Fifteen Decades of the Rosary and Marian Hymns were prayed and sung as we processed from the church grounds through town and back again. It was edifying to see so many come together to plead for Our Lady's intercession in this time of great need for Holy Mother Church.
"...Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen."
