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.

February 23

 

Prayer is the conversation
of a child with its Father; of a subject with his King;
of a servant with his Lord; of a friend with the Friend
to whom he confides
all his troubles and difficulties.

St. Polycarp

Polycarp, a holy man and bishop of Smyrna, was part of the group of early bishops. When heresy arose in Asia, violence toward Catholics arose with it, and Polycarp was persuaded by his friends to go into hiding.

Eventually Polycarp was found and arrested. When his persecutors arrived at his hideout, he went to them and served them a meal, asking for a short time to pray before being taken away. Polycarp was sent to trial, where his captors tempted him with freedom and tried to convince him to denounced Our Lord. “Fourscore and six years I have served Him and He hath done me no wrong,” he said, “how then can I blaspheme my King and my Savior?”

Soon after this, in the year 155, Polycarp was burnt at the stake – though there was no odor of burning flesh: instead a smell of incense was in the air. When the fire seemed to do him no harm, a spear was thrust into his side, killing him. A dove flew out of the wound, and Polycarp’s blood quenched the fire, causing part of his body to remain intact. However, his remains were later burned to ash because the heretics feared other Catholics would revere the body as a relic.

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.
