On Tuesday, the feast of the nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary WQPH radio held the first of a series of events put on by WQPH over the next several days detailed here at the old Madonna of the Holy Rosary

There was a living rosary, a birthday cake and Ice cream to celebrate our lady’s birth and the exposition of the blessed sacrament.

But I thought one of the best parts of the event was this 15 minute talk by Fr. Joe Dolan the pastor of St Bernards Parish at St. Camillus church about the Rosary and it’s evolution over time.

Give it a watch and learn something about this most Catholic of prayers

As you might or might not know the Oklahoma City civic center will be playing host to a Black Mass today.

Bishops, Exorcists and others have done their best to warn the public and to take positive steps to oppose this dangerous act:

On Sunday, Sept. 21, we will gather for a public act of worship at St. Francis of Assisi Church. I invite all Catholics as well as other Christians and people of good will to join us for a Eucharistic Holy Hour, an outdoor Eucharistic procession and Benediction beginning at 3 p.m. We will prayerfully bear witness to our faith as an expression of our solidarity and in reparation for acts of blasphemy.

but if you are not in Oklahoma City you can make a difference.

This ordeal in our community has been ongoing for nearly three months, since we first became aware of the scheduled black mass. In spite of our apparent inability to prevent this sacrilegious event from taking place, I am grateful for a number of blessings that have accrued through this trial. I am grateful for the significant legal victory that allowed us to regain possession of the consecrated Host that would have been desecrated during the black mass. I am deeply grateful for the strong response to our appeal for prayer throughout the Christian community. People across Oklahoma, throughout our great country and around the world have responded with prayer and fasting. We have been given an opportunity to express our faith in the Lord and our profound gratitude for his gift of the Eucharist through acts of devotion. Many of our Catholic people have been appealing to St. Michael the Archangel for heavenly protection against the powers of evil in our world.

Here in Fitchburg the Knights of Columbus St. Anthony of Padua council # 15962 will be holding a Rosary of Reparation at 6 PM EST at St. Anthony of Padua Church 84 Salem Street Fitchburg Mass.   All are welcome to join us in this public Rosary and prayers.

Take the time to check if there is something similar going on in your diocese, if so attend if you can.  If there is not and there is a Eucharist Adoration chapel in your area (you can find the closest here)  visit it for a holy hour.

If that is not possible visit your local parish and pray your rosary or the Chaplet of St. Michael.  If you aren’t in a position to leave your house you can go to this site for a live image of the blessed sacrament and leave it up, offer a Rosary the prayer of St. Michael or other suitable prayers.

You can make a difference, for Oklahoma City, your own community and yourself.
