Thank all of you and God bless you for praying for our country.

Our Father which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day, our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory for ever.
Amen.

Said the rosary earlier this evening. I am in. The rosary is a weapon against evil.

A baby born in a stable, without subsidized health care. Imagine that!

And don't forget Elizabeth, who managed to give birth to John the Baptist without subsidized prenatal care.

...with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

God might be wondering why we haven't gotten off our duffs yet and try to fix this problem ourselves, as our Founding Fathers did.

The Lord helps those who help themselves.

You're right. Meanwhile, I will pray that He will show me what to do. At some point, however, we have to accept the fact that not everything is in our power to fix.

You can pray the rosary "on demand" with Father Reed on Catholic TV

Catholic TV Select the Mystery for that day

Thank you for keeping this going. I just discovered the Catholic TV site mentioned by notaliberal, so I am about to follow the Joyful Mysteries with Cardinal O’Malley. Usually I manage only one Rosary per day (at best), but you have inspired me.

You also inspired me to say a third one. (it’s done)My mother knew someone who said if you really want something, pray three rosaries a day. I’m gonna try three more for Sunday, in advance of the vote. (Gotta sleep first). Father Corapi’s virtual rosary on the previous ping would be a big help for anyone unfamiliar with the rosary.

Thank you for the link. Another prayer I like to add, after the Hail Holy Queen, is the Memorare:

REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.

Hope for the best, prepare for the worst. Its time to openly discuss ways any American patriot can avoid this illegal unconstitutional mandate. I for one have already maxed out my dependents on my paycheck and April 15 will just be a date on a calendar. And I am planning on converting everything I own so the IRS cannot confiscate it, my 15 year old son just inherited two motorcycles and my custom Silverado, and of course all my other personal items. If needed to be I will sacrifice myself for the family so no assets from any family member will be confiscated, they can try to arrest me, if they can find me, I will become a leaf in the wind and quit my secure job and find ways to make an income thats non taxable, IE, under the counter. Do the Federales can try and act imperialistic, they can come marching to my home like WW2 SS and demand to know if healthcare evaders are hiding under the floor, oh yeah, let them try it.

Don’t thank ME, Giotto, I thank YOU for this thread.

And I’ve kept my promise and finished the rosary, in addition to my daily rosary for peace. I had fallen away from saying the rosary until a few years ago when I began to worry about our freedom, and remembered how often Mary has told us to pray for peace.

Of course you can pray the rosary. The Blessed Mother would have a wide smile when she hears from you. Remember she’s also your heavenly mother and makes it plain that we should all call home frequently.

Fulton J. Sheen, from his essay on the Rosary:

It is objected that there is much repetition in the Rosary because the Lord's Prayer and the Hail Mary are said so often; therefore some say it is monotonous.

That reminds me of a woman who came to see me one evening after instructions. She said, "I would never become a Catholic. You say the same words in the Rosary over and over again, and anyone who repeats the same words is never sincere. I would never believe anyone who repeated his words and neither would God."

I asked her who the man was with her. She said he was her fiancé. I asked: "Does he love you?" "Certainly, he does," "But how do you know?" "He told me." "What did he say?"

"He said 'I love you.'"

"When did he tell you last?"

"About an hour ago."

"Did he tell you before?"

"Yes, last night."

"What did he say?"

"I love you."

"But never before?"

"He tells me every night."

I said: "Do not believe him. He is repeating; he is not sincere."

The beautiful truth is that there is no repetition in, "I love you." Because there is a new moment of time, another point in space, the words do not mean the same as they did at another time or space.

Love is never monotonous in the uniformity of its expression. The mind is infinitely variable in its language, but the heart is not. The heart of a man, in the face of the woman he loves, is too poor to translate the infinity of his affection into a different word. So the heart takes one expression, "I love you," and in saying it over and over again, it never repeats. It is the only real news in the universe. That is what we do when we say the Rosary, we are saying to God, the Trinity, to the Incarnate Saviour, to the Blessed Mother: "I love you, I love you, I love you."

Each time it means something different because, at each decade, our mind is moving to a new demonstration of the Saviour's love.

After we pray the Rosary, pray this:

Prayer to the Blessed Virgin never known to fail.

Most beautiful flower of Mt. Carmel
Blessed Mother of the Son of God, assist us
in our need. Help us and show us you are our mother.
Oh Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and
earth, we humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart
to help us in this need. (state intentions)
Oh Mary, conceived without sin, Pray for us (3X)
Holy Mary, I place this cause in your hands (3X).

Say prayers 3 days.

Our Lady said: the Rosary and the Scapular are powerful weapons against evil and all its works.

Glorious Mysteries said last night; Joyful Mysteries today.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us and for the unborn, who will be in even more danger if this monstrosity passes; the possibility of the repeal of Roe vs. Wade will be slim to none - abortion paid for with our tax dollars will guarantee it.

O clement, O loving, O sweet virgin Mary, pray for us, O holy Mother of God, that we may be worthy of the promises of Christ.

O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions but, in your mercy, hear and answer us. We ask you to beseech your Son to bring low all those who promote abortion, to bring this Bill to defeat, to chastise and enlighten those elected Catholic leaders who continually fight for abortion, to strengthen women considering abortions to resist the temptation, and to send America a powerful prophet/leader who can reach the hearts and minds of young people today and fill them with true love for Christ. O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.
