Catholics may feel helpless in the face of so much evil in the world,
primarily indicated by the workings of the law and judicial departments,
and especially with what is now vomited by the Mass Media and promoted in
the schools. Let us recall to mind that we Catholics have a power at our
fingertips that nobody can take from us. As long as we fulfill our personal
obligations and remain in the state of grace, our prayers and sacrifices
work to invisibly obtain graces for the Church and world to counteract the
spread of evil. We must also have faith enough to persevere in this even
though we do not see the results ourselves. The Lord is greatly please by
this perseverance and faith.
We now have another great opportunity on May 1st to pray the Rosary
publicly for a like cause.
We all know how sinful the world has become, and how sorely the Church
today needs prayers. The "errors" from Russia that Our Lady of the Rosary
at Fatima mentioned in 1917 were not limited merely to "communism". The
godless errors of materialism, liberalism and humanism have continued
throughout this century to infect the world to such an extent that the
chastisement of God has now been placed upon us in a more subtle and
serious manner: Whereas the usual wars are a grace of physical punishment
and correction that work to convert men through a tangible suffering and
fear, the more serious chastisements God gives take the form of spiritual
catastrophes that infect the clergy and faithful with heresies -killing
souls eternally- in such an intangible way that the very organ of man that
should be able to recognize and reject them -the mind- is debilitated by
the heresy such that it cannot often see clearly the poison that is harming
The Church has always taught that heresy is worse than physical murder
because it kills souls eternally in hell rather than only temporally. The
world is calling down the vengeance of God by its sins, not only because of
abortion and sodomy, but even more so because of the heresies, sacrileges
and blasphemies that are being today promoted within the Church.
It is the health of the Church that ultimately determines the health of
We must strengthen the Mystical Body of Christ. Our Lady gave us the
remedy in 1917 by emphasizing devotion and reparation to Her Immaculate
Heart, primarily through the daily recitation of the Rosary to obtain grace
for the individual, Church, and the world.
Why gather together in a group to say the Rosary when you can say it at
home? God loves public prayer also, that is one reason He ordained that we
give public worship every Sunday and Holy Day. We can see the special
graces that have been given when we recall the victories of Our Lady that
had been wrought by the Rosary at Lepanto, Brazil, Austria and other
places. In Austria, for example, in 1955 where only 10% of the population
in that country pledged to say the Rosary, the Communists of Russia all of
a sudden agreed to its Independence. Historians are still wondering how or
why such an unprecedented thing happened!
Therese Neumann, the Bavarian mystic who, according to the Guinness Book
of World Records, "survived 35 years on the 'bread' of the Holy Eucharist
at mass each morning at Konnersreuth, Germany", was asked three months
before her death in 1962 if it was the prayers of the Austrians that had
purchased their freedom seven years before. Her answer?
"Definitely, definitely, it was the prayers and many Rosaries of the
Austrian people which purchased them the freedom from Russian domination."
Ultimately we must be satisfied with the promise of God's Mother Herself
who promised that,
"In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph, Russia will be converted,
and an era of peace will be conceded to humanity."
Let us not be tempted to take this promise as an excuse not to fulfill
our obligations to help bring this about as soon as possible. Yes, the war
is promised to be won in the end but...
.....will you and your loved ones be casualties in this war before then?
We must work to see to it that we have the least amount of casualties,
and that the victories come as soon as possible. It is a matter of saving
your soul, and that of others, before the war is won. Let us help diminish
the amount of time in which Our Lord and Our Lady are greatly offended.
Can you make the sacrifice to attend on May 1st? The sacrifice itself
will do much for the cause. If not, can you resolve on that day and hour at
least to say your rosary and unite you intentions with those who will be in
front of the U.S. Capitol? If you can make that pledge, it would help
strengthen the faith of those actually attending if you could give word of
your pledge to the contact below.
