When you pray the rosary you also pray for Pope Francis that it can continue to guide the church as Saint Peter did with the other apostles at the very beginning," Archbishop Caccia told the children in his welcome message.

The "One Million Children Praying the Rosary” was organized by ACN that started in Caracas, Venezuela, in 2005. The campaign was launched in the Philippines in 2016.

In his message, Archbishop Caccia pointed out our the three important teachings of Mary as a mother, tried to understand the things that happened in the life of Jesus.

"So, let us start our prayer asking Mary first to help us to understand the life of Jesus deeply and understand our life."

"Second, let us always live our joy and sufferings together with Mary like a mother."

"And third, make us doing something which makes Mary happy because we are united and we are at peace." (Jheng M. Prado/RCAM-AOC)
