This report comes to us from team leader Lucy with our team in Boise, ID:

The fact of the Resurrection is still astonishing. Lots of people wished us “Happy Easter” today. Sometimes, we found the source of the greeting surprising. May God heal our culture!

In “our business park”, two large group meetings were being held. Behind us, was an anti-Catholic “apostolic Christian” group, composed mostly of people from a culture that traditionally had been Catholic. In front of us were the non-Christian sect members who use the sports arena several times a year. Of all the people attending one or the other of these venues, only one woman stopped for a Rosary for her grade-school aged son. May God protect her from peer pressure!

Of one family coming from the “Christian” venue, the mom and children looked interested in receiving a Rosary, but the dad said no. They recognized his authority, and walked on. May God lead him and his whole family back into the truth and the Catholic Church!

Two heavily tattooed teenage girls stopped for a Rosary, somewhat irreverently. I encouraged them to use the devotion to get to know Jesus Christ. I also quickly explained how, if one goes through the meditations respectfully, even if all they had were questions, one often finds peace and protection. That second “p word” hit home, as it often does with those who experiment with alien spiritualities. May God bless them, free them, and lead them to/back to Himself!

A family group of about six people passed by. One of the men called out, “He is risen!” We replied, “He is risen indeed” and “Alleluia”. How wonderful that even separated Christian brothers acknowledge each other on this, the greatest of feast days!

Praised be Jesus Christ! Today the two evangelists gave away about 20 Rosaries and its pamphlet on how to pray it. Please pray for God to send people to this team with hearts prepared to perceive their need for Our Savior Jesus Christ and His Holy Catholic Church, and that much good fruit for His Kingdom comes from their efforts.

Our culture may depict Easter as being about candy and egg-laying rodents, but we serve as a reminder that infinitely greater matters are at stake. So, thank you again for your prayers and other support for this apostolate. In turn, may God protect and greatly bless you and all those you love!
