Makati City, the Philippines, 25 October 2019 -- On 25 October 2019, the elementary students of Don Bosco Technical Institute, Makati, led by their Rector Fr. Jose Favie Faldas, SDB, and their Principal Mr Dondon Buensuceso, PhD., prayed the Holy Rosary together with other children from different parts of the world. They participated in the campaign entitled “One Million Children Praying the Rosary” for unity and peace in the world organized annually by the Aid in the Church in Need (ACN).
The “One Million Children Praying the Rosary Campaign” takes its inspiration from St. Pope Pius IX who said “give me one million families praying the Rosary and the world is saved.”
The event was made more special by the presence of the Papal Nuncio, His Excellency Archbishop Gabrielle Caccia, who gave a short catechesis on the Rosary to the children and joined in the prayer. Other important visitors were also present for the occasion, among them the following: Henrietta T. De Villa, Chief Executive Officer of ACN, Philippines, Mrs. Delza V. Lazatin, CFO, ACN, Philippines, Fr. Reynaldo Romero, Ecclesiastical Assistant, ACN, Philippines, and Mr. Jonathan Luciano, National Director of ACN, Philippines.
The prayer experience concluded with the “Children’s Consecration to our Lady” and the Apostolic Blessing from the Papal Nuncio.
