The fruit of Fr. Antoine Thomas’ work is bearing fruit as more and more parishes organise monthly Eucharistic Adoration for children. While there used to be some resistance in the beginning, it is now clear that many preconceived ideas about the ability of children to keep still and to be silent have now been greatly reduced. In fact, it is always so edifying to pray with these little ones whom our Lord takes delight in. They can certainly be silent. In a typical session of about an hour, there are at least three moments of total silence and prostration before the Blessed sacrament. Starting the children young is an advantage, certainly. Praise God!
