The Eucharistic Crusade is a powerful tool
of sanctification. Through it, children learn to get in the
habit of praying and doing sacrifices. However, children will
do their duties in the Eucharistic Crusade well only if their
parents are behind them, to stimulate them, and remind them
about filling up their treasure sheet.
How my child can become a member of the Eucharistic Crusade?
A child becomes full pledge in the Eucharistic Crusade when
he is officially received in one of the three Degrees of the
Crusade, namely PAGE, CRUSADER or KNIGHT (HANDMAID for girls).
Meanwhile, a child is being introduced to the Eucharistic
Crusade when he is subscribed to the monthly Magazine, The
Guardian of Crusaders, and attends the meetings of the Crusade.
#2 What are the obligations
of a member of the Eucharistic Crusade?
|-The basic obligations,
common to all levels
||to say the morning offering,
with the intention
of the month given in the bulletin;
and to fill out and send out the total of the Month's
|-The special obligations
proper to each degree in the Crusade:
||Pages: Just the basic
obligations, along with their usual morning & night prayers.
||Crusaders: on top
of the basic obligations, a Crusader must
|| -say at least
one decade of the rosary each day,
-receive Holy Communion at least every Sunday, whenever
-go to Confession at least once a month,
-make a Sacrifice each day &
-fight against the dominant fault.
||Knights: On top of
the obligations of a Crusader, a knight must
||-say the five decades of
the Rosary each day,
- go to confession every second week,
- make a daily Spiritual Communion, or make a visit to
the Blessed Sacrament, and
- do 15 minutes of meditation each day.
||(The child does not need
to say these prayers double, if they are already
part of the family prayers)
Is my child bound under pain of sin by these promises?
No, but like everybody, he should not be slothful about his
life of prayer.
