Worldwide Rosary for the Unborn Oct. 18 

Please participate and pass it on: Saint Michael the Archangel Organization is coordinating a Worldwide Rosary for Unborn Babies on 18 October (Saturday).

The idea is that everyone, according to their time zones, prays the Rosary sometime between 9-10 a.m. with the intention, "For an end to the surgical and non-surgical killing of unborn babies." Because participants will be praying the Rosary according to the particular time zones they're in, the hope is that the earth will be circled with multiple waves of Rosaries within a 24-hour time period.

For those of us in the U.S., this prayer is especially needed; as the liberal LA Times puts it, "Every four years, defenders of abortion rights proclaim that the fate of Roe vs. Wade hangs on the outcome of the presidential election. This year, they may be right." See also's article on the subject.

H/T to Fr. Tim Finigan.

It is not just the US: Womb a danger area: Hart. The Victorian Parliament is considering legalizing abortion. Yet, as the article states:
"The Bill is unprecedented in the western world, in imposing laws that would force doctors to act in violation of their conscientious beliefs by actively assisting patients to obtain an abortion."

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
