MILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS PRAY ROSARY IN POLAND

    Poland’s bishops have urged the nation’s Catholics to join a massive rosary prayer crusade along the country’s 2,000-mile border to pray for the salvation of their country.
    Organizers say they expect up to a million people to participate in the “Rosary on the Borders” event on October 7, the anniversary of the Battle of Lepanto, where “the Christian fleet overcame the Muslim armada, saving Europe from Islamization.”
    The Catholic Feast of the Holy Rosary was established by Pope Pius V in 1571 as “Our Lady of Victory” after the so-called Holy League won a landmark victory over the Ottoman Turks at the Battle of Lepanto.
    On October 7th, 1571, a fleet of ships assembled by a coalition of Christian nations fought an intense battle against the forces of the invading Ottoman Empire. The unexpected victory of the so-called “Holy League” radically curbed efforts by the Ottoman Turks to control the Mediterranean, “causing a seismic shift in international relations from East to West.” As Fr. Steve Grunow, CEO of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries, has written, “the world that we know came into being with this victory.”
    In preparation for this decisive encounter, Pope Pius V ordered the churches of Rome opened for prayer day and night, and urged the faithful to invoke the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary through the prayer of the Rosary. On hearing of the Christian victory, the Pope established a new feast day in the Roman Liturgical Calendar, which would come to be known as the feast of the Holy Rosary.
    “We believe that if the rosary is prayed by about a million Poles along the borders of the country, it may not only change the course of events, but open hearts of our compatriots to the grace of God,” the organisers say on their website.
    “The powerful prayer of the Rosary can affect the fate of Poland, Europe, and even the whole world,” it reads.
    The “Rosary on the Borders” event will also mark the end of the Fatima centenary, celebrating 100 years since the apparitions of the Virgin Mary to three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal, in the spring of 1917.
    The Polish bishops’ conference has endorsed the event, and asked all Catholics to join the rosary prayer for “the intentions of Poland and the whole world,” even if they are physically unable to make it to the border.
    “Families may pray in their homes, sick in hospitals, and parish communities in their churches,” they said.
    “A hundred years ago, Mary gave these three Portuguese children a message of salvation: repent, give reparation for sins against my Immaculate Heart and pray the rosary,” the bishops said. Rosary on the Borders is a “special opportunity” to fulfil that calling.
    Every January, the Church in Poland celebrates an annual Day of Islam, organised by the Joint Council of Catholics and Muslims and the Committee for Dialogue with Non-Christian Religions of the Polish Bishops’ Conference.
    Auxiliary Bishop Henryk Ciereszko of Bialystok, whose diocese hosted the event this year, said that the day “would be first and foremost a prayer meeting” and would also be “an opportunity to counter violence together” in “the context of the terrorist attacks and the Middle East war.”

    .
    They're a year off. This event in October, 2017 marks 99 years since the apparitions, not 100.
    .
    This is not the end of the Fatima centenary yet.
    .
    The end of the Fatima centenary is October, 2018. So there is still time!
    .
    In October of 1918 it was the end of the first year, and October of 1928 was the end of the 10th year... etc.

    This sounds like something we could do without.
    .
    Why should the Church celebrate an annual Day of Islam? 
    .
    Are they hoping by this example Islam will then celebrate an annual Day of Catholicism?
    .
    Is that how Pope Pius V led the Church to victory at Lepanto, by celebrating a Day of Islam?

    Huh? I think you should revisit that math problem.
    "If I could only make the faithful sing the Kyrie, the Gloria, the Credo, the Sanctus and the Agnus Dei ... that would be to me the finest triumph sacred music could have, for it is in really taking part in the liturgy that the faithful will preserve their devotion. I would take the Tantum ...

    I think the trick is to start counting from "0", no?
    Many people say "For the Honor and Glory of God!" but, what they should say is "For the Love, Glory and Honor of God". - Fr. Paul of Moll

  • Sorry for this version from a pseudo "conservative" news out let written by fallen ordo priest who had to promote a false religion.  I apologize for posting the version. 

    A Day of what?? World Youth Day in Poland was bad enough with exposing children to stations of the cross which were evil. 

    I was impressed that millions in Poland were praying the Rosary.  

    The problems in USA, Poland and the rest of the world is Catholic hierarchy isn't Catholic.

    .
    It's correct. When you turn 40 years old, you continue to be 40 all year. It's not the end of being 40 until you turn 41.
    .
    Every century there are celebrations a year early, because it's not the end of the century until XX01 comes around.
    .
    December 31st, 2000 was the last day of the 20th century, not Dec. 31st 1999.
    .
    Therefore the year 2001 was the first year of the 21st century.
    .
    The Fatima apparitions took place in 1917, so October 1918 was the first anniversary, which took a year from that date.
    .
    The apparitions were one year old until they became two years old, which happened from May to October of 1919.
    .
    A century is 100 years, not 99 years and one day.
    .

    Yes, we're still within the 100th year. Was that your point?
    I think you threw me off here:

    This event in October, 2017 marks 99 years since the apparitions, not 100
    October 2017 was the beginning of the 100th year and October 2018 is the end of the 100th year (of the last apparition, that is).
    But, they (and everyone else) were celebrating that 100 years have passed, not 100 years and 364 days.
    "If I could only make the faithful sing the Kyrie, the Gloria, the Credo, the Sanctus and the Agnus Dei ... that would be to me the finest triumph sacred music could have, for it is in really taking part in the liturgy that the faithful will preserve their devotion. I would take the Tantum ...
