October 2019 – The Month of the Rosary
“As long as priests followed Saint Dominic’s example and preached devotion to the Holy Rosary, piety and fervor thrived throughout the Christian world and in those
religious orders which were devoted to the Rosary.” St. Louis De Montfort
In 2019, in the Secularist State of Vermont, the legislature passed Proposal 5 and began a movement to amend the Vermont Constitution to provide the right to abort pre-born children without any exceptions whatsoever up until birth. Let us pray the Rosary through the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe to defeat abortion without exceptions!
In 1531, when Our Lady left her miraculous image on St. Juan Diego’s tilma, the Aztecs still practiced human sacrifice. In the era of the Aztec Culture of Death, the Gospel of Jesus Christ penetrated their hearts through the image and message of Our Lady of Guadalupe that brought the conversions of millions and an end to the human sacrifices. She can do the same today in our Culture of Death with our help of praying the Rosary.
In 1214, St. Dominic prayed for wisdom to bring conversions to the Albigensian heretics. They believed that human life and procreation was evil and that the highest good was to commit suicide. Our Lady appeared to St. Dominic and said, “I want you to know that, in this kind of warfare, the principal weapon has always been the Angelic Psalter, which is the foundation-stone of the New Testament. Therefore, if you want to reach these hardened souls and win them over to God, preach my Psalter.” Our Lady called her Rosary “My Angelic Psalter” because the Angel Gabriel announced the first part of the Hail Mary to her and because the Rosary then consisted of 150 Hail Mary’s in three mysteries and there are also 150 psalms (the Psalter).
In both of those critical times, Our Lady won over the people to Christ and to a Culture of Life through prayer. It is our hope that through her intercession and the Rosary, Our Lady of Guadalupe will defeat Vermont’s Proposal 5 and repeat her historic role to bring millions of conversions and the end of human sacrifice by legalized abortion, euthanasia, and suicide in our own Culture of Death and lead us into a Culture of Life and Civilization of Love.
In 1992, a young girl became pregnant in Ireland and threatened to commit suicide unless she were allowed to have an abortion in Ireland which prohibited abortion. Sinéad O’Connor, an Irish rock singer, took to the streets with a few hundred supporters and proclaimed, “We made the law and we can change it.”
This made world-wide news and providentially I saw it on television. I communicated with one of my pro-life priest friends in Ireland and told him that if he could guarantee ten thousand Rosary Processors in Dublin in reparation for the few hundred who took to the streets with Sinéad O’Connor, that I would come with the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe to lead it.
I was invited and in May of 1992, Father Michael O’Carroll, world-renowned Mariologist, the Missionary Image and myself led a Rosary Procession in Dublin of thousands of the faithful. This was the largest Rosary Procession in Ireland since the Eucharistic Congress of 1932. We prayed the Rosary that Ireland would be kept abortion-free.
As the months passed, the movement for abortion rights raged like a forest fire across Ireland fueled by the Secularist media and government. Finally, the government proposed to the Irish people an amendment to their Constitution, which prohibited abortion, to legalize it. A referendum vote was scheduled. Once again, Our Lady had a special mission.
We were called to come to Ireland again in November of 1992. This time we made many Visitations to many churches to pray and fast against legalized abortion in Ireland. For ten days we called upon Our Lady of Guadalupe and the Irish martyrs to intercede to save Ireland from the abortion threat and the Secularist enemy within which was far greater than their British enemy in the past.
Our Irish missionary journey ended at Knock Shrine. Six thousand of the faithful filled the Shrine on a beautiful Spring-like day. It was very unusual to have such fine weather so late in the Fall. It was so nice that we had our closing Rosary Procession outside on the Shrine grounds.
Father Michael O’Carroll preached to the congregation followed by a talk by myself. I exhorted the Irish people to be true to the faith in imitation of the Irish martyrs who were beatified by St. John Paul II and to follow his teaching that no one may vote to legalize abortion under any circumstances. I said, “As the Irish martyrs died for their faith, let us live ours!”
Before the Missionary Image arrived in Ireland, the polls said that 70% of the Irish people favored legalized abortion. After the Visitation, the polls changed to 70% against legalized abortion and soon thereafter the proposed Constitutional amendment to legalize abortion was defeated by the Irish people. This victory was attributed to Our Lady of Guadalupe by many of the Irish faithful.
However, the Secular Revolution continued in Ireland and in 2015 the Irish voted by a huge majority to legalize same-sex false marriage. They became the first country in the world to do so by a vote of the people themselves, and not by their representatives or courts.
Ireland’s Secular Revolution culminated three years later in 2018 with an overwhelming vote not by their representatives or courts, but again by the Irish people themselves, to legalize abortion by repealing the eighth amendment to the Irish Constitution that had prohibited it. The sins of the Secularists had prevailed over Ireland’s Culture of Life in only 26 years.
During the 40-year period before 2019, with a world average of over 50 million deaths by abortion annually, two billion unborn children were killed by abortion. Only one century before, that was the same total of the whole world’s population!
St. Paul tells us, “For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:10). Some demons “can come out only by prayer and fasting.” (Mark 9:29).
St. John Paul II wrote in his Gospel of Life, “A great prayer for life is urgently needed, a prayer which will rise up throughout the world. Jesus Himself has shown us by His own example that prayer and fasting are the first and most effective weapons against the forces of evil (see Mark 9:29). Let us therefore discover anew the humility and the courage to pray and fast so that power from on high will break down the walls of lies and deceit.”
We Really Need Your Help!
We receive reports from Guardians telling us how veneration of the Image and the hours of prayer and the Rosary before the Missionary Image have resulted in conversions, miracles, life and healings.

When Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared to St. Juan Diego, she sent him on a great mission. At the same time, all she asked of him was, “Do the best that you can!” That is what she asks each one of us.
Will you once again do your best to help us do our best for Our Lady of Guadalupe? Please help us. Every gift, no matter the size, is needed and appreciated. We know for certain that Our Lady will be happy for your sacrifice.
Please do the best you can and remember that our supporters are remembered in our daily Perpetual Novena and Rosaries to Our Lady of Guadalupe, our weekly Holy Hour before the Blessed Sacrament and our special monthly Masses.

Now is the time to have confidence in the prayer of the Holy Rosary.
