A good reason for all Christians to unite in prayer
THE UNITED STATES AND THE FUTURE OF THE WORLD MAY VERY WELL DEPEND ON THE UNITING OF CHRISTIANS OF EVERY FAITH AND THE ROSARY CAN BE THE UNIFYING PRAYER!
Our Lord declared if one would be His disciple, he would have to bear crosses in their life. In the life-span of every true Christian the joy of life are intermingled with sorrows, with suffering and sacrifice, which if borne in the spirit of the gospel, eventually lead to glory.
All Christians should unite in prayer against the forces of evil which are meeting with greater success in their efforts to draw men into sin, and “Wars are a punishment from God for sin.” Everywhere in the world there has been a tremendous increase in terrorism, abortions, divorce, birth control, paganism, materialism and secularism, homosexuality, prostitution, juvenile delinquency, sex crimes, and immorality in general have increased to an alarming degree since World War II. Much of this has been caused by the indecent fashions, and much by the filthy propaganda reaching Americans through the movies television, radio, newspapers, and particularly through the overwhelming torrent of indecent literature which has deluged us the past several years. Money, material possessions, fame and power have become the “gods” worshipped by millions of Americans today. Men, women, and children are now turning to drugs and over indulging in alcohol instead of to God for the solution to life’s problems. Worst of all there is an organized attempt, which is coming out into the open more all the time, "to deny the existence of God", and to destroy Him in the minds of the youth, and to take God out of our schools, and our country. All of these and many other crimes will combine to bring down upon us the wrath of God in the form of suffering, persecution and even atomic war—that may well be the end of our civilization. Think about this !
Putting the peace plan into action:
We must do Penance and Reparation. By penance, Our Lady explained that men must amend their lives, give up their easy lives of sin, ask pardon for their sins, and make reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, so grievously offended by the sins of men. By reparation, Our Lady means 1) offering sacrifice to atone for our sins, 2) fulfilling our daily duties to the best of our abilities, 3) accepting the responsibilities of our state in life, 4) and we must obey the Commandments of God. Every Christian can do this. The sacrifice Our Lord requires of each of us is that sacrifice necessary to avoid sin and the occasion of sin and to accept with submission all the suffering sent to us. Also, we should make everything we do a sacrifice, and in offering it to God, we should say this prayer: “O my Jesus, I offer this for love of Thee, for the conversion of poor sinners, and in reparation for all the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.”
Our lady pleaded and insisted that men must say the daily Rosary. Reparation holds back the hand of God from striking the world in just punishment for its many crimes. The Rosary is like a sword or weapon the Mother of God can use to cut down heresy and the forces of evil. It is most powerful, and many times it has saved the world from situations as bad as, if not worse than, the situations facing us today.
