LINGAYEN, June 1, 2013 – In what is arguably the most touching moment of the LKV so far, yesterday morning`s mass celebrant asked KFCs and parents to pray over each other in an unscripted move of the Holy Spirit.

After asking everyone present to promise to "follow Jesus" and to "pray always", Fr. Victor Embuido, spiritual director of CFC - Pangasinan, asked parents to come down from the bleachers to pray over their kids.


Fr. Embuido, who is also the parish priest of Our Lady of Purification, Binmaley, asked parents to entrust their children to Jesus and Mary.

After, the kids, who were asked to kneel down for the pray over, took their turn in praying for their parents, some of whom got teary-eyed in the process.

Even the service team could not help but be moved by the sight.

Head of the Luzon Kids` Village (LKV) photographers` team Rachel Paningbatan posted a Facebook status shortly after, saying, "Watching kids praying over their parents during Mass, a very overwhelming experience."

Another LKV photographer, Ruel Tenerife, who took awesome shots of the pray-over, remarked candidly, "Namiss ko tuloy `yung family ko! (This made me miss my family!)"

Keep the family together

After the pray over, Fr. Embuido reminded the everyone to go to mass regularly as a family.

"The family that prays together stays together," he said, citing a well-known saying by Fr. Peyton.

Some 81 parents came to the LKV with their kids, while most of the KFCs were accompanied by their coordinators.

The LKV 2013 is ongoing at the Narciso Ramos Sports and Civic Center in Lingayen, Pangasinan.
