Rosaries for unborn campaign drawing prayers worldwide

.- A Catholic group leading a multi-national prayer effort has had 3,000 people register from countries all over the world to pray a Rosary for the unborn. The May 7-9 prayer event, “One Million Rosaries for Unborn Babies,” is being coordinated by the Saint Michael the Archangel Organization.

“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,” said Patrick Benedict, President of the Saint Michael the Archangel Organization. “Throughout the history of mankind, no other group of people has ever gone through such a horror.”

“Sitting by and allowing this massacre to continue is not an option,” he added. “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,” Benedict continued, saying that the “prayer event can be seen as a counter-attack in which participants pray the Rosary for the unborn babies who can not pray for themselves.”

The organization reported on Monday that individuals have signed up for the prayer event from the 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.

“This May 7th - 9th Rosary is a great opportunity for the world to unite in prayer for the protection of unborn babies,” Benedict concluded. “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.'”

Saint Michael the Archangel 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 and 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.
