Rosary Crusade for Marriage—17 March A.D. 2018
Ave Maria!

    Our parish's 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!

    Early on, 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 ( and we will put you on our invitation list.

A little bit of discussion before the Public Rosary (and after cleaning the church and draping the statues and pictures in purple for Passion Sundayit was a very busy day.  The megaphone on the table in front of Father is very useful for having the Rosary heard above the noise of the traffic.  However, it is a bit difficult to get used to counting the beads of the Rosary with the left hand while worrying about the push-to-talk switch on the megaphone in the right hand.  Hopefully, we had more eleven Ave decades than nines.
