Hello everyone! Here is an article written by my sister about this past weekend on a protest in Belle Plain, Minnesota. The protest consisted of praying so that this town does not proceed with its plan to place a satanic monument in their veterans park. They are actually reconsidering placing the monument up so if you are outraged by this injustice to Our Lord, please call the town city council to express your discontent!
I have to express how impressed I was with how many people came to protest. In particular, there was a group of young men (maybe ages 15-25?) who were kneeling in formation the entire time and they prayed and sang with the group. It was inspiring to see young men taking a stand again! I also want to add that the temperature outside was 90 degrees and the sun was beating down on everyone. Without saying anymore, here is the report my sister has written.
A New Crusade
"The date of July 15th is of great importance to history because of the momentous occurrences which took place. There are two in particular. The first happened in the year 1099 A.D. The first crusaders lead by Godfrey of Bouillon besieged and regained the stolen land of Jerusalem from the Muslims. 918 years later, another battle was fought, not with swords and crossbows, but with rosaries and hymns.
These new crusaders joined together at Belle Plaine, Minnesota, to pray the rosary to protest an affront to God and make reparation for the sin. The praying warriors stormed New Jerusalem with their prayers.
The particular issue which caused such a repercussion was the decision to allow a satanic monument to be erected in the Veterans Park. The statue, which is a cube with pentagrams on each side and an upturned helmet on top, will be the first public monument to satan.
The organization called America Needs Fatima answered God's call to publicly defend His honor and raised the standards for the fight. They called friends and strangers alike to gather an army for God to join them in the battle. About 200 gathered, some local, and some traveling as far as Kansas, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Iowa, and South Dakota.
But the prayer warriors were not without opposition. About nine satanists did appear to make a counter-protest.
The rosary rally began with a procession of a statue of Our Lady of Fatima. Then the rosary was prayed, begging for God's and Our Lady's blessings on America and hymns were sung in honor of Our Lady and God's kingship. Some knelt for the complete hour to offer another sacrifice to Our Lady. The new crusaders, with prayers said and hymns sung, placed their hopes in Our Lady's hands along with their public sacrifice of prayer so that as she promised, Our Queen will Triumph and crush the head of the serpent."
We continue to fight the battle but just remember that the battle is already won! Our Lady said herself, "And finally, My immaculate heart will triumph!"
