The Catholic Pontifical and charity foundation, Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) International, is inviting children from across the globe to join the “One million children praying the Rosary” campaign for countries experiencing war and hunger, especially those in Africa’s Sahel region, which has been described as the “world’s most neglected and conflict-ridden region”.
Announcing the event slated for October 18, ACN notes that the children will entrust the people living in the countries experiencing religious persecution, including those in the Sahel region, where people are unable to live in peace, “unto the powerful and loving hands of the divine Father”.
“Concerned with the situations of war, violence and profound poverty that continue to exist in countries such as Ukraine, Nigeria, Myanmar, Pakistan, or regions such as the Middle East, and the Sahel, in Africa, ACN wishes to entrust, in a special way, all those places where people are unable to live in peace unto the powerful and loving hands of the divine Father, through the powerful intercession of the Mother of God,” the peace entity has said in the September 20 report.
This year’s prayer campaign is to focus on “the Father’s love for the world”, the Pontifical charity foundation that supports the people of God in areas experiencing religious persecution and other forms of hardships has said.
Announcing the annual event, which has in the past attracted huge participation from across the globe, ACN says, “Aid to the Church in Need is once again inviting parishes, kindergartens, schools and families to join in the annual prayer initiative ‘One million children praying the Rosary’, which will take place on 18 October, this year.”
