"If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church". (Our Lady's Words at Fatima 13 July 1917).
It may come as no surprise that Russia was the first country in the world to legalise abortion. The Bolshevik government legalised abortion only 3 years after Our Lady's words at Fatima. There is no question that this particular error has spread throughout the world and today, around 50 million children a year are killed in the womb. The Rosary Crusade has been approached by one of the local 40 days for Life groups to pray specifically for the closure of the Abortion clinic in Twickenham which they are targeting with their prayers and witness this year. Let us therefore pray for this intention and for the protection of unborn babies worldwide. It is only Divine intervention, through the intercession of Our Lady, which will stop this mass slaughter of the innocents.
Come, with rosaries at the ready, to Westminster Cathedral (1:45 pm) on Saturday!

|Harrod's had a special visitor on Saturday!|
The procession ended at the Brompton Oratory where an hour of hymns and prayers to our Lady and Our Lord was crowned by Solemn Benedication celebrated by Fr Christopher Andrews, OSB with Frs Ronald Creighton-Jobe and Rupert McHardy of the Oratory assisting. Fr John Hunwicke of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham gave a thoughtful Sermon on Our Lady of Victories, recalling the naval victory of Lepanto which was won by the power of the Holy Rosary. The beautiful Lady chapel in the Oratory reflects this theme as the altar is dedicated to Our Lady of Victories and has statues of the Dominican Saints, Pope Pius V and Rose of Lima.
Our Lady was accompanied by many young flower girls and altar boys and was hoisted high by the members of the Catholic Police Guild. The Knights of Malta were well represented, as were the Knights of Our Lady and the Brothers of the Little Oratory and we were thankful for the support of the dedicated priests who accompanied the procession, Fr. Simon Leworthy, Fr Rupert McHardy, Fr John Hunwicke and Fr Christopher Andrews, OSB.
See you next year?

The Rosary Crusade of Reparation is very pleased that the erudite Fr John Hunwicke of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham has accepted our invitation to preach at this year's Crusade. As indicated in his Blog, Fr Hunwicke was for nearly three decades at Lancing College, Oxford, where he taught Latin and Greek language and literature and was Head of Theology. He was Senior Research Fellow at Pusey House in Oxford. Father was ordained to the Catholic priesthood on the Feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour in 2012 and manages an interesting blog, Fr Hunwicke's Mutual Enrichment. We look forward to Father's words of wisdom!
