"To turn the evil in America, a tithe of Rosaries should be offered to God.
If 10% of Catholics in the United States would pledge to join the Rosary Crusade,
satanic evil would be crushed in our nation." --Fr. Albert Shamon
Prayer and Fasting are the Spiritual Weapons
to Defeat Evil
We must pray and fast if there is to be hope for the future. Our Blessed Mother has said, ” PRAYER possesses a potent force and starts a chain reaction for good that is far more powerful than any ATOMIC REACTION.”
We have seen amazing signs of the fulfillment of our Blessed Mother’s promises about the power of prayer – especially the Rosary. There have been many battles won in history through the Power of The Rosary.
May 13, 1955 — After 700,000 people agreed to pray the Rosary in Austria, the Soviets mysteriously departed the country on the anniversary date of Fatima-May 13th, 1955.
October 13, 1960 — After Pope John XXIII called for prayer, a million pilgrims in Fatima held an all night prayer vigil before the Blessed Sacrament. The next day, October 13, 1960, an accident destroyed a new Soviet missile, killing many top scientists and setting back the Soviet nuclear arms program by at least 20 years.
May 13, 1984 — After another major Rosary Crusade, a massive explosion on May 13, 1984, eliminated two-thirds of the missiles of the Soviet Union’s powerful Northern Fleet.
