Please do not allow your rosaries and sacrifices to go uncounted! The deadline for online submission is Sunday, September 3.
The Rosary Crusade ended on August 22. If you have not already turned in your tallies, the deadline to submit your totals online is this Sunday, September 3. After this date, there is no guarantee that any tallies will be accepted or counted towards the total.
Wtih 2 weeks remaining in the Rosary Crusade, 1.5 Million rosaries and 1.7 million sacrifices had already been turned in to the U.S, District of the Society of Saint Pius X.
This is in response to the call from Bishop Bernard Fellay, Superior General of the Society, for another Rosary Crusade as a spiritual preparation for the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima (May to October 1917). This crusade took place from August 15, 2016 to August 22, 2017.
Bishop Fellay, however, recently urged the faithful in a sermon given at the end of the Rosary Crusade:
Do not say: ‘Now that the [Rosary] Crusade is over, we stop!” If we have requested to pray so many rosaries and to live a life of sacrifice, it is precisely to be able to keep on. If technically the Crusade comes to an end, it is not supposed to stop. Remember what Our Lady used to say: ‘Penance and Rosary’. Let us be faithful to this request of Our Lady and let us ask with our all heart her triumph which -whenever God want- will come."
The September 3rd final tally date coincides with the feast of the patron of the Society, Pope St. Pius X. May he continue to guide the efforts of the superiors and priests of the Society, and may Our Blessed Mother continue to watch over all.
