I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel. (Genesis 3:15)
In a powerful and uplifting display of unity and faith, over 80 parishioners from St. Andrew’s Catholic Church in Colchester and St. Francis Assisi Catholic Church in Lebanon gathered on Sunday, November 19th, in Lebanon, to pray the Rosary.
The occasion? A response to the introduction of a controversial 'Satan Club' at Lebanon Elementary School by a Salem, Massachusetts-based group named "The Satanic Temple", currently set to launch December 1st.
The inter-parish assembly prayed under a common purpose– to combat any negative influences that could potentially be brought about by such a club, and to uphold the values Catholics hold dear.
As the parishioners joined in prayer, the Holy Rosary became a symbol of spiritual fortitude, demonstrating that faith can be a powerful tool in navigating the complexities of the times.
In the midst of uncertainty, the faithful found strength in each other and in the ancient, holy tradition of the Rosary, proving that oftentimes, the most potent response to adversity is rooted in the timeless rituals of faith.
"Love the Madonna and pray the Rosary,
for her Rosary is the weapon against the evils of the world today"
~ Saint Padre Pio
