A new campaign – which began as a simple “tweet” from Bishop Joseph Strickland of the Diocese of Tyler, Texas – is kicking off what could be a tsunami of prayer known as the Marian Blue Wave to end abortion once and for all with the most powerful weapon in our arsenal – the Rosary.
The American Life League (ALL) is announcing its new campaign, the Marian Blue Wave (MBW), which asks the faithful to pledge one rosary a week for the intention of ending all abortion in the United States.
The idea was spawned by a simple phrase used in a tweet by Bishop Strickland.
ALL president Judie Brown explains: “On January 26 of this year, Bishop Joseph Strickland of the Diocese of Tyler, Texas, tweeted that our country needed to work and pray for a Marian Blue wave. That one tweet sparked an idea, and that idea sparked a brand new campaign to end abortion once and for all.”
She adds: “Our goal is simple: End abortion with the help of the Blessed Mother and her Son. We have spent the last 40 years waiting for laws and politicians to end the senseless murder of innocent preborn children, and what has changed? Absolutely nothing. Well enough is enough!”
When a participant(s) commits to the Marian Blue Wave, a blue icon will appear over their city on our interactive map. Participant(s) can pray their Rosary anywhere, at home, in Church, in front of an abortion clinic, etc.
There is no more powerful way to fight the scourge of abortion. As Brown recalls, this was the feeling of Professor Charles Rice, a founding advisor of ALL, who once wrote:
“Our reliance here must be on the Rosary rather than the sledge hammer (and on other prayers as well, especially in ecumenical gatherings). The most effective technique would be to confront every abortion facility in the country with a continuous, peaceful Rosary vigil lawfully conducted on the public sidewalk, including the offering of pro-life literature and counseling to persons entering and leaving the premises. This would not involve any obstruction or interference with anybody. But it would dramatize the opposition of abortion to the law of God. And only through the grace of God will we succeed in removing this scourge from our land.”
There is no end-date for this campaign. It will continue until specific goals are achieved: ending all clinical, chemical, medical and surgical abortion and shutting down every Planned Parenthood facility in the United States.
“With enough participants, a visible Marian Blue Wave will sweep the nation,” Judie writes. “What would our nation be like if millions of Christians prayed the Rosary every day for an end to abortion? That is the Marian Blue Wave.”
