The forecast for August 22, 2009 at noon did not look inviting for a public square rosary rally. There was a chance of rain all day, and the sky was very overcast.
Undaunted by this, 21 America Needs Fatima members and friends gathered to pray the rosary at the corner of Buford and Huguenot Roads in Richmond, Virginia.
This was a good location that provided a high amount of visibility.
We started with the joyful mysteries while we waited for everyone to show up. The rest of the rally consisted of the intentions, songs, two more rosaries, consecration to Our Lady, and litanies. The entire time the rain held off. As we finished the last prayer (we had been praying for about 1.5 hours), I was internally asking Our Lady whether we should continue.
Just then, I felt a rain drop, and rain started coming down fast. I realized that this was clearly Our Lady's answer, and we closed the rally.
