The goals of this crusade are as follows:
- To mount a unified effort in building a global rosary
chain on the 13th of each month in honor of our Blessed
Mother's requests to pray the rosary for peace.
- To build awareness of the power given to mankind through
the use of the rosary.
- To proliferate the use of this powerful weapon against
In 1917, Jesus sent His Mother to Fatima, Portugal on the
13th day of consecutive months with pleas and warnings of
what might happen if man did not turn back to God. These events
culminated on October 13th with one of the greatest documented
miracles of modern times that was witnessed by literally tens
of thousands of people. Our Blessed Mother's message was quite
simple. Put Jesus back at the center of our lives. Ask for
God's mercy. Make sacrifices and reparations for the ways
man has offended God. And pray the rosary for peace!
"I am the Lady of the Rosary, I have come to warn
the faithful to amend their lives and ask for pardon for
their sins. They must not offend Our Lord any more, for
He is already too grievously offended by the sins of men.
People must say the rosary. Let them continue saying it
--Our Blessed Mother to Lucia at Fatima
October 13, 1917
Most importantly, our Blessed Mother brought us a message
of HOPE! If we listen, and do these things, our merciful God
stands ready to embrace us. Great sufferings and disasters,
both manmade and natural can be averted!
"The rosary is my weapon." "Our Lady has
never refused me a grace through the recitation of the rosary."
"Love the Blessed Mother and make her loved. Always
recite the rosary."
--St. (Padre) Pio of Pietrelcina
Sadly, as the Fatima messages went largely unheeded, many
of the things that our Blessed Mother warned of, including
WWII, the rise of Russia, and the spread of communism came
to pass. In fact, quite arguably, this century will go down
as one of the bloodiest and war filled in the history of mankind.
With the lack of peace in this new millennium, our Blessed
Mother's requests seem more urgent and more relevant than
ever, so please join in this worldwide effort of prayer in
response to our Blessed Mother's urgent pleadings.
