Both Church and Nation are interwoven, so must be dealt with together, since they involve the same people. It is a grace to have these few beautiful thoughts from both Lord David Alton and Mr Jacob Rees-Mogg MP.
Lord Alton has sent his encouragement saying;
“The Venerable Father Patrick Peyton was known as the Rosary Priest. He famously said that "The family that prays together stays together" and that "A world at prayer is a world at peace". What was true then is true now – and Fr.Peyton would certainly be encouraging us all to take part in the Rosary on the Coast.”
Mr Jacob Rees-Mogg MP said;
This is an extremely important initiative as the Rosary has been one of the most powerful forms of prayer since it was given by the Blessed Virgin to St. Dominic. Pope St. Pius V, known as the Pope of the Rosary, established the Feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary and attributed the victory at the Battle of Lepanto 1572 to the intercession of Our Lady after he had asked all of Europe to recite the Rosary. Many subsequent Popes have had a special devotion to the Rosary, including Pope St. John Paul II.
With every good wish,
