Hundreds of thousands of Catholics nationwide are preparing to pray the rosary in public this Saturday, October 10,imploring God, through the intercession of His Most Holy Mother, to intercede and save America. In more than 14,000 public places from coast to coast, lay Catholics associated with America Needs Fatima will hold their annual Public Square Rosary Rallies.
The rallies will highlight the importance of the Blessed Mother’s call to conversion at Fatima, Portugal, in 1917, and beg God to save America from so much sin and chaos.
As people turn away from God, it’s harder to find solutions to our nation’s growing number of political, economic and moral problems.
Many Americans realize that we’re on the wrong path. And that we’re suffering from the evil consequences of such sins as abortion and same-sex “marriage.”
Therefore, it’s urgent that we, as individuals and as a nation, look to God and His Blessed Mother for supernatural solutions. There has never been a greater need for amendment of life, prayer and penance. If we would only turn to Our Lady, and do what she requested at Fatima, people would receive the graces of courage, comfort and hope to turn things around in America.
In 14,108 locations, rally captains are gearing up for the 2015 Public Square Rosary Crusade. It will happen on October 10, from 12:00 noon to 1:00 PM local time.
It’s encouraging to see how the concept of doing a Rosary Rally in a public place is catching on. For example, in Saipan, there will be at least 10 rallies. In South Africa, there will be over 230 rallies, and in Canada there will be more than 125 rallies.
The holy rosary is such a powerful prayer. This truth is brought home to us by several famous historic facts. We need only recall how Pope Saint Pius V convoked Christendom to pray the rosary asking God for victory in the crusade against the invading Turks. The result? The famous victorious sea battle at Lepanto in 1571! After the Turkish fleet was thoroughly beaten, the holy pontiff established the Feast of the Holy Rosary in thanksgiving to the Mother of God which is celebrated every year on October 7.
Today, the thought of 14,108 Public Square Rosary Rallies taking place all across the globe gives so much hope and inspiration. We once again count on the Blessed Mother’s intervention. How could she not be touched by these events and work wonders on that day? She cannot refuse the prayers of so many of her devout children, who beg for her help!
Our child-like trust in the Blessed Mother is illustrated by these words in the Memorare prayer: “Never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought they intercession, was left unaided.” Placing our trust and prayerful affirmation of faith in Our Lady, we can be certain we will not be the first ones in history to be left unaided by her! She will never let us down if we have faith!
The national prayer event is sponsored by The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) and its America Needs Fatima campaign.
