The March for Marriage this year took place on April 25th and was the largest to date. The March is promoted by the National Organization for Marriage and co-sponsored by several other conservative organizations.

The 2015 March sent a powerful message to the Supreme Court to uphold the true definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman.  This is more crucial now than ever, as the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments for cases involving the states' marriage amendments of Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee on April 28th. A decision is expected in June.  

A growing number of states allow homosexual unions due to judicial decisions.  These decisions fly in the face of millions of voters in more than half of the states.  Many Christians are left on their own, with little direction, to face such a destructive attack against Christian Civilization in America.

Homosexual unions are against both the Divine and Natural Law. They go against the way God created us, and it is a serious sin which places those who practice it in great spiritual peril.

Homosexual activists repeatedly speak of love. They argue that those who oppose them are hateful people. In reality, most opponents of homosexuality think quite differently. We oppose the sin, and we fight it because sin turns a person into an enemy of God. Sin places a person at enormous risk of losing eternal happiness with God.  It is so sad that same-sex proponents seek earthly pleasure of sin with little regard for the eternal reward of virtue.

In the difficult age we live in, the March for Marriage was a sight to behold. In the midst of the avalanche of the media push for same-sex unions and with religious persecution on the rise in America, thousands of courageous souls gathered in our Nation's capital. On Saturday, they marched to the Supreme Court with a clear message: "Marriage as designed by God our Creator, is a union between a Man and a Woman. You have no right under God to redefine marriage."

American TFP and America Needs Fatima volunteers joined the March in large numbers. Our standards, flags and banners could be seen throughout the March. A large eye-catching banner displayed the names of 12,251 people which were collected by America Needs Fatima to represent those who could not be physically present. Our musical band set a special tone to the event by playing martial and religious hymns from the beginning of the March all the way to the Supreme Court.

As the marchers approached the Supreme Court with their banners, music and slogans, they encountered a small group of approximately 50 homosexual advocates. From an outside observer's perspective, it looked as if the small group of counter-protesters were engulfed by a tsunami of pro-marriage marchers.

We offer our readers an array of pictures (below) and we thank all those who made this event possible.

Whatever the outcome of the Supreme Court’s decision in June, history witnessed a magnificent act of fidelity to God and His Divine and Natural Law. We pray that the 2015 March for Marriage may rise up to Heaven as a prayer. May God, merciful and just, never abandon our Nation despite our many sins.

 

“Out of the depths I call to you, O Lord; Lord, hear my cry! May your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy. If you, Lord keep account of sins, Lord, who can stand?” Psalm:130

August 21

 How I tremble to think that souls can be punished for all eternity on account of the negligence of their pastor, that innocent people can be led from the path of truth because the words of the Inspired Text were never preached to them, and that the spirit of the world, and of our time especially, should pour into ill-instructed minds for want of a firm hand to check its tide. I have a sacred duty to defend the truth openly, for God will ask me to render an account for all those souls who have strayed into the ways of perdition.

Pope St. Pius X

Giuseppe Melchiore Sarto was born at Riese in the diocese of Treviso in 1835 to Giovanni Battista and Margherita Sanson Sarto. His childhood was one of poverty, being the son of the village postman. Though poor, his parents valued education, and Giuseppe walked six kilometers to school every day.

The excellence he demonstrated in all of his studies was only outdone by the sterling quality of his moral character, which evinced admiring accolades from his superiors at the seminary of Padua. Ordained at the age of twenty-three in 1858, Fr. Sarto spent nine years as curate in Tombolo and then nine as pastor in Salzano, striving to be “all to all” and truly living his priesthood to the fullest. In 1875, he was named a Canon of the Cathedral of Treviso and Chancellor of the diocese. Nine years later, he was consecrated as the Bishop of Mantua. Raised to the Cardinalate on June 12, 1893, he was made Patriarch of Venice three days later.

Upon the death of Pope Leo XIII in 1903, Cardinal Rampolla del Tindaro was posed to succeed him. However, against to the protests of the conclave, Emperor Francis Joseph of Austria, making use of an age-old privilege of the Holy Roman Emperors, used his power of veto against the Cardinal, and Cardinal Sarto was elected instead. Taking the name of Pius, the new pope immediately put an end to the rights of any civil authority to interfere with a papal election.

The name of Pope Pius X is associated with the battle against the errors of Modernism attacking the Church. With the laser-like quality of a saint, the new Pope penetrated the wiles of the new “ism” to its very essence. The whole tendency of Modernism is anti-dogmatic, seeking to tailor dogma to the culture of the age through ambiguity and dilution of divinely revealed doctrine. A 1907 decree of the Holy Office condemned certain writers and propositions. This decree was followed by the encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis, defining the dangerous tendencies and errors of the new heresy which Pius X defined as “the synthesis of all heresies”. Strong disciplinary measures followed, one of them being the requirement for all bishops, priests, and teachers to take the “Oath against Modernism,” an oath of fidelity to the perennial teachings and doctrines of the Catholic Church.

In this first encyclical letter Pope Pius X announced his ideal to “renew all things in Christ.” In the light of this ideal, he greatly promoted the Holy Eucharist, formally recommending daily Communion when possible, and reducing the age of first communicants from adolescence to the age of reason. He also facilitated the reception of Holy Communion by the sick, and urged daily reading of the Holy Scriptures.

In 1903 the Holy Father issued an instruction on sacred music which struck at current abuses. He was also responsible for a thorough reorganization of the tribunals, offices and congregations of the Holy See.

The eleventh anniversary of his election was met with the beginning of World War I. It is said the outbreak of the war killed him: he became ill and died in 1914. He was canonized in 1954 by his successor, Pope Pius XII.

One Good Turn Deserves Another

There was once a priest who had a special devotion to the sorrows of Mary. He would often remain alone in the chapel to commiserate the sorrows of his Lady.

So intently did he meditate on the sorrows endured by Mary Most Holy that, moved by compassion, he was accustomed to wipe the face of a statue of the sorrowful Virgin with a little cloth, as though real tears flowed there.

Now this good priest became quite ill. When he was given up by his physicians, and was going to breathe his last, he saw a beautiful Lady by his side. She consoled him with her words, and with a handkerchief gently wiped the sweat from his brow.

With this, the priest was miraculously cured.

When he found himself well, he said: "But, my Lady, who are you who practice such charity towards me?" "I am she," answered Mary, "whose tears you have so often dried,” and she disappeared.
