On Saturday, March 18th, over 3,109 groups across America held public square rosary rallies in honor of St. Joseph and in defense of traditional marriage.

To hold a traditional marriage rally requires the courage to oppose the dominant culture of moral laxity.  Those who hold rallies learn that the majority of Americans support traditional marriage, despite the discouraging remarks from some who say that the cultural war is lost, and that we should move away from the harder issue and engage on the soft issues.  

The fact is, numerous people honked as they drove by in support of these rallies, even in locations where such support is unexpected.



Of course, not everyone supports God’s marriage. Some shout in opposition, use obscene hand gestures, or give the thumbs down. They are in the minority; by far. Promoters of pseudo marriage are angry to see people with the courage to publicly defy their anti-marriage agenda and proclaim that, “God’s Marriage = One Man and One Woman.”

The general public is happy to see rallies where the defense of traditional marriage is publicly proclaimed. This gives hope to so many and gives them the courage to be more vocal in their support of traditional marriage.

One might ask why St. Joseph is the patron of the traditional marriage rallies? St. Joseph is the recognized defender of traditional marriage. St. Joseph was truly the spouse of Our Lady. In fact he is called, “spouse of the Mother of God.” He is also called, “foster father of the Son of God” and, “head of the Holy Family.” St. Joseph is, “the glory of home life” and, “the pillar of families.” St. Joseph is the ultimate defender of traditional marriage and the traditional family in every way. No one defends traditional marriage between one man and one woman more than St. Joseph.

St. Joseph is also called the, “terror of demons.” St. Joseph is a terror to anyone who attacks the sacred institution of marriage which was created by God.



Traditional Marriage Rally Captains know that we are involved in a spiritual war over marriage. They understand it takes courage to defend marriage. 

May Our Lord Jesus Christ, Our Lady, and glorious St. Joseph abundantly bless those who defended the sacred institution of marriage in the public square on Saturday, March 18th and give them courage to continue.

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.

At Anna’s mother’s funeral a man came up to her and after offering his deepest sympathy, took the grieving daughter aside, “I must tell you a story about your good mother and something she did for me…”

He proceeded to recount how, many years before he was involved in an extra-marital affair. One day, when dining with the woman in a restaurant, Anna’s parents had come in and pretended they had not seen them.

But next day he picked up the phone to hear Anna’s mother inviting him over for a piece of pie.

“You know how good your mother’s pie was…But there was also a tone of urgent authority in her voice, so I went.”

After enjoying his piece of pie, Anna’s mother revealed that she had, indeed, seen him and his girl-friend the night before.

“Though I vehemently denied it, your mother would not relent...She proceeded to remind me of the time when I was out of work and she had cooked for my family day in and day out.”

“Now, I want payback,” she demanded.

“I reached for my wallet, but she said,”

“Not that way.”

Handing him a Rosary she asked him to go to Mass for a week. She instructed him to say the Hail Mary and Our Father assigned to each bead while thinking of something good about his wife, his children and their family life.

“If at the end of this week you still think this woman is better for you, just mail me back the Rosary, and I will never say a word about this again.”

At this point, the man telling the story reached into his pocket. Pulling out a worn Rosary, he said,

“This is the Rosary your mother gave me all those years ago. My wife and I have said it together every day since.”
