Let the Children Lead

Join our school children in prayer

Children across the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend invite faithful of every age to join them in praying the Rosary on the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, May 13, at 10 a.m. or on your own time.

Will you join them?

Luminous Mysteries of the Rosary

May this rosary, led by our children, serve as an invitation to all families to become families of prayer. In praying the rosary, take Mary’s hand as she walks us through the life of her Son. The Immaculate Heart of Mary leads us into the Sacred Heart of Jesus where we will find peace. May this peace reign in our families, our nation, and our world. Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us. St. Jacinta, pray for us. St. Francisco, pray for us.

Our Mother revealed to the children at Fatima that her Immaculate Heart will triumph. We don’t know exactly how that will happen, but it must begin with each one of us, in our own hearts, our own conversion from sin, our own repentance, our own prayer and sacrifices, just as Mary asked for these things from the shepherd children in their own lives… So that’s Fatima; that’s the Gospel: penance, conversion and growth in faith, hope and love… That’s the way to salvation.
Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades
