Yes, with God all things are possible. The sheer number of rosary rallies held in 2014 year across America was unprecedented in history: 12,629. That means in all fifty states, in over 12,000 public visible locations from coast to coast, groups of faithful gathered to pray the holy rosary in the public square and celebrate the 97th anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima.

Also, 12,629 Red Roses were offered to Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal. It poured, but the rain did not stop our determined volunteers. 

But although the annual rosary rally effort grows year after year, the liberal media prefers not to mention it. Look at it this way. In September, news outlets made a big deal about 100 rallies for minimum wage increase (Los Angeles Times); in July, CBS 8 talked about 170 rallies for immigration reform; in October of 2013, The New York Times wrote all about 150 rallies regarding immigration; and in September of 2011, countless media outlets raved about 100 leftist "occupy" groups.

With so many prayer rallies -- over 12,000 -- the liberal media still managed to pretend they never happened. Regardless, God took notice.  Watch the NYC Rosary Rally video 

After months of intense yet enthusiastic volunteer work by a team of 12,629 dedicated rosary rally captains, the annual event sponsored by the TFP and its America Needs Fatima campaign was held on October 11th, 2014 nationwide at noon.

Saint Dominic explains how the rosary is "a very powerful armor against hell; it will destroy vice, deliver from sin and dispel heresy." Bearing in mind how powerful the rosary is against the forces of darkness, a record-breaking number of Public Square Rosary Rallies covered the nation like a mantle of prayer: Over 12,000 acts of faith and public devotion, over 12,000 reasons for hope and courage blanketed the country.

 

At every turn we see efforts within our twisted and "progressive" culture that attempt to banish God from the public square, uproot moral values and dismantle the family. The sins of procured abortion and same-sex unions, for example, are openly promoted. Which begs the question: How long will God tolerate these offenses against the order He created?

The growth of this movement of massive prayer demonstrates that Americans are turning to God and the Blessed Mother for strength, courage and hope. In fact, the need for conversion, prayer and penance is more pressing today than it was in 1917 when Our Lady appeared to Jacinta, Francisco and Lucia. The holy rosary will help us restore society, the holy rosary will give us the spiritual fortitude to fight the good fight, follow God’s law, and attract His blessings on America.

With renewed hope in God's final victory, let us recall the promise made by the Queen of Heaven herself when at Fatima, she said: "In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph!"

To all the rosary rally captains who put time and talent into this much needed spiritual crusade, please accept our gratitude and appreciation. We know God will reward and bless you.

In times of desolation,
God conceals Himself from us
so that we can discover for ourselves
what we are without Him.

St. Margaret of Cortona

Margaret was born in Laviano, a little town in Tuscany, to a farmer and his wife. When she was only seven, her mother died and her father remarried a hard and difficult woman, who spared no great love for the free-spirited girl.

Margaret ran away with a rich young man. For nine years she lived in sin, and during that time bore him a son. Her immoral relationship caused great scandal, and Margaret strove to convince him of marriage, but to no avail. One day, the man took his dog and went riding. When he did not return, Margaret became anxious. After some time, his dog returned and led her to a forest. There Margaret found the broken body of her lover, dead for some days, and took it as a sign from God to amend her life.

Then Margaret traveled to Cortona where she lived a life of prayer and penance near the Franciscan Friars. She devoted herself to caring for the sick, living off of alms, eating and sleeping little, and eventually took the habit of the third order of St. Francis. She sent her son to school in Arezzo, where he later entered the Franciscan Order.

During the twenty-nine years she lived as a penitent, Margaret often spoke with God. A result of her dedication to the sick is the Confraternity of Our Lady of Mercy, which she founded. She died at age fifty, and was proclaimed a saint immediately. The people of Cortona built a church in her honor, where her remains are housed. She was officially canonized in 1728.

Cause of Our Joy

We are well aware Our Lady is constantly working and spreading her graces as we travel to homes with the statue of Our Lady of Fatima. On a recent visit in south Texas, we were surprised to see Our Lady’s visit to one household as the culmination of a beautiful story of grace, nine months in the making.  

Our hosts had gathered friends and neighbors from their small town on a sunny afternoon to welcome the statue of Our Lady of Fatima. As the program progressed, the lady of the house asked to tell a story about a certain grace she had received.

Two years ago, her daughter had suffered a miscarriage in her first pregnancy, which had a devastating effect on the family. This past year, the same daughter again became pregnant.  However, rather than being a cause for rejoicing, the family was apprehensive due to what had happened previously. Our hostess then explained how she and her husband vowed to take a dozen roses at the beginning of each month of the pregnancy to Our Lady’s shrine at the local parish, asking the Queen of Heaven for a safe delivery.

The florist of the town, upon hearing the story, took great care to make an extra-beautiful bouquet in honor of our Blessed Mother.

For nine months, the couple was faithful in bringing the flowers and asking Our Lady’s powerful help. To their great surprise, the final time coincided with our visit with the statue of Our Lady of Fatima.

Our hostess began to cry tears of joy in telling the story, so honored was she to have such a clear sign of the intercession of the Mother of God. She then told that the doctors all gave reports of a healthy pregnancy, and the child was due any day now. The last bouquet of roses, lovingly arranged by the town’s florist, was placed at the feet of the statue of Our Lady of Fatima in thanksgiving for a healthy pregnancy and their soon to be newborn grandchild.

We later learned that a healthy boy was born two days after the visit. Not only did Our Lady grant new life to a family who was so eager to welcome it, but she also restored the hope and strengthened the faith of this family and all who were gathered to share their joy. This easily brought to mind one of the beautiful titles of Our Lady from the Litany of Loreto: Causa nostrae letitiae, Cause of Our Joy. May Our Lady bring to the fullness of joy all who invoke her with confidence.
