There are still signs of Catholic militancy in America.
This can be seen in the growth of the pro-life movement
and in the rejection of blasphemous films like The Da
However, there is still much work to be done.
Those who seek to remove God and His holy law from
our society fight unceasingly on. Abortion murders innocent unborn babies; the institution of the family is weakened by impure customs and threatened by the
legalization of homosexual “marriage;” the sexual revolution pervades popular culture especially in television, media, movies and the Internet.
However, the worst consequence of this secularist offensive is the rejection of God. In so doing, we disdain
His wise and loving action and we refuse His grace upon
the citizens of our country.
And without His grace, how can we survive?
How can our leaders properly govern our nation?
From where will they get wisdom and strength to solve
the great and complex problems that abound?
Besides the abovementioned moral problems, how can we maintain our treasured national identity, while adopting a just solution for the immigration dilemma?
How can we solve our need to become self-sufficient in energy? How can we resolve our economic problems?
How can we maintain a wise, strong and balanced military strategy?
Holy Rosary Crusade of Reparation
After World War II, Austria was divided between the
United States, France, the United Kingdom, and the Soviet Union. The Soviet section was the richest one and
included the capitol city of Vienna. The Viennese were
subject to the all the atrocities of communist occupation.
In 1946, Fr. Petrus Pavlicek, after making a pilgrimage
to Mariazell, Austria’s principle Marian shrine, heard an interior voice that said: “Do as I say and there will be peace.”
To obey this inspiration of Our Lady, Fr. Pevlicek founded the Holy Rosary Crusade of Reparation in 1947.
This Crusade consisted of a call to the faithful of Vienna
to participate in public rosary processions in the streets of
the city. The intention of the rosary was for the end of
communism in their country and the world. At first, the
processions were miniscule, but they gradually grew to
In 1955, after eight years of spreading the word about
the Crusade throughout Austria, the rosary processions
would often have half a million participants – about one
tenth of the Austrian population. Finally, through the
help of Our Lady, the Soviet forces inexplicably pulled
out of Austria in October of 1955.
2008 Public Square Rosary Crusade
At Fatima in 1917, Our Lady made it very clear that
the Rosary is the supernatural solution to our earthly
problems. Father Pavlic also saw this as a solution and
promoted a national Rosary Crusade that saved Austria from Communism.
Just like in Austria, the Rosary can save America. In The Secret of the Rosary, Saint Louis de Montfort states:
"Public prayer is far more powerful than private prayer to appease the anger of God and call down His Mercy and Holy Mother Church, guided by the Holy Spirit has always advocated public prayer in times of public tragedy and suffering.”
That’s why TFP-America Needs Fatima is launching
the 2008 Public Square Rosary Crusade.
Our goal is to counter the destructive secular agenda,
asking God to guide every aspect of our society. As human efforts have failed to solve America’s key problems, we ask His immediate help for our nation’s leadership.
He will hear our prayers, especially if we pray the Rosary of His Blessed Mother. Without prayer, and specifically the Rosary, we will not find solutions to our nation’s many problems.
Last year, the TFP and its America Needs Fatima campaign organized over 2,000 Rosary Rallies. In 2008,
we’re planning 3,000 rallies for October 11 – the Saturday closest to October 13 – the day God worked the miracle of the sun at Fatima, Portugal in 1917. America needs a monumental miracle of conversion.
And it can happen!
