2 Feb – Rosary To The Interior: For the Purification of the Church

I just received an email about an interesting project.

On February 2, 2018, which is the day celebrating the double Feast of the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple and the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary, there will occur throughout the United States the gathering of faithful in their parish churches to pray the Rosary for the intention of the Purification of the Church, and the Triumph of the Light of Christ over all sin and error.

While being inspired by the Rosary on the Borders in Poland, this Rosary event – titled Rosary To The Interior: For the Purification of the Church does indeed have a different and very specific intention. Recognizing that the Catholic Church alone in this world was blessed and commissioned with the Light of Christ necessary for triumph over the Darkness of sin and error, and that this Light has now been severely obscured by the sin and errors of its own members, this Rosary asks us to turn our eyes inward in order to effect that interior purification which alone can once again make Christ’s Light manifest in its fullness to the world.

A website has been established, which offers a more complete explanation of both the nature and structure of this event. It is found here:

    These efforts to organize large numbers of us to join in praying the Rosary for our nation as inspired by Our Lady of Fatima are really encouraging.
    First Poland, then Italy, then Ireland, then California, and we had a Rosary On the Coasts and Borders across the United States on December 12.
    Each of these efforts featured a consecration to the Immaculate Hear of Mary and entrusting of our nation/State to Mary’s protection.

    This one looks a little different, since it focuses on our internal purification.
    Do we know who is organizing this effort?
    I went to the website and found no indication of who is behind it. It was particularly curious, since the contact page requires the questioner to give his own name and personal information before knowing who he is asking. hmmm ….
    If we are being asked to stand up and be counted, the request ought not to be made anonymously.
