Rosary Crusade 2017

On 3 September 2017, Scotland was consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  We are very pleased that one of the Bishops present at that Consecration is joining us for this year's Rosary Crusade of Reparation.   Bishop John Keenan of Paisley will lead the Crusade.  It is 100 years since Our Lady visited Fatima and asked the young shepherd children to pray the rosary and do sacrifice for sinners.  100 years!  It was a simple message, but how many of us are able to pray the rosary daily as Our Lady requested?  The errors of Russia have spread throughout the world as was predicted because this message wasn't sufficiently heeded.  Pray the rosary and, on Saturday, 14 October, join us for a very public rosary on the streets of London carrying before us the Statue of Our Lady of Fatima which was consecrated by Pope Pius XII as a pilgrim statue for England and Wales.  Let us get the spiritual boots on the streets in this centenary year to give witness to our Catholic Faith, living still in spite of dungeon, fire and sword, and to give honour to the Mother of God in the Month of the Holy Rosary!
