For Little Children
“Dear Lord, in the years of Your visible life on earth with us, You dearly loved little children. We ask now that You preserve and protect our little ones in these days when so many influences endanger their innocence; when advocates of perversion seek to enter even the kindergarten to defile their hearts and minds. Give us good teachers who will counsel and guide them so they will come through this period of their lives unscathed and in friendship with You and with all that is wholesome and good.” F. E. Callaghan
This feast reminds us that there are modern day, 21st century Rachel’s who can’t be comforted because their children are no more: because of famine, war, and abortion.
