Praise be Jesus Christ, son of Mary! Where Mother Mary comes Jesus comes afterwards.
On paper there was few signed up for today and heavy rain forecast. However, I think our prayer warriors standing behind the mission opened up the skies for us and brought us souls to pray over the area. Groups just seemed to flow in today to pray over different areas, including the family of one of our religious sister, SSVM, from outside Harrisburg, Pennsylvania area with children. The various legion of Mary presidium are the heart of the rosary marching crew. WE NEED MORE LEGIONNAIRES! Standing behind it all is my growing crew of prayer warriors from all over the country. I recruited 5 contemplative monasteries of nuns praying for the mission including two in Philadelphia. I asked former parishioners from my old parishes Our Lady of Peace in Santa Clara, California, Mankato, Minnesota, and Virginia to pray for us, as well as family. Generous souls responded from all over the country. One faithful soul here at St. Veronica’s, Diane Hagey was praying at least 1.5 hours every day for the mission. I know her heart would like to walk with us, but her body will no longer allow it. I too have been trying to do special fasts and sacrificial prayers in support of the mission outside of the hours of the mission itself.
It is pray that grounds everything and Mother Mary whose pray come to Jesus that will conquer.
