The need for Our Savior Jesus Christ and His Holy Catholic Church continues. So thank you again for your prayers for the Boise Catholic street evangelization effort.

A father and two children went by, the children looking longingly at the Rosaries. But the father said no, and we affirmed his authority. Lord, plant Your seed of Faith in those children and bring them to You!

A middle-aged woman from a large city on the other side of the continent, came with money in hand. But we told her that we don’t accept donations. She accepted a Rosary anyway, and spoke glowingly of the goodness of her recently deceased, 90-year-old husband, a former seminarian. We worried about her flashing a large bundle of cash. May God have kept her safe and blessed her for her generous intent.

A group of Catholics passed us. At first, they declined our offer of a Rosary, but then one accepted. He told us he prayed the Liturgy of the Hours daily. May God bless him and keep him faithful. The younger woman with him, though looking at us in a friendly manner, didn’t choose a Rosary.

A family with two children stopped so they could pick a Rosary. They came back some minutes later because the children wanted different colors than they had originally chosen. We let them choose another, sanitizing their original choices and putting them back out on the table.

Nobody mentioned the Pope’s latest pastoral decision.

Occasional visitor “Michele”, with stroller and dog, stopped to chat a bit. She still had the Rosary she had gotten from us earlier, but asked prayers for her friend “Michelle” who lives in the same building and is ill with covid.

The homeless woman with the crippled hands said she didn’t need a Rosary today.

A Catholic woman, who moved here from the east coast and now belongs to a local parish, came up and gave a friendly shout, “Yeah, Catholic Church!”

A thin, young adult woman with a small daughter, accepted a Rosary and its pamphlet. She told us she “had Catholics in the family.”

A woman dressed in a festive red outfit, and her daughter, each took a Rosary and its pamphlet.

When e. Lucy showed a 20-something woman the Rosary pamphlet that explains the devotion, our visitor agreed that pictures help her in spiritual contemplation.

An older couple with a young girl (their granddaughter?) accepted Rosaries.

A man, accompanied by his wife and young son, accepted a Rosary and its pamphlet. He said he just wanted to give his son “religious options”, presumably letting his boy make up his own mind. Blessed Mother, please lead that child and his family to Your Son, the only true God.

The weather was heavily overcast, but temperatures were relatively warm. We were spared any breeze until “closing time”. Foot traffic was light, but fairly steady. Altogether, the two evangelists gave away 15-20 Rosaries and its pamphlet, as well as a Divine Mercy prayer card.

Please pray for us again today? Ask God to send people to us 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 of today’s efforts.


Our work continues. 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!
