The Publisher's Rosary Crusade
“Never will anyone who says his Rosary every day be led astray. This is a statement that I would gladly sign with my blood.”
St. Louis de Montfort
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ --
With each new day, I can't help but notice an increasing, and intense division in the Church, our government, and society as whole.
I find myself dismayed as I witness the destructive effects of evil, resulting in a disregard for the sanctity of human life, an assault on the traditional definition of gender and family dynamic, an increase in violence, persecution, divisiveness, confusion, and despair.
As a layperson, and a "canceled Catholic" there is only one thing I can do: PRAY.
Thus, I resolved to offer my daily rosary for the intentions of others: the Holy Father, the clergy, the faithful, those who love me, those who hate me, my family, friends, and strangers. I believe that in this age when hopelessness seems to be the new normal, no matter what may divide us, Our Lady’s powerful intercession can bring about conversion of heart and an increase in peace and understanding.
In the midst of conflict and division, we need Our Lady.
The Blessed Mother delights in coming to the aid of Her children. She calls both the most devout and the most distant to come, embrace her Immaculate Heart, to be enveloped in her motherly love. She wants nothing more than to take our needs before Her Son and His Heavenly Father, imploring on our behalf as only a mother can do.
This humble apostolate has many goals, but perhaps the most important is to make myself available to pray for others. If you would like me to offer a rosary for you and your intentions, there is a link on the bottom of this page to a form you can fill out.
We live in uncertain times. Each one of us should strive, every day, to be a shining example of hope. Moreover, knowing that everybody carries their own cross, we should desire to be like St. Simon of Cyrene and aid others in carrying their burden where we are able. For me, that is through prayer.
St. Louis de Montfort tells us, “The word rosary means “Crown of Roses,” that is to say that every time people say the rosary devoutly, they place a crown of one hundred and fifty-three white roses and sixteen red roses upon the head of Jesus and Mary. Being heavenly flowers, these roses will never fade or lose their exquisite beauty.”
May we all strive to place such crowns on the heads of Our Lord and Our Lady.
