Some 50 members of TFP-America Needs Fatima pray the Rosary and offer public reparation and protest against the P*** Christ blasphemy, in front of the Edward Tyler Nahem Art Gallery on 57th Street in New York City yesterday, September 27th.
Despite the fact that we 50 people strong, the media took absolutely no notice of our presence. We were totally invisible to them. Not a picture. Not a word. They could not see 50 people praying in a very public place about a very controversial issue.
Even worse -- an article today in the Huffington Post proclaims that there were no protestors in front of the Edward Tyler Nahem Gallery yesterday. The article says “no one from the right in sight…” See their full story here:
Because of the scaffolding around the art gallery, some of us stood across the street from the gallery, while other members of America Needs Fatima stood directly in front of the gallery and peacefully protested the exhibit – the blasphemous exhibit that shows a crucifix turned upside down and stuck inside of a jar of urine.
The signs and banners were made by volunteers of TFP-America Needs Fatima and held with great spirit, and with the sincere conviction of the importance of this public act of reparation and the urgent need to console Our Lord for such a terrible sacrilege that was being committed inside the art gallery.
Most of the passersby were sympathetic to our act of reparation and were disgusted to learn that a crucifix in a jar of urine was on display in the art gallery and that it was even being called a work of art. There were a few exceptions. A few people agreed with the display, but these people were in the minority, by far.
May the Blessed Virgin Mary hear our prayers and listen to our acts of reparation and intercede with Her Divine Son, Our Lord, to bring an end to the terrible wave of blasphemies that afflicts America. And give Americans the courage to fight and overcome this sin, always peacefully, prayerfully and legally, but with all the vehemence of soul that is needed to reverse such a tragic situation.
May God have mercy on us!
