2012 Public Square Rosary Rally

On Saturday, October 13th, I co-coordinated a Public Square Rosary Rally 
in my town to pray for our nation.  
This date is significant.  
It was the 95th anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun in Fatima, Portugal
 where thousands of people converted.

Our Lady's message was simple.
Abandonment of Sin.

Back to the this year's rally:

The weather was terrible.  
It rained and rained.  
It was cold and windy.
About 40 men and women braved the inclement weather and joined us to pray the rosary for the conversion of hearts and reparation of the sins of our nation.  
We were part of a nationwide rosary rally that day at noon.
And I mean nationwide.
There were over 9,000 rallies with prayer warriors out in a public setting.
It was amazing.

Here are a few pictures I managed to take:

About half the people left right after we sang O Sanctissima so this picture only shows about half of the people.  I was incredibly moved how many people showed up 
considering the steady rainfall and wind.
These men and women are committed to honoring Our Lady of Fatima's wishes 
to honor God and her son, and pray for our nation!

    God bless you!!

    1. Hi Gardenia,

      Thank you for your support! I did see the link at Ana's blog but it seemed a general overall one. You must have adapted that one to make soon to be Saint Kateri.

  2. Noreen,

    The umbrellas reminded me of the ones held by the people at the time of the Miracle of the Sun. So your weather was most unfortunate but rather appropriate.

    An inspiring post! Thank you for sharing.

    God bless

    1. I know! Yesterday, I saw a picture from 1017 and the men and women were shielding themselves with umbrellas too!

  3. This looks so similar to our Rosary Rally as we were in the rain last week too. We thought about moving it indoors (we were across the street from our church) but it is supposed to be a PUBLIC rosary, so that is what we did. Our church organizes two a year with America Needs Fatima...a great organization.
