Catholics in Ireland are planning to hold a mass-rosary recital around the country’s coastline as next year’s abortion referendum approaches.
The ‘Rosary on the Coast for Life and Faith’ will take place on Sunday, November 26, the feast of Christ the King. Organizers take inspiration from the recent Rosary at the Borders in Poland, and a similar event in Italy.
“Our island is in the midst of a catastrophic loss of Catholic faith especially among the young,” the organizers say on Facebook. “Ireland, North and South, is facing an immediate threat to the protection of our unborn babies.”
From the Facebook posting:
ENCIRCLING IRELAND WITH A HUMAN ROSARY
Ideally we will have a minimum of 53 locations around the coast for the Hail Marys in a Rosary. If we have more, that’s even better.
HOW YOU CAN HELP…ORGANIZE A LOCATION
We are calling on individual lay faithful, friends, prayer groups, apostolates, etc to select locations that they will travel to on the day. We are working on Our Lord’s Word that ‘where two or three gathered’, Christ our King and Mary our Queen will be there. But don’t worry once your location is on the list Our Lady will bring more!
SEND US YOUR LOCATION…..be very precise
email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0872786552 or message us on this fb page..Send us also if you can the google map reference.
