Let go and don’t give Up! Pray the Rosary!

Today in Ireland, with all the increasing attacks on the family, those who are advocates of true marriage and life can sometimes feel like throwing in the towel.

A few days ago, I was despairing over the upcoming Protection of Life during Pregnancy Bill which will legalise abortion on “mental health grounds” and even though the government denies it, this bill will lead to abortion on demand in Ireland.

For all of my efforts and the efforts of my family and friends: praying, attending vigils etc., it just seemed to me like it was all proving to be fruitless and all we were getting was more persecution from secular society and the government for our views on the sanctity of human life and true marriage .

But after a while, through perseverance, the feelings of despair went away. When you take a hit, you fall down. But you don’t lose by going down, you lose by STAYING DOWN. Don’t Give Up!

I can recall a time where I did give up on something. I often wonder how things could have been different, had I not given up. But I now know that God allowed me to make this mistake so that I could learn from it.

If you have regret over a mistake you made in the past, then let it go. Talk to a priest about it in confession, if you need too. Ask the Lord for forgiveness. Nobody is perfect. We all make mistakes. Like a video tape stuck in rewind, we constantly re-repeat in our minds our past errors. So please forgive yourself and stop beating yourself up.

We also find it hard to let go and forgive. If someone has knocked you down, forgive them and pray for them. Trust me, it will do you the world of good. Nothing good comes out of holding grudges.

If, as a result of persecution, you feel like giving up right now, please don’t! We really need you right now! I know that it is very hard right now, the odds seem to be against us.

But we have heaven on our side! Pray the Rosary! Satan is no match for Our Lady! She crushed the head of the serpent. I firmly believe that if everyone in this country prays the rosary everyday, then we will defeat this evil. Even if abortion, homosexual marriage and other evils are legalised in this country, keep fighting, keep praying. With the rosary as our weapon, Our Lady will lead us to victory, eventually! Our Lady will lead us to Jesus! No matter what happens, no matter how bad it gets, keep believing this!

Remember her words at Fatima “IN THE END, MY IMMACULATE HEART WILL TRIUMPH!.”

Remember it was Our Lady that lead the Holy League to victory over the Muslim forces in the Battle of Lepanto http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Our_Lady_of_the_Rosary

If you want Ireland to be victorious in the battle for true marriage and human life. Then please, I beg you, pray the Rosary, everyday!

“The Rosary is a powerful weapon to put the demons to flight and to keep oneself from sin…If you desire
peace in your hearts, in your homes, and in your country, assemble each evening to recite the Rosary.  Let
not even one day pass without saying it, no matter how burdened you may be with many cares and labors.”
-Pope Pius XI
