These new ADP-VV groups of prayer - as (in a certain way) our founder said in a radio interview in Rome (with Radio Mater) - "take a little of their inspiration from Saint Francis of Assisi, when many lay people (seeing this life that so closely followed the Gospel, in all and for all...) said to Saint Francis of Assisi – as today they say also to me and to my brethren”: "But how can we also live your lifestyle today, that is so poor and so difficult?” "Don’t worry," responded Saint Francis, "there is a place also for you!” "So he was inspired to create the so-called Franciscan Third Order, where also many lay people fascinated with his lifestyle could draw from this marvelous Spirituality, closely following the Gospel.
In a similar way, today as well (for around 2 years now) the Mother of God made me, along with my brethren, understand (in a certain way) time after time through many requests (of many families and people), that there was the need for this: that is, to have many people join us in our lifestyle, which is and was the desire of so many. So then we all prayed together to understand concretely what was to be done...and so also here, we have started to fulfill this other need presented to us by the Spirit. So we immediately started with the first interested group of Prayer, and it has been a continual explosion of grace. In less than two years we have grown from 0 to 51 prayer groups in Italy, all inscribed (cf. Enrollment form below) and all of whom have already promised to strive to go regularly to the Sacraments (especially to Holy Confession and to receive Holy Communion on Sundays). They also strive to pray the Meditated Holy Rosary once a week in their group, and to do good works whenever possible (this also includes helping us in our great work of Evangelization…)." Above all they must persevere in the prayer that the Lord may send us many workers to care for the many and abundant fruits by which we recognize the good tree (cf. Luke 6:44) because the harvest is growing even more in abundance, and...the workers are always few! But we give thanks to Heaven for those that there are (those who are totally consecrated). They are beautiful and young, as Holy Scripture says: "Certainly children are a gift from God, the fruit of the womb, a grace. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children born in one’s youth." (Ps 127:3-4), because through their youthful life they get straight to the heart, acting purely on the Gospel (by which they want to reach Holiness at any cost – cf. 1 Thess. 4:3a), getting through to the hearts of all, and often also to the hardest of hearts! … Above all, through the armor of the Prayer that Our Lady of Fatima has given to all the spiritual children: "Do you want to offer Prayers and Sacrifices for the conversion of sinners? Look, many souls go to hell because there is no one who sacrifices themselves and intercedes for them!..." (cf. Fatima 19th August 1917).
Especially because of this, a part of the VV Rule says this regarding our A.D.P. – V.V. Prayer Groups:
"In regards to all those - touched by the Spirit - who (in one way or in another)… would like to concretely be a part of our V.V. Prayer groups called 'THE ALLIES OF THE LITTLE ONES'…, it must first be explained to them how these already existing groups function. Then, if their insistence or interest for the Prayer is seen, they must complete, with simplicity and express liberty, the form (found here), where in a few words we will explain all in regards to the Organization of the single city groups, and even more importantly, the simple Promises to make to Mary, Mother of Jesus, for the Greater Glory of God and the Salvation of the Most Souls Possible, for this is the Aim and the Eternal Crown of our Faith" (cf. 1 Pt. 1:9). Amen !
