PALMDALE – Holding signs and singing hymns in Spanish, a crowd of more than 200 circled Poncitlan Square Saturday as part of a nationwide rosary rally to celebrate the 94th anniversary of the Virgin Mary’s apparition at Fatima.
“We are praying for guidance and praying for people who are on the wrong side of life,” said event organizer Steve Mendoza. “This event is for all people, of any race or color, to accept God and the heart of Jesus. They will circle the park until they finish the rosary”
Saturday’s Rosary Rally at Poncitlan Square was one of thousands of rallies taking place around the nation as part of the Public Square Rosary Crusade, a movement by the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property.
According to the organization’s website, the goal of the Rosary Crusade is:
“To counter the destructive secular agenda, asking God to guide every aspect of our society. As human efforts have failed to solve America’s key problems, we ask His immediate help for our nation’s leadership. He will hear our prayers, especially if we pray the Rosary of His Blessed Mother. Without prayer, specifically the Rosary, we will not find solutions to our nation’s many problems.”
