They were inspired by Poland's rosary at the border. Just imagine if every diocese in the United States organized a rosary crusade around a public school campus in their boundaries! In my own state of Virginia I can imagine the impact of rosary crusades surrounding George Mason in Northern Virginia and James Madison in Harrisonburg and UVA in Charlottesville and VCU in Richmond. What would that do to bring about conversions and shower blessings on this state, the birthplace of our country.
Imagine the graces flowing to those campuses and those communities. And what a power for healing in places like Charlottesville. What a thought!
Think I'll send this article to Bishop Burbidge and ask for a rosary crusade in our diocese. After all, should protestants like Billy Graham outdo us in their public acknowledgement of the Lord of all creation and our Blessed Mother?
If you want to say thank you to Bishop Conley for this public witness, you can send an email to the bishop here. Gratitude is the mother of many virtues. Let's send an army of thank you's to Bishop James Conley and pray that other bishops are inspired to imitate his diocese!
