Oct. 15, 2017. Prayers for Children. Today there is so much devastation due to earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, drought, war, poverty.....As a global family, we think of the children and the survival of the family. Importantly, the family unit is where children learn love, values and social skills. In shared humanity and care, let us pray, bless and direct our energy to all children and families in our world and communities. "What can you do to promote peace? Go home and love your family." Mother Teresa.
