This program started in 1997 by Fr. Antoine Thomas, csj, dedicated to leading children into the mystery of the real presence in the Holy Eucharist following the words of wisdom of Saint John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI. Jesus Himself told us, “Let the children come to me and do not hinder them; for to such belong the Kingdom of Heaven” (Matthew 19:14). Blessed Saint John Paul II, had made this request, “I urge priests, religious and lay people to continue and redouble their efforts to teach the younger generations the meaning and value of Eucharistic adoration and devotion” (From the Vatican, 28 May, 1996). So, how else can we respond than to bring children to the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus! Visit Children of Hope’s website to learn more about children adoration and to start a program at your own parish and at the local Catholic School.
