No longer able to safely display the Rosaries - 2020-03-22
April 12, 2020
No longer able to safely display the Rosaries, we decided to show up and “just” pray the Rosary out loud. Our Lady’s mantle provided a solid blue sky over the center of the business park while we did so. Two evangelists were available.
“John”, the parking garage attendant, came by twice. There were, he said, a total of 20 cars parked in the 7 parking garages that he maintains. So he had some time on his hands. He told us how 12-step groups were managing, especially with so many churches (their usual meeting places) closed. He joined us in two bishops’ prayers for an end to the spread of the disease, for victims, for healthcare workers, and for wisdom in government leaders. He took a copy of that prayer sheet and another copy of the Rosary pamphlet with him. He said he hadn’t learned to pray the Rosary yet, but hurried off before we could teach him.
Two people saluted us as they passed by.
A woman thanked us for praying the Rosary. Evangelist Chuck invited her to join us but she was running late for an appointment.
A man said how blessed he felt to have had the opportunity to worship online. When evangelist Lucy invited him to pray a decade of the Rosary with us, he said he couldn’t because he was on his way to something.
A little boy (about 4-5 years old), on a bike and watched from a distance by his grandparents, sat and stared at us as we prayed. He rode away when evangelist Chuck said hi.
We prayed all 20 decades of the Rosary, and gave away one Rosary pamphlet and a copy of the bishops’ prayers.
Our state governor has issued a Stay-at-Home order, so we plan to pray the Rosary again today, at the same time but from our separate homes. Please pray for us and/or with us? Please ask that God brings all people to Himself and salvation.
The Rosary is a powerful weapon against evil. So thank you again for your prayers and other support of this apostolate. In turn, may God protect and greatly bless you and all those you love!
