Rosaries for unborn campaign drawing prayers worldwide

Memphis, Tenn., Mar 1, 2010 / 06:12 pm (CNA).- A Catholic group leading a multi-national prayer effort has had 3,000 people register from countries all over the world to pray a Rosary for the unborn. The May 7-9 prayer event, “One Million Rosaries for Unborn Babies,” is being coordinated by the Saint Michael the Archangel Organization.

“Throughout the world in the last 50 or so years, an incomprehensible tragedy has happened; namely, the surgical killing of approximately one billion unborn human persons and the non-surgical killing of a multitude of unborn human persons,” said Patrick Benedict, President of the Saint Michael the Archangel Organization. “Throughout the history of mankind, no other group of people has ever gone through such a horror.”

“Sitting by and allowing this massacre to continue is not an option,” he added. “When we say that Christ died for each of us, that includes each unborn human person. In the eyes of God, these babies are precious.”

“Yet, an attack of hellish proportions has been waged for many years now against the unborn babies,” Benedict continued, saying that the “prayer event can be seen as a counter-attack in which participants pray the Rosary for the unborn babies who can not pray for themselves.”
