Family Rosary Philippines Celebrates Sixtieth Anniversary

11/10/2011

Submitted by Father James Phalan, CSC

 
The Sixtieth Anniversary of the Family Rosary Crusade in Philippines was celebrated the way that FatherPhilippinesB Peyton would want it, with the launching of A MILLION ROSARIES FOR THE WORLD, a wonderful campaign that wants to show that with the Rosary, A POWERFUL PRAYER IS IN OUR HANDS!

About 3000 people gathered at the University of Santo Tomás where Father Peyton began the ¨FRC,¨ as it is affectionately called, in 1951 to mark decades of strengthening family and faith in the Philippines in this ministry that reaches distant islands of the Philippines, through our extensive lay missionary network and nationally respected TV programming.

Now the power of Philippine prayer is to be directed to pray for peace in the whole world over the next 200 days as hundreds of thousands have dedicated themselves already to pray the Rosary each day for a different country, beginning in Africa. Our goal is to have the commitment of 1 million: A MILLION ROSES FOR THE WORLD. PhilippinesA

His Excellency Luis Antonio Tagle, beloved Bishop of Imus, Cavite, Philippines, was the main celebrant of the Eucharist and preached an inspiring homily so that even the rain that started to fall seemed like a blessing!

The joy of the day and the love that all present shares for Jesus and Mary was radiating on the smiling faces as people sang, danced and prayed, as Filipinos do so well! PhilippinesD
