|Miracle of the Sun—Read all about it! Imagine yourself in Fatima, Portugal on October 13, 1917.It’s raining, and you are soaking wet, yet you are not going anywhere.You are standing alongside 70,000 people waiting… …waiting for a sign.
You see, the Blessed Mother had already appeared five times to Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta and she had promised a sign, and she always fulfills her promises.

I will pray for you as I always do, and ask Our Blessed Mother of Fatima that you too will devote your life to her.

Saint Denis was the first bishop of Paris, back in the third century when Paris was still very much a Roman city. The prodigious number of conversions Denis performed got him on the bad side of the local pagan priests. So the Roman rulers of Paris had Denis arrested and brought him to the highest hill in Paris, now known as Montmartre, where he was executed by — you guessed it — beheading.

Don’t be afraid to come because of what the protestors did last year – the police have committed to doing better this time. Now, more than ever, pro-lifers need to be seen and heard.

This is the 6th annual March for the Babies. It is a peaceful rally to defend the rights of unborn babies and their mothers against the 2008 Abortion Law Reform Act. See marchforthebabies.org.au for more. An update on September 19th on the website says: “We met with Victoria Police Command tonight and were more than satisfied with their assurances that police resources will be boosted significantly this year to avoid a repeat of last year’s violence. October 11 will be the safest March yet!” See you there!
