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.

July 19

I shall spare myself neither care nor labor nor vigils
for the salvation of souls.
My hope is in Christ, who strengthens the weakest by His divine help;
I can do all in Him who strengthened me!
His power is infinite, and if I lean on Him it will be mine;
His wisdom is infinite, and if I look to Him for counsel I shall not be deceived;
His goodness is infinite, and if my trust is stayed on Him I shall not be abandoned.
Hope unites me to my God and Him to me.
Although I know I am not sufficient for the burden, my strength is in Him.
For the salvation of others I must bear weariness, face dangers, suffer offenses,
confront storms, fight against evil.
He is my Hope.

Pope St. Pius X

St. Macrina the Younger

Macrina was born in Caesaerea, Capadoccia, her parents being Basil the Elder and Emmelia. Her grandmother was St. Macrina the Elder and her three brothers were eminent figures in the Church: Basil the Great, St. Gregory of Nyssa and Peter of Sebaste.

Macrina’s parents arranged a marriage for her but her fiancé having died before the wedding, the bride turned to religion.

Well known as a holy woman and instructor of young women, she is honored as one of the most prominent nuns in the Eastern Church. Her ascetic way of life had a profound influence on her brothers. She purposely gave up classical education in favor of the study of Scriptures and sacred writings.  Her brother, Gregory of Nyssa wrote a life entitled, Life of Macrina, in which he describes the holiness of her life.

With the help of her younger brother, Peter, she turned her family estate at Pontus into a convent, where she died in 379.

The Rosary and the Possessed Girl

In his book, The Secret of the Rosary, St. Louis de Montfort relates that a Dominican, Father Jean Amat, was once giving a Lenten Mission in the Kingdom of Aragon, Spain, when a young girl, possessed by the devil was brought to him.

Father Amat began the exorcism. After several unsuccessful attempts, the priest had an idea; taking his Rosary, he looped it around the girl’s neck. 

No sooner had he done this, the girl began to squirm and scream and the devil, shouting through her mouth shrieked, “Take if off, take off; these beads are tormenting me!”

At last, moved to pity for the girl, the priest lifted the Rosary beads off her neck.

The next night, while the good Dominican lay in bed, the same devils who possessed the young girl entered his room. Foaming with rage, they tried to seize him, but he had his Rosary clasped in his hand and no efforts from the infernal spirits could wrench the blessed beads from him.

Then, going on the offensive and using the Rosary as a physical weapon, Fr. Amat scourged the demons crying out, “Holy Mary, Our Lady of the Rosary, help me, come to my aid!” at which the demons took flight.

The next day on his way to church, the priest met the poor girl, still possessed. One of the devils within her taunted him, “Well, brother, if you had been without your Rosary, we should have made short work of you…”

With renewed trust and vigor, the priest unlaced his Rosary from his belt, and flinging it around the girl’s neck commanded, “By the sacred names of Jesus and Mary His Holy Mother, and by the power of the holy Rosary, I command you, evil spirits, leave the body of this girl at once.”

The demons were immediately forced to obey him, and the young girl was freed.

“These stories,” concludes St. Louis de Montfort, “show the power of the holy Rosary in overcoming all sorts of temptations from the evil spirits and all sorts of sins because these blessed beads of the Rosary put devils to rout.”
