Last Sunday 77 of us gathered in the front of Southsea Castle to pray the rosary. We joined efforts with many thousands of people all around England, Wales and Scotland to pray for our countries, praying for an increase of faith in this land. The map opposite pinpoints the locations where people gathered. It’s amazing to think of our countries surrounded by the prayer of the Rosary. What a tremendous act of faith Thank you to each and every one of you who braved the cold and the wind (thankfully not the rain!) to pray…. The Lord won’t let us down!
Our Bishop has written:
I am happy to support your initiative. Thank you for this important witness to the Truth of faith in Christ and to the power of prayer which by God’s grace will surely bring much goodness.Our culture is facing so many challenges at this moment, not least to the sound values that underpin our family and social life. May Mary’s prayers win our land back to the Lord.
May God bless this work and bring it to a good outcome. In Corde Iesu + Philip
The ‘Rosary on the Coast’ will mark 50 years since the Abortion Act came into effect
After similar events in Poland and Ireland, Catholics plan to pray the rosary around the coast on Great Britain in April this year.
The event, which is scheduled for Sunday, April 29, will mark 50 years since the Abortion Act coming into effect.
Organisers say the mass-rosary prayer will help combat the “present threats to faith, the dignity of the human person and to peace”, and encourage a “re-flourishing of our Faith”.
