What's Important? - 2024-02-18

February 25, 2024

The Rosary reminds people both that God exists and that prayer is important. So thank you again for your prayers for the Boise Catholic street evangelization effort. Two evangelists were available.

Another gymnastics meet was going on in the sports arena, although this time it didn’t end before our session did. One family stopped for a Rosary and asked for prayer for the little girl who would be competing. We prayed that she would do her best and that God would get the glory!

A family of three stopped so the mom could get a Rosary. When asked if she were familiar with the devotion, she said, “Yes! I’m a Catholic middle-school principal [from out of state].” May God guide her and bless her efforts! She chose a Rosary for herself, and also accepted a copy of our “Rosary promises” bookmark to share with her staff.

The economically challenged older man, who usually waves at us as he slowly makes his way past, actually came close to the table this time to visit with both of us. He commented that we were “always smiling, every week”. He also almost chose a Rosary this time, but backed away at the last minute. So close! May God continue to draw him to Himself.

No sign of “Stephen” (FKA “Justin”) again this week. Please continue to pray for him that he accepts the salvation Christ offers him. He can’t hide from God.

“Uwe” [former “angry atheist” now turned “deist”] paused to comment on the weather, as usual, though we hadn’t seen him for a couple of months. May God continue to draw him closer to Himself.

A man named “Spencer”, who sometimes attends a nationalized non-Catholic Christian church and who picked up a Rosary from us some weeks ago, passed by with a woman on his arm. He smiled and reminded us that he already had a Rosary. As they came back by later, we asked the woman if she wanted a Rosary, too. She said she didn’t because she was a Christian. We replied that the Rosary was all about Christ, but they walked on without stopping. Pray for open ears and hearts for all who have mistaken ideas about the Catholic Church.

One of the evangelists had the impression that most of those who did stop for a Rosary this time said they were already Catholic. Lord, grant them perseverance in the Faith!

Altogether, we gave away 15-20 Rosaries and its pamphlet on how to pray it, plus a Rosary Promises bookmark

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.


God blesses everyone who accepts a Rosary and the exhortation to pray it. 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!
