There are those who think that people of faith should keep their faith to themselves, or at least to keep it within the walls of their church buildings. However, one of the founding principles of America is the freedom of religion, the right of all people to worship freely, without government constraint. True worship is a way of life, to exercise one’s faith in all that one does, at work, at school, in the voting booth or in the public square.
We invite you to walk with other faithful citizens as we pray the Holy Rosary and Divine Mercy Chaplet through the streets of downtown Indianapolis. We pray for the conversion of sinners; for the forgiveness of our personal sins and the sins of our nation; for protection of Life, Holy Matrimony and religious freedom. Religious persecution takes many forms, from beheadings and crucifixions in the Middle East, to the attempted erosion and closing of Catholic institutions serving those in need. Prayer is our first and most powerful offense and defense against persecution in all its forms.
Join us on the fourth Saturday of every month following the 10 a.m. Mass at Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary Catholic Church, 520 Stevens St., Indianapolis. The procession leaves from Holy Rosary, travels south on East St. to McCarty St., to Virginia Ave, to East St., and back to the church, concluding no later than 12 p.m.
It is by being faithful to Christ and His Church that we become faithful citizens of our country. We are Catholics, we are Americans, and we are faithful citizens.
