Just wanted to remind people that these Rosary Rallies are taking place tomorrow all over the country. The one in downtown Chicago in Daley Plaza takes place at Noon. Remember the power of prayer and particularly the power of praying the rosary! We are Catholics first and foremost on this site. I hope that at least some of us go to these rallies!

If any video links for the Chicago event get put online, please post them!

Finally something we Catholics can do as a group to show our support for religious freedom in America. Hoping everyone has information for the Public Square Rosary Rally in your area. Our church bulletin had the following article this week:




"At noon, on Saturday, October 13th, there will be a public Rosary Rally at the Putnam County Court House on the square in Cookeville.




One can hardly disagree that America has turned her back on God in so many ways. Secularists have tried to drive religion and morality out of the public square and out of our schools. But yet, public rosaries have blunted the advance of abortion, accounting for the closure of one clinic per month. Same sex marriage, pornography, pedophilia, and the list ones on - your Rosary Rally will be a public act of reparation for these sins hurled against the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus.




Find peace in knowing that the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph over evil. It is a great privilege to be among those who trust in her triumph and honor her in the public square. Imagine 8,000 Public Square Rosary Rallies occurring all over America simultaneously. This historic campaign will hasten God's victory and attract His desperately needed blessings on America.




Come and join your fellow Catholics in our plea to God for American's future."



I hope your church has scheduled a Rosary Rally in your home town and you will share the information with others as we pray for God's blessings on America.




- Elizabeth

Public procession and recitation of the rosary at sacred apparition sites of the Blessed Virgin Mary are experiences of a lifetime!

At Lourdes, the Blessed Virgin Mary requested that we "come in Procession". www.youtube.com

Today, October 13, is the anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima - www.youtube.com

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us...poor sinners. theheart

How about you give me his email and I will copy my above response and then ask him what he thinks? Or copy Elizabeth's and send that. Or send both of ours.




And....if "our country isn't at some cataclysmic hour", then WHY is our Catholic Church taking such a stance?






Why would you accuse me of something like that? I quoted the bulletin on his parish website. My email was:





Hello,

I am a Catholic, although I am not a parishoner at St. Thomas Aquinas.

It is important that the Church stay out of politics and not endorse
candidates or parties. It is important that we recognize citizens can
be good members of the Church no matter who they vote for.

I am disturbed by a notice in your parish bulletin about a public Rosary Rally.

It says:

"One can hardly disagree that America has turned her back on God in so
many ways. Secularists have tried to drive religion and morality out
of the public square and out of our schools."

This is certainly NOT true. It smacks of political rhetoric
attempting to get people to vote for the Republican candidates.

Please remember to stay neutral in elections and do not give the
impression that Catholics should vote for one candidate or party.

Thank you.

As far as his response that "our country isn't at some cataclysmic hour" I'm sure the large majority of Americans would agree, as would, I venture, the majority of American Catholic priests. A hundred years from now 2012 will be seen as just another unremarkable year.

Cathy, what would be unremarkable about 2012? Or even about the past 10 years?

I believe that the US and the rest of the world is at a crossroads. We all need to change now.

Billy Graham just released a statement on Thursday which said, "I believe America is at a crossroads."

"I will turn 94 the day after the upcoming election, and I believe America is at a crossroads, according to the statement. I hope millions of Americans will join me in praying for our nation and to vote for candidates who will support the biblical definition of marriage, protect the sanctity of life and defend our religious freedoms."

eyepopping Seriously? America HAS turned her back on God in many ways. And secularists aren't trying; they ARE driving religion and morality out of the public square and out of our schools! Kid, you haven't got a clue.

Great idea Mary! I just got back from the rosary rally in Huntley. A lady there distributed copies of the Obama/Romney comparison flyer!! clap And....she had gotten them earlier in the a.m. at a prayer breakfast where someone (from another county) was distributing it during the breakfast. So, the word is out!!!


They also knew about the Stand Up for Freedom Rally next weekend and since I had already seen a copy of our church's bulletin for tomorrow, I let them know there would be information in our bulletin about where/when. thumbsup (I'm so proud of my church for posting things like the rosary rally and the stand up for religious freedom rally, combined with the inserts that our IL bishops are including lately!!!)

I was priveleged to be at the Rosary Rally in Zanesville, OH. Didn't have the Obama/Romney comparison flyer.

However, Muskegum County is having a religous liberty rally at the county courthouse tomorrow at three, so the word is getting out in Ohio as well.
