Reviving an old prayer request


Someone I know started a prayer movement a few years ago, mainly via this email:

Imagine what might happen if every Catholic in America would pray a Rosary on the same day! We have an example from October of 1573, when Europe was saved from the invasion of the mighty Turkish fleet. Europe was saved by the praying of the Rosary by all Christians. So… on Good Friday, let’s all pray a Rosary for the intention of ending abortion. If possible, please pray your Rosary between noon and 3:00 p.m. If you have e-mail, please e-mail this message to every Catholic on your address list, and ask them to pass it along to every Catholic on their lists. If you don’t have e-mail, please ask every Catholic you know to join in this effort. Let’s unite in praying one of the most powerful prayers—on one of the holiest days—for this increasingly urgent intention. Thank you! May God bless you!

I thought it was worth reviving, and this was a good place to do it. Of course, this will probably go hand-in-hand with prayer for Terri Schiavo, another victim of the culture of death.

If you want a handy link for the text, I have it posted on my blog here.

Thanks to all.


what a lovely idea. I pray the Rosary every morning on my way to work. I will add one on Good Friday.
