GREEN LAKE -- The second annual Public Rosary Rally will be held at Deacon Mills Park, 550 Mill St., on Saturday, Oct. 10, at 12 noon.

An invitation to pray the Rosary publicly is extended to all who love our country and are concerned about the direction in which it is going. Handouts with prayers and free rosaries will be available.

America is at a historic crossroads. Secularists are trying to push God from the public square. They reject His beneficial action upon society. But without God, where will our leaders get the wisdom to solve the problems we face?

There are alliances of powerful organizations, political forces, and mass media that work against the family as a basic unit of society. A morality that is opposed to both divine and natural law has been gradually and systematically imposed upon us.

Our country is in great need of public prayer, repentance, and conversion. God will hear us, especially if we pray through the intercession of His Blessed Mother. One of the best ways to do so is to pray the Rosary publicly.

Saint Louis de Montfort said, "Public prayer is far more powerful than private prayer to appease the anger of God and call down His mercy, and Holy Mother Church, guided by the Holy Spirit, has always advocated public prayer in times of public tragedy and suffering."

The Public Square Rosary Crusade is coordinated nationally by America Needs Fatima. For more information, visit

The rally is sponsored locally by the Council of Catholic Women of Our Lady of the Lake Parish. For more information, contact Janet Busboom at 920-295-4137 or Joyce Hayes at 920-294-0233.
