A new Rosary Crusade began on January 1, this year. This one is to be coupled with penance and that makes it a really formidable weapon in our spiritual battle. Please note that all traditional Catholics are invited to participate, whether they attend Society Chapels or not. When Bishop Fellay announced this new Rosary Crusade, he remarked that it is based on the one desired by Archbishop Lefebvre at his priestly jubilee in Paris, in 1979; He quoted Archbishop Lefebvre,
We should have a crusade based on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, on the Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, on that invincible rock, that inexhaustible source of grace which is the Mass…. We must undertake a crusade, a crusade which is based specifically on this idea of sacrifice, in order to recreate Christendom, to re-establish a Christendom such as the Church desires, such as she has always done, with the same principles, the same Sacrifice of the Mass, the same sacraments, the same catechism, the same Sacred Scripture. We must recreate this Christendom! It is to you, my dear brethren, you who are the salt of the earth and the light of the world, you to whom Our Lord Jesus Christ addressed Himself in saying: “Do not waste the fruit of My Blood, do not abandon My Calvary, do not abandon My Sacrifice.” And the Virgin Mary, who stands beneath the Cross, tells you this as well; she, whose heart is pierced, full of sufferings and sorrows, and yet filled with the joy of uniting herself to the Sacrifice of her divine Son, she too says it to you: “Let us be Christians, let us be Catholics!“
Bishop Fellay then urged,
Encouraged by these vibrant words of our founder, all the members of the Society will join with you, dear faithful, in a great crusade for Our Lord and His reign, for Our Lady and the triumph of her Immaculate Heart. When we have a declared enemy, as the Apocalypse puts it, we must respond to his attacks proportionately. God wills it!
We encourage you therefore to adopt a permanent spirit of crusade, although, because of human considerations, we will officially begin this new Rosary crusade on January 1, 2014, and conclude it on the Feast of Pentecost (June 8, 2014) for the purpose of collecting a spiritual bouquet of five million Rosaries in reparation for the outrages committed against the honor of Our Lady, against her Heart as a Virgin and Mother of God.
Goal: 5 million Rosaries
1) To implore from the Immaculate Heart of Mary a special protection for the traditional apostolate;
2) For the return to Tradition within the Church;
3) For the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary by the consecration of Russia.
1) Prayer and penance as asked for at Fatima;
2) Sanctification through the duty of state;
3) Spirit of sacrifice in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
Let’s hope that more traditional Catholics will support this Crusade.Those who bemoan the unfortunate utterances of this most authentic of all post-Vatican II popes should see that only the Immaculate Heart of Mary can relieve us of this chastisement and prevent the further unfolding of God’s wrath on this disobedient hierarchy. My husband and I are putting all our hopes and efforts into this last ditch Crusade. We hope that you, too will put all your efforts into this, for the sake of our Immaculate Mother. Please spread the information to others.
Pray the Rosary and confound the devil!
