Pray the Angel of Death Passes Over Ireland!! 54 Day Rosary Novena Starts on Easter Sunday!!



Irish Catholics have asked the world to join with them in prayer to save them from joining ranks with the culture if death.

According to the Guardian:

Ireland will vote in a referendum on 25 May on liberalising its strict abortion laws, the government has confirmed, in an announcement that officially begins two months of campaigning.


Abortion has long been a divisive issue in the once stridently Catholic country. A complete ban was only lifted in 2013, when terminations were allowed in cases where the mother’s life was in danger.


Voters will be asked if they want to repeal article 40.3.3 – known as the eighth amendment – which since 1983 has given unborn foetuses and pregnant women an equal right to life, in effect enshrining a ban on abortion in the country’s constitution.


If Ireland votes in favour of repeal, the government has said it will introduce legislation permitting unrestricted abortion during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.


Currently, terminations are only allowed when the life of the mother is at risk, and the maximum penalty for accessing an illegal abortion is 14 years in prison. The UN’s human rights committee has condemned the ban as “cruel, inhuman and degrading”.


The health minister, Simon Harris, and housing minister, Eoghan Murphy, signed the order to set the date of the historic vote after legislation allowing for it was passed in the Seanad, the second chamber of the Irish parliament. Polls will open at 7am on 25 May and close at 10pm.


The EWTN 54-day Rosary Novena to protect Ireland from abortion starts today, Easter Sunday 1st April, and ends on Thursday 24th May, the day before the Referendum. Please see more information.

We want to inspire as many people as possible to pray the Rosary at this time. I therefore ask that you tell as many people as possible about this Novena, eg. family, friends and other email contacts who you think might join with us to pray the Rosary for Ireland at this time.

You may have noticed that EWTN has already started broadcasting the TV Spots across all of the English-speaking countries: Ireland, Britain, Europe, USA, Canada, Asia, Africa, Pacific, including Australia & New Zealand. They will also be translated into Spanish for broadcast across south America. In addition, we hope to broadcast them on our German network.

We intend this pro-life message & our invitation to pray the Rosary to be both national & international, one great prayer to God – through our Blessed Mother.

Please see the links below showing this week’s EWTN TV Spots featuring some inspiring pro-life speakers with an invitation to pray the Rosary.





Thank-you very much and may the joy of the Risen Christ be with you this Easter!
