Non-stop Rosary vigil to defeat ObamaCare

Posted on 12/19/2009 5:17:02 PM PST by giotto

The 60 votes are there for ObamaCare to pass in the Senate. The only thing preventing a vote is a blizzard in Connecticut, where Joe Lieberman went home for Sabbath. So you might say that God is the reason, both for sending Joe home and for sending the snow storm.

I'm beginning to think that it will take a miracle to stop this massive take-over of the health care industry. So I propose an ongoing Rosary vigil. How it works is that I begin by saying a Rosary. When I finish, I reply to this thread. Hopefully, someone else will then take up the vigil and pray. If you decide to join us in prayer, please reply to this thread. It doesn't have to be a whole Rosary. It can be one decade, or even just a Hail Mary. Comments are welcome.

I will give it a try, then ping back when I finish. Then we’ll see. Too bad those proddies don’t believe in the rosary. A whole lot of rosaries mean a whole lot of help.

I’m personally praying that an accident happens and a few of those votes dissappear in the storm!

It is an EXTRAORDINARY idea, and I have put together a Web site for that reason and others as well, of course ...

The Rosary Online (in English and Spanish)

Remember folks, if you do not believe the recitation of the Rosary has powers beyond belief, read Remembering Lepanto

If you don't pray to Our Lady, you can't say you've done absolutely everything in your power to stop this atrocious bill, and like the poster said, even one Hail Mary is beneficial.

I’m in on this Rosary deal!

It worked at Lepanto, when Islamism was stopped way short of its goals.

Mary Immaculate, Patroness of our beloved country, pray for us. Pray that the antilife Healthcare bill will go down, just as the Muslims did at Lepanto!

Just finished one decade, reflecting on the third joyful mystery, The Nativity.

“So I propose an ongoing Rosary vigil. How it works is that I begin by saying a Rosary.”

Say a rosary that this S.O.B. in the Oval Office sees his majority in Congress evaporate after this bill is approved,
that he is impeached, that he is tried for treason, and that he is convicted and sent to a Federal Prison for the rest of his miserable, treacherous, mendacious, life.

Say a Rosary that Americans finally wake up - all of them - the fiend that is the Marxist Muslim President and the political party, media and infrastructure which supports him.

And FINALLY, pray a Rosary that either the GOP leadership in Congress locates its testicles, backbone and intestines, or they too are swept aside by the anger and rage of the public to make way for a third political party.

Thank you for the link to your Rosary site, and to the story of Lepanto. In many ways our plight is similar to that small Christian fleet. We face adversaries who are ruthless and determined to enslave us. We have fought with all available legal resources, but our enemy is lawless. We have very little time before this bill could get passed and signed into law.

Remember Protestants (of which I was one for 33 years), the Rosary is not *just* for Catholics. Pope John Paul II gives a nice explanation of that on The Rosary Online.

You are welcome giotto. Your idea is so splendid! I have been praying for the intercession from Our Lady through the Rosary for a quarter of a century, and have never regretted the time spent on even one Hail Mary. Mary was the only person (that wasn't God!) to walk the face of this earth sinless. For that reason alone, she makes the very best of friends to talk to via her Most Holy Rosary. Pray once, pray a thousand times. And then come back and pray some more.:)

Giotto, may I also add the Sacrament of Reconciliation for Catholics. I saw the most wondrous site today in Kenosha, Wisconsin at St. James Parish. My husband, my daughter and I stopped by in between her water polo games at a tournament at Carthage College, and there were at the very least 200 people going to confession. There were ten priests scattered throughout the church and none of them were in confessionals. They were all face-to-face and didn’t even have screens. There were young children there, young parents, middle aged folks and the elderly, all there to dump their sins and darkness. What an uplifting site!

It's really true. Our Father, Mary, the angels and saints, not to mention all the aborted children in heaven are waiting and are all ears listening to hear our prayers for help.

Thank you. I was wondering about that. My ancestors were Protestants from France but I follow no particular religion. I just never got into going to church
because my parents didn’t go. I know I missed out on a lot.

I love that site. I will check it out every chance I get and will try to
do my part.

There are also cuts to the VA, Medicare, nursing homes, and Tri Care for Life (retired Military health insurance, plus taxes on special needs children.

Thank you Tribal Princess. My parents were not churchgoers as I got older, and I too fell from going to my Lutheran church as a result. As I got even older and met my then boyfriend - now husband (who was a daily mass Catholic), I joined him at his church for daily mass and was awestruck at how many people day in and day out attended. I figured these folks could be doing a thousand other things but they chose to join one another in the Breaking of the Bread (partaking of the True Body of Christ through the Eucharist) and I was eventually taken in by the same Jesus that brought them there day after day, and as a result have been going to daily mass together with my husband since the day we wed (that's when I became an "official" Catholic) 25 years ago.

I have joined in this Rosary for our Freedom. I will also put Senator Nelson and all of the Catholic in name only, government officials on our Altar for prayer, during the Offertory in the AM, with the intention of Healthcare and reversal of those acts which so infringe upon our Free lives in this Country.

O Clement, O Loving, O Sweet Virgin Mary. Pray for us O Holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the Fire of His Love.
