Altar and Rosary Society


To Our Lady of Guadalupe

Mary, Our Lady of Guadalupe
and patroness of the Americas,
you brought an end to the human sacrifices
onthe Aztec altars in the 16th century
by means of your image on the cloak of
St. Juan Diego.
So now we ask you to come to our aid and
bring an end to the sacrificing of our preborn children on the altar of sexual excess and convenience.
Bring us leaders who will respect life from the first
moment of conception until natural death.
Make them strong, honest and
moral men and women.
And, through their efforts, save our nation from moral annihilation and make us a culture of life!
Holy Virgin of Guadalupe, Queen of Peace, save
the nations and peoples of this continent!
