Thank you for supporting our National Rosary Rally to keep Ireland Catholic.
We got the 13.5 million Rosaries!
National Rosary Rally for the Consecration of Ireland to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
From the earliest times Ireland's Christian heritage has included a great love and devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. And her heavenly apparition at Knock showed us Mary's love for Ireland. She has brought this land through times of persecution, famine and distress by her love and prayers. Help us to turn to her aid for our future as a nation and people.
"There is no problem, I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot solve by the prayer of the Rosary"
Sr. Lucy, Visionary of Fatima
Recently a Steering Committee for the National Consecration of Ireland to the Immaculate Heart of Mary (SCNCI) has been formed in Knock, the spiritual capital of Ireland. One of our main functions is to launch a national Rosary rally to obtain pledges from the public to pray for the intention of the Consecration of Ireland to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in their daily Rosary for one year.
"The Rosary is THE weapon for these times"
St. Padre Pio
Our target is for 13 million Rosaries to be prayed which breaks down to 35,616 individuals praying for this intention in their daily Rosary for a year. That's only 0.8% of the Irish population doing what Our Blessed Mother asked for at Fatima, Portugal in 1917. Once we have enough people praying the Rosary for this intention these pledges will be formally presented by the SCNCI to the Irish Bishops Conference to request that they consecrate the country to Our Lady's Immaculate Heart
"The Holy Rosary is a powerful weapon. Use it with confidence and you will be amazed at the results"
St. Josemaria Escriva
Already 35,616 are including this intention in their daily rosary as you can see from our Rosary-meter on the right of this page and we aim to gather more support in the coming months so that millions of rosaries are being recited throughout the country and beyond to preserve Ireland's Christian Heritage
"Give me an army saying the Rosary and I will conquer the world!"
Blessed Pope Pius IX
Just as Ireland rescued a dying Roman civilisation from the sword of barbarism in the 5th century, so she is destined to recover her spiritual roots and re-evangelise a morally decaying modern Europe. Ireland's own St. Malachy prophesied in the 12th Century that there would come a time when Ireland would persevere in the faith during seven centuries of foreign occupation, regain her missionary spirit and even bring the English back to the faith! More recently Blessed Pope John Paul II prophesied during his visit to Clonmacois the ancient 6th century missionary centre of in Ireland in 1979 that "These ruins are still charged with a great mission". The pope's silent prayer that followed we can only presume included the future faith of this land….
