His Excellency, Bishop Athanasius Schneider, Endorses Rosary Coast to Coast!

His Excellency, Bishop Athanasius Schneider, endorses Rosary Coast to Coast to take place on October 7, the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, with a 54 Day Rosary Novena beginning on August 15:

“In moments of great danger, a child grasps spontaneously the hand of its mother, seeking her protection and consolation. There was hardly another epoch in history, in which Christianity was attacked so systematically, cruelly and cunningly as it is the case in our days. One has the impression, that the attacks will be still intensified. However, we have the unspeakable luck and privilege to be children of Mary, of a Mother, who is the Queen of Heaven and Earth, who conquered all heresies. As children of Mary we want to grasp the hand of our heavenly Mother, in order  to have protection against the visible and invisible attacks of the enemies of Christ; in order to receive consolation in midst of the great doctrinal and liturgical confusion, which reigns in the life of the Church of our days. 


The seeking refuge in the arms of our heavenly Mother finds its best expression in the prayer of the Rosary. Recently we could hear reports, which spoke how in different countries Catholics formed human chains praying the Rosary, circling, in a way, the country on its strategic points. It would be desirable, that such human praying chains would be formed in many places: circling our villages, our towns and our countries. May there arise a new movement of people who courageously will pray the Rosary in public places.


It is a true joy that there is hold in the United States of America a Rosary Prayer called „from coast to coast“. I wholeheartedly welcome and endorse this noble prayer initiative. May the “Coast to Coast” Rosary bring to all citizens of the United States, to the people with governmental responsibilities, to all faithful Catholics, to the priests and bishops and first and foremost to the catholic families a spiritual grace-filled rain of roses. The Rosary of Our Lady will bring the victory of the Catholic Faith, the victory both over the enemies of the Catholic Faith outside and inside the Church. The Rosary will bring us protection and victory over the enemies of Christ, as it happened already in history.


I believe that the “Rosary Coast to Coast” on October 7, 2018 in the United States will be among several other initiatives, a contribution to the victory of our holy Faith under the protecting mantle the Queen of the Holy Rosary. May God bless all abundantly!”
