students, Religious
Education students and home schooled children. It is
broadcast live from the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception
in Washington, D.C., to help parishes, schools, and
families throughout the world focus on Eucharistic unity.
The full Broadcast
Schedule will be announced later.
The Holy Hour is a response
to Our Lady’s request at Fatima on June 13, 1917:
“My Immaculate Heart will
be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God.”
In her own gentle and motherly way she was inviting
the three little shepherds to enter into the “School
of Her Immaculate Heart.”
sent His Angels on many occasions as messengers to bring
important “news from heaven” especially
when He has something important to reveal to the world.
Angel of Peace appeared
in Fatima, Portugal, to teach the children special prayers
and how to adore Jesus in the Eucharist. The angel also
helped them spiritually prepare to receive a message
for the world from the Queen of Heaven. This message
has come to be known as “Heaven’s Peace
Plan” and the “Little Way” of spirituality.

making reparation for those who do not love Him, and
also a special way to make reparation to the Immaculate
Heart of His mother and our spiritual mother for the
ungratefulness of so many souls. Reparation includes
prayer and offering our daily duties and the every day
little sacrifices of life, out of love, in the same
way as the beautiful doctrine of the “Little Way”
of which St.Therese of Lisieux, Doctor of the Church,
made known to the Church and world.
educating our children: to follow the little way to
Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, is a powerful
means to initiate a “New Springtime” for
our children. First, we gather children around the world
in the Eucharistic Presence of Our Lord, and then we
begin to establish “Children’s Eucharistic
Adoration” programs in our parishes, schools and
families. The fruit will be that the children, in the
order of grace, turn, and begin to evangelize their
own families, and through the united prayers of the
children around the globe, the families of the world.
Popes and the Children
of the World!
The request for the prayers of
children to change the world and to obtain heaven’s
attention is not new to
our Holy Fathers. Pope Benedict
XV called upon the children of the world to pray
for an end to World War I, and their prayers were answered.
Only a few months later the “Angel of Peace”
appeared to the little shepherds at Fatima.
In 1992, at the close of the
International Year of the Family, John Paul II, in his
Letter to the World’s Children”
entrusted today’s family crisis to the prayers
2007 we have the
Blessing of Pope Benedict XVI for
the Worldwide Children’s Holy Hour.
Please print out the Holy Hour
Program, present it to your parish pastor, school principal,
or teacher, and request that they allow the children
in their care to gather in our shrines, cathedrals,
parish churches and chapels.
