HOW THE CHILDREN'S PRAYER TO THE HOLY FAMILY CAME TO BE
On June 3, l998 a beautiful young lady was delivered into the hands of her creator. This young woman had been sexually abused at the age of two and for the remaining 33 years of her life suffered from border-line personality disorder. A few weeks after her daughter's death, her mother awoke with THE CHILDREN'S PRAYER TO THE HOLY FAMILY on her lips.
A short time later during a religious retreat, the mother was told by a Claretian missionary priest that the only way to expose the pedophiles was through the power of prayer. The prayer was printed and distributed to family, friends, and various religious orders. Soon afterward the sex scandal in the Catholic Church was revealed. Letters began arriving saying how beautiful the prayer was and how desperately it was needed.
Pope John Paul II responded withthis letter.
