A reader has brought this grassroots initiative to my attention and I wanted to pass it on. Here is the link to their website: http://www.solidarityinprayer.com/ and here is a FLYER with more information. Although they are initially targeting US parishes, it is certainly not restricted to those. Let us all be united in prayer on October 13, 2016. Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!
Added later: At my request, here is a note from one of the group’s founding members: “We are only asking for their parish’s name after they’ve signed up so we know who’s in. No money is being or will be asked for.” They have added this to their contact page: “We are not, and will not, ask for money. We will not fill your inbox with useless emails or give out your contact information. This is an effort that you lead locally with your pastor.”
No one is obliged to participate and everyone who does so, it is at their own risk. May Our Lady of Fatima lead and guide us all. Blessed Mother, pray for us!
(I have now vetted the Solidarity in Prayer group and am satisfied that it is a legitimate and worthy undertaking. The person who contacted me is a parishioner of St. Bernard of Clairvaux parish, Cincinnati. His pastor is Fr. Don Siciliano. To show his support, Fr. Don posted and linked the Solidarity in Prayer website in a Facebook post on July 22, challenging others to join. You’ll need to scroll down for the July 22 post.)
