One million Rosaries for unborn babies planned in multi-national effort

.- A Catholic group is again leading a multi-national prayer effort to organize one million Rosaries for unborn babies. Participants will pray for an end to the “surgical and non-surgical killing of unborn human persons.”

The 2009 event had participants from more than 35 countries, reported the effort organizer, Patrick Benedict of the Memphis-based Saint Michael the Archangel Organization. More than 60,000 Rosaries were scheduled to be prayed last year.

He said he was grateful for last year’s participation and said he hoped millions of people will commit to pray the Rosary for “the babies who cannot pray the rosary themselves.”

The organization is asking people to pray at least one Hail Mary as part of the effort. Participants should say at least one Rosary on May 7, 8 or 9 for the intention of ending the killing of the unborn. Participants are encouraged to pray more than one Rosary.

The Friday May 7 date is particularly meant for students to pray the rosary at schools, while the Sunday May 9 date will allow people to pray the Rosary before or after Masses.

Participants are asked to register for the event at the organization’s website or by mailing their name and number of Rosaries to be prayed to the group. Parishes, schools, organizations, etc. are welcome to register many Rosaries at the same time, the Saint Michael the Archangel Organization says.

Promotional materials are available at the website, http://www.SaintMichaelTheArchangelOrganization.org
