Saturday, October 15 at 4:00 p.m. ~ Around statue of the Blessed Mother Mary
Please attend and then dedicate yourself to saying the Rosary every day for Peace.
As you know, October is the month of the Rosary. How did that come to be? Well in the year 1571, Christian forces defeated the enemy in Lapanto Greece more by praying the rosary than by the actual battle itself. Miraculous things happened for them to win. The Pope declared October the month of the most Holy Rosary.
Our God has sent our Blessed Mother to earth many times: at least 8 different places in the last 200 years alone. Each time she tells us, "Pray, pray especially the rosary, do penance, and repent. If you do these things, God will heal our lands and fill us with peace."
15 years ago, America Needs Fatima was formed and they started Rosary Rallys on an October 13, the day Our Mothers last appearance at Fatima Portigul. On that day in 1917, Mary has been appearing for 5 months to 3 children asking for prayer, promising: "If my requests are heard, Russia will be converted and there will be peace." Wanting everyone to believe, she promised a miracle on her last apparition. And so it happened. It had been raining on October 13, but the rain suddenly stopped, the sun broke through and started dancing in the sky with brilliant rays of colors streaming forth. Then it began to descent to the earth and the 70,000 people there were frightened, thinking it would hit the earth, but instead it began spinning and rose back up in the skies. Instead of staying wet, the people were instantly dry. Although only the 3 children could see Mary, all could feel her presence and knew when she had left them.
The world today has become a world contrary to God's ways. America Needs Fatima hopes if we heed Mary's Fatima message and pray more, especially pray the Rosary, people will turn to God and His ways and our country can be healed.
