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

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. John Vianney

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.
