Over the past several months, a grassroots effort worked diligently to call the British Isles to pray the rosary together on Sunday, April 29. As their website reads …
Recently the faithful of Poland and Ireland have responded to what they sense as a movement of the Holy Spirit to gather around the coasts of their nations and pray to Jesus, the Divine Mercy, for a renewal of faith and respect for human life through the powerful intercession of Our Lady of the Rosary. Having witnessed this, a number of the lay faithful in the British Isles – England, Scotland, Wales and their isles – have felt the same inspiration and urge to respond.
They are hoping for us to have our own national Rosary on the Coast for Faith, Life and Peace in the British Isles and are calling their brothers and sisters to such a day of Prayer and Pilgrimage on Sunday 29 April 2018 at 3pm, fifth Sunday of Easter.
There is no question that this inspired call for prayer is by the providence of God as it “happens” to fall in the same week the whole world is watching the outrageous treatment of little Alfie Evans, a child being held hostage by extreme secular progressive judges, against the wishes of the parents … and the entire world!
As Bishop John Keenan of Scotland states,
“Our world is engaged in a fraught struggle over the meaning of the human person. Aggressively secular anthropologies insist that nothing is really true or given in human nature, and the only lasting good for each human person comes about when they can choose everything about their identity from its very source. It brings a radically new meaning to the idea of pro-choice because it seeks to lay hold on the very prerogatives of Creation itself. Against this our Christian anthropology battles on proposing that God, in His loving plan of Creation, has already given us a nature that is best for us, so that our meaning and happiness are integrally linked to discovering, rather than inventing, the truth of who we are, and so entering its path to real dignity, freedom and peace. Since this task is now, in our times, an adventure of evangelisation we need God’s supernatural assistance in grace and mercy, which the laity are beginning to cry out for in initiatives like the Rosary on the Coast, asking the Woman who was content to be the handmaid of God’s plan to be their intercessor and guide.” Bishop John Keenan
PLEASE, EVERYONE … embrace this providential call to join with the British Isles in this, now, worldwide “Day of Spiritual Warfare” as we, collectively, take up arms (The Rosary!) and stand against the forces of evil looking to destroy faith, the dignity of life, and peace. We call upon Our Blessed Lady to crush the head of the serpent!
Prayer Time: Sunday 29 April 2018 at 3pm, which is 7am PST, 8am MST, 9am CST, 10am EST. If you cannot hit that time exactly, pray as near as possible to that time.
