Rosary to Halt Construction of NYC Mosque

From Pyro7480"Pope St. Pius V trusted in the power of Our Lady's intercession through the Holy Rosary to save Christendom. He asked Christians everywhere to pray the Rosary for the victory of the united Christian fleet against the Mohammedan Turks. On 7 October 1571, at the Battle of Lepanto, the Turkish fleet was defeated, and the Catholic Church now celebrates the feast of Our Lady of Rosary every year on October 7.

After World War II, Fr. Petrus Pavlicek of Austria led a Rosary Crusade to save his country from communist domination. In 1955, the Soviet forces occupying their zone of Austria pulled out.

Our Lady's powerful intercession can stop a lesser but none the less important planned cause- the construction of 13-story Mohammedan center/mosque 2 blocks away from Ground Zero in New York City.

Please pray the Rosary on the feast of the Assumption with the intention that this mosque isn't built.
August 15 is also the 90th anniversary of the "Miracle on the Vistula," when the outnumbered Polish army drove back the invading Bolshevik army. Many of the Polish soldiers saw a vision of Our Lady during the battle."

I read this earlier on Free Republic. It's a great idea.

We're on it here in our little monastery.
I was in CT when 9-11 happened.
At the seminary.
Friends of mine lost loved ones; others had loved ones terribley wounded by this.
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us!
I thought the world was coming to an end on that day; came out of moral theology class, went to the dorm, watched the carnage...sat all night waiting for the "end"...I know...I do know...
