Join the Rosary Novena to Defeat Radical Islam

A friend sent me the following email urging Catholics around the world to join a rosary novena to defeat radical Islam. It begins tomorrow and continues for 54 days until the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. Please, please join. This is a good way for us to "ransom" those being persecuted by ISIS and other evil Islamic groups. Here's Allyson's email:
Dear All, 
My good friend Anthony Gonzales of St. Joseph's Men Society in San Jose is urging a 4-day worldwide Rosary novena to defeat radical Islam starting tomorrow, Sept. 15, the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows, and ending December 8, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. The first 27 days will be in petition for our Blessed Mother Mary's intercession with her Divine Son, Jesus, for Islam's defeat, and the second 27 days will be in thanksgiving for hearing our prayers and taking them before her Son's glorious throne. 
Please join and spread the word. If you are not Catholic, please pray to Jesus for the defeat of satanic radical Islam. Here's a link with "Novena Prayers" prayers that are beautiful and suitable for praying by Christians of any denomination.
God bless you, 
Anthony has started a Facebook page to promote the novena. Go there for more information. And if you want to help even more, print up the flyer and pass it out at church and to your friends. There's a wealth of information here including prayers to be said during the novena, although if you can only say the rosary and make the intention please do that. In fact, whatever prayers you can say in joining will be appreciated. Jesus and His Blessed Mother can never be outdone in generosity and will reward whatever efforts their children make.

Remember, some devils can only be driven out by prayer and fasting. Make some extra sacrifices to add efficacy to your prayer. It let's Jesus and Mary know how serious you are and how much we all need their help!

This is great, and no doubt it will have its effect, but I am convinced in this case the Church leaders need to acknowledge the need and initiate such a rosary novena/crusade themselves. The bishops and the Pope need to call this forth - I also believe they need to start admitting what is taking place is an Islamic assault upon Christianity. This continual denial that ISIS is not Islam is ridiculous.

You're right, Terry. Wouldn't it be wonderful if the pope and the bishops would lead the way as our shepherds. But if they don't, the laity will.

The priest who witnessed our marriage was an amateur historian and he said historically the laity always call the Church back to fidelity.
