PEEP Rosary Crusade

Action: please respond to this call from Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice, for prayers for our Bishops.

From PEEP (see here) We are praying that all the bishops of England and Wales will recognise this crisis and each take full responsibility for the proper teaching of the Faith in the schools, parishes and seminaries that he, and he alone, is answerable for in his diocese;

• that our bishops will maintain complete obedience to the Holy Father;

• that our bishops will exercise the powers of their office to defend their flocks against heretics, apostates, false prophets and teachers;

• that our bishops will use their authority to correct errors and false teaching;

• that our bishops will foster the spiritual lives of their flocks by word and example.

As failure to do this for the last forty years has caused the ‘genuine crisis' our Rosary crusade could be enough to resolve it, for as St Thomas of Canterbury wrote in a letter to the bishops of England and Wales in 1170,

“God gives no harvest unless what the bishop plants is the Faith of Peter and unless he himself assents to Peter's teaching” .

We suggest that everyone pledges ten Rosaries at least for this intention and those who can manage more, add all they can. We hope to set up a place on our web-site to record your pledges and of course pledges can be sent to us by post. We would like to present the Bishops of England and Wales with this Spiritual Bouquet when they meet next November so you have plenty of time to be really generous .

Tell PEEP of your pledge: proecclesia@hotmail.com

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
