Children and families today find it difficult to memorize traditional prayers. They are busy with sports, computer games, friends, and social life. Moreover, they are bombarded with bad influences from our faith-free society and temptations from the power of darkness surrounding them. Realizing the challenges our children and families face and hoping to give parents a hand in fostering a strong faith life and habit of prayer, Rev. Peter G. Vu has written this Prayer Book for Children and Family. It is designed for children and families to pray together.
Rev. Peter G. Vu has been a Catholic priest of the Diocese of Grand Rapids, Michigan for twenty years and also a chaplain at Grand Rapids Home for Veterans. He was born in Saigon City (currently Ho Chi Minh City), Viet Nam and was a young boy when the Viet Nam War ended. He witnessed the war with great horror and deep appreciation for peace. He grew up with the Communist government system and endured many hardships for more than a decade. What helped Rev. Vu and his countrymen tremendously during those dark days was their faith and prayers. His love for prayers and meditations blossomed. He also exchanged new ideas about prayers and mediations with his Buddhist friends.
Topic of the Week: Children
“And people were bringing children to Him [Jesus] that He might touch them; but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this, He became indignant and said to them, ‘Let the children come to me; do not prevent them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Amen, I say to you, whoever does not accept the Kingdom of God like a child will not enter it.’ Then, He embraced them, blessed them, and placed His hands on them.” (Mark 4:35-41)
