Rosaries for the bishops

Some of you all may know this, but Barack Obama recently gave commencement at Notre Dame University. Although this clear denial of Notre Dame’s Catholic identity is saddening, this dark cloud has a silver lining; the thousands of Catholics nationwide who were galvanized to stand up ferociously for the Church and her teachings, and for the sanctity of life. Included among this number were many bishops, archbishops and cardinals and priests.

Therefore I ask you all, in conjunction with a campaign by the Cardinal Newman Society, to offer a “prayer bouquet” for these bishops who were unafraid to stand up for life and the Church. Say Rosaries, chaplets of Divine Mercy, offer days of fasting, whatever you choose. Let the Lord know we appreciate the work his shepherds on Earth did for him and for the lives of the little ones, especially;
