We pray the Rosary, led usually by Fr John Saward, Priest in Charge of SS Gregory & Augustine's down the road. Before we start he exposes the Blessed Sacrament in the monstrance, and some of us stay in the church to keep Him company. At the end we have a brief Benediction.
"Today as we went to take up our positions, with the Most Blessed Sacrament next door inside the Church, there approached 7 volatile, jeering, almost demonic pro-death people.
"We were most definitely hounded today but one could hear the beauty of the Rosary - especially when all those able bodied knelt for the the Crucifixion mystery - which they especially loathed- ringing out and reaching the ears of God.
|This is what it normally looks like.|
"We did call the police who tried to diffuse the situation and have offered us sound advice for next time which will allow us to remain protected and safe. I suppose in many ways having such protesters only shows the magnitude of the truth, the pro life message reaching their hearts and souls and which will, please God, one day affect them and change their beliefs."
O Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us! And most of all, for them.
