first Rosary Crusade
(outdoor public Rosary) took place last year on the occasion of the
hundredth anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima. The
second took place on Saint Patrick's day. In both cases we
stood on the public sidewalk outside of the fire station on
Hillsboro Boulevard, just a bit south of the church. As you
will see from the slogan on the banner for March 17, this year's
intention was considerably more controversial for modern day America
and modernist Catholics. We were pleasantly surprised
(relieved!) that the reactions of those driving by were generally
more enthusiastic than they were back in October—even
some Catholics alive today know nothing about Fatima, but nearly
everyone alive today about the nature of marriage!
we had a woman stop her car to honk and curse at us. One of
our people responded: "We will pray for you." But for the rest
of the hour, many people seemed enthusiastic. Of course it is hard
to distinguish between between hostile and friendly horn blowing,
but the smiles and the thumbs up are impossible to miss.
If you live
nearby and would like to join us for our next public Rosary, send
Father an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org)
and we will put you on our invitation list.
