Let's make the devil mad! Rosary for Saddam Hussein


#1

I’m going to pray a rosary for Saddam Hussein’s conversion. Wouldn’t that make the bad guy mad to lose that big fish?

Anybody want to join me?


#2

Count me in :slight_smile: I’ve actually been praying for his salvation for a while, but I haven’t given him his own Rosary yet!


#3

I’m praying a decade for him.


#4

You can pray a Rosary for something other than the Mysteries??


#5

Kind of.
What they mean is their “intentions”.

They will still meditate on the mysteries but they will make a particular petition of request to God, Jesus, Mary, etc. for Saddam’s conversion.


#6

Oh, okay. I’ve heard of “intentions,” but didn’t know what it meant. So can your petition or intention be for anything? And where in the rosary is the petition made?


#7

It’s usually done before you start - before you start the Rosary if you intend the whole Rosary for a single intention, or before each decade if each decade is for a different one.

As for me, I’ll say a Rosary and top it with a Divine Mercy Chaplet as well :gopray2:


#8

Okay, thank you!!

Leonie - sorry for interrupting your thread!! I’m game!!

#10

#11

:thumbsup:

Lord may you show yourself and give true faith to Saddam Hussein. May he recognize Jesus Christ as the Son of God, who suffered, died, was buried, and rose again for the forgiveness of our sins. Please Lord, break his heart of stone so that he make seek humbly your forgiveness and be granted eternal life with you and all the saints. Have mercy on all of us Lord. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord, in whom all our intercessions are acceptable; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

:gopray:


#13

You know, I thought something has been happening here, because if you hear what he is saying about reconciliation and not hating, it’s very unusual…


#14

O blood and and Water which gushed forth from the heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!!!


#15

#18
