Rosary prayer initiative for unborn draws 29,000 pledges


A Catholic group leading a multi-national prayer effort to organize one million rosaries for unborn babies has reached 29,000 international pledges and will start on Friday, May 7.

The May 7-9 prayer event, “One Million Rosaries for Unborn Babies,” is being coordinated by the Saint Michael the Archangel Organization.

“I am very thankful for each person who has made the commitment to participate,” said Patrick Benedict, president of the organization.

“And, on behalf of the unborn babies who are, or will be, in danger of being killed, I sincerely and greatly plead to pro-lifers throughout the world,” he added. “Pick up your Rosary May 7th, 8th, or 9th and pray it at least once for the following intention: For an end to the surgical and non-surgical killing of unborn human persons.”

Saint Michael the Archangel Organization reported on Friday that participants have signed up to pray rosaries from around the globe. Individuals from Italy, South Africa, Malta, Switzerland, Mexico and various states throughout the U.S. have pledged rosaries on behalf of the unborn throughout the next three days.

“I also want to say I am very grateful for each person who has done so much good by getting the word out,” continued Benedict. “Of course, it is still not too late to let other people know about this May 7th - 9th Rosary, and I sincerely encourage people to help in this way.”
