Those who participated in the Public Rosary Rallies were remembered in a special way at Fatima on October 13. On the huge plaza at the popular Marian shrine, over 13,000 red and white roses were displayed in honor of 7,515 rosary captains and 6,000 other rally supporters.
The 7,515 red roses corresponded to the same number of spiritual roses in the form of Public Square Rosary Rallies across the country. The rallies are a special project of The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property and its America Needs Fatima campaign. A special delegation of campaign members went to Fatima on October 13, the 94th anniversary of the miracle of the sun to deliver the roses.
Many pilgrims from different countries were there on this special day, and helped the five-member delegation deliver the roses to Our Lady.
Together with the red roses, the delegation unfurled a large banner with the names of the7,513 Rosary Rally Captains and over 6,000 rally supporters who helped support financially this year’s Public Square Rosary Rallies. This offering closed with prayers for all involved in making the 2011 Public Square Rosary Rallies a great success.
