Chesterton said, “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”

We have received the notice below from a member of the Order in the United States, and would thoroughly recommend to everyone, particularly members of the Order and Companions, this most excellent initiative of prayer for the Church and the intention of the Holy Father.

You are encouraged, as it says, to pass this on by email to your Catholic friends.

We take this opportunity, on behalf of the Grand Prior, who thanks you all most warmly for your prayers for his continued recovery, of wishing all our readers a most holy and joyful Triduum and Eastertide.
Are you aware there is an initiative to unite all Catholics in prayer on Good Friday between Noon and 3pm. 
Everyone is aware of the downward moral spiral we are all caught up in which seems to be touching every aspect of our lives. Please consider praying with us to bring peace to the world and protection to those who are most in need of our protection, like the homeless, the elderly, children and young people, and the unborn. 
There is a great deal to gain and absolutely nothing to lose!
Imagine what might happen if every Catholic in the world would pray a Rosary on the same day! We have an example in October of 1573, when Europe was saved from the invasion of the mighty Turkish fleet, by the praying of the Rosary by all Christians.
So, on Good Friday, let us all pray a Rosary for peace in the world and the return of moral values into our communities. If possible, please pray your Rosary between Noon and 3:00pm 
Also, please e-mail this message to every Catholic on your address list, and ask them to pass it along to every Catholic on their lists. Let's unite in praying one of the most powerful prayers in existence, for these intentions, on one of the holiest days in our Church year.
