On Saturday, February 14, in Brecksville, Ohio, Catholics honored Our Lady's Fatima message calling for prayer and penance.
It was a shivering cold, snowy day as they publicly prayed the rosary in reparation to Our Lady's sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, yet no one left early.
Lydia, who is more than 8o years old, stood for a solid hour reciting the prayers of the America Needs Fatima rosary rally without complaint, although it was clear that she was suffering a lot from the snow and cold.
Lydia uses a brace on her back to help her stand up. Her example was inspiring to everyone as she prayed in a clear and fervent tone. One could not help but think of how much her sacrifice must have consoled Our Lady. The spirit of the rally did not go unnoticed by passing motorists, who continuously honked their approval.
One man stopped his car to ask how the rosary rallies were scheduled. Joseph, a rosary captain from Lakewood quickly responded, "On the Saturday closest to the 13th, every month."
We hope and pray the driver will return next month on March 14th and that many others will join him as the Public Square rosary rallies continue to implore Our Lady's powerful intercession for the conversion of our nation as we ask her to save America.
