People From 18 Nations Register For Rosary Prayer Event For Unborn Babies
MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE (March 1st, 2010) - More than 3,000 Rosaries have already been registered by persons from 18 nations for the May 7th - 9th ONE MILLION ROSARIES FOR UNBORN BABIES prayer event. Each Rosary will be prayed for the following intention: For an end to the surgical and non-surgical killing of unborn human persons. Persons registering are from the following nations: Netherlands, Chile, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, England, Philippines, India, Singapore, South Africa, Nigeria, Lithuania, Ivory Coast, Peru, Latvia, United Arab Emirates, United States and Belgium.
" Throughout the world in the last 50 or so years, an incomprehensible tragedy has happened; namely, the surgical killing of approximately one billion unborn human persons and the non-surgical killing of a multitude of unborn human persons(the number of non-surgical deaths is more difficult to approximate). Throughout the history of mankind, no other group of people has ever gone through such a horror. I am very grateful to see people from various nations support the ONE MILLION ROSARIES FOR UNBORN BABIES prayer event," said Patrick Benedict, President of the Saint Michael the Archangel Organization, the organization coordinating the prayer effort.
"Sitting by and allowing this massacre to continue is not an option. When we say that Christ died for each of us, that includes each unborn human person. In the eyes of God, these babies are precious.
" Yet, an attack of hellish proportions has been waged for many years now against the unborn babies. The ONE MILLION ROSARIES FOR UNBORN BABIES prayer event can be defined as a counter-attack in which participants pray the Rosary for the unborn babies who can not pray for themselves.
" This May 7th - 9th Rosary is a great opportunity for the world to unite in prayer for the protection of unborn babies. Let's be reminded of the words of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Fatima, Portugal in 1917: 'Say the Rosary every day to obtain peace for the world,' " concluded Benedict.
Registration for the May 7th - 9th Rosary is easy and may be done by going to www.SaintMichaelTheArchangelOrganization.org (a person may also send his intentions to P.O. Box 41257; Memphis, Tennessee 38174; U.S.A.). Some people have already registered more than 8 Rosaries for themselves alone. Families, schools, and parishes have also registered Rosaries.
In addition to praying the Rosary, the Saint Michael the Archangel Organization encourages people to tell others about the ONE MILLION ROSARIES FOR UNBORN BABIES prayer event. The Organization's website(see above) has a section about promoting the event and also has a bulletin insert, a bulletin announcement, etc. Information about promoting the prayer effort may also be obtained by sending a stamped, self-addressed envelope to the above-listed mailing address.
A count of the number of Rosaries people have registered is being kept at the website
