Catholics across the country gathered on March 23rd to participate in Traditional Marriage Rosary Rallies on the Saturday following the Feast of Saint Joseph. The size of over 3,000 rallies varied from 10 people in some towns, to 35 or more in larger cities. It was cold and windy in some cities, while it was calm and sunny in others.

 

 

But at all of the rallies, the general spirit of the attendees was cheerful and upbeat, with lots of holy enthusiasm. Many rallies started with the Angelus at noon, and then proceeded with the Holy Rosary, praying for the conversion of America, the Catholic Church and making an act of reparation for the sins committed against holy matrimony.

 

The responses from the public were overwhelmingly positive with many honks of approval. Here and there, captains reported on some negative responses. But most reports indicate cheerful reactions from passersby, many giving the "thumbs up," including lots of young couples. There were even shouts of enthusiasm and great joy at seeing the “God's marriage = 1 Man + 1 Woman” banners. One could sense a general and pervasive sense of happiness from people at seeing sanity about God's marriage in the public square, which is so rare today.

 

 

Rally Captains mentioned that their rally attendees expressed courage in openly and peacefully facing the Homosexual and Transgender Revolution, denying the insanity and lies it promotes. One rally participant said it in these words: "People at the rally were super enthused...participants and public passing by. I also saw one man who honked, waved and made the sign of the Cross as he drove by. I thought we got a good number of honks from the cars driving by. Rally attendees stayed on and talked for a long time once we finished the rally. One attendee wants to do a Traditional Marriage rosary every week over the bridges and overpasses."

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.

Payback

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.”
