Archbishop Raymond L. Burke of the Archdiocese of St. Louis launched a Rosary Crusade on May 9, 2006, to safeguard embryonic human life and prevent human cloning. The need for the Crusade in Missouri is heightened because of a proposed state constitutional amendment that will permit the use of public funds and guarantee scientists the constitutional right to clone human beings and destroy tiny human embryos for research purposes. The research in view violates both the sanctity and the dignity of human life.
The power of praying the Rosary through the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe is long-recognized in the history of the Church. “Like the Christians before the Battle of Lepanto, we must call upon God’s help by praying the Rosary, calling especially upon the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mother of America and Star of the New Evangelization,” said Archbishop Burke when he announced the Crusade.
To join the Crusade, members pledge to pray the Rosary faithfully from now until November 7, 2006, the day that Missourians will vote on the proposed amendment. To join the Crusade, click here.

It's official. The Catholic Knight is retired. I'm hanging up the helmet and passing the torch. There will be no more articles, no more commentaries, no more calls to action. THIS BLOG IS CLOSED. I've spent a very long time thinking about this, I believe the time has come, and is a bit overdue.

I recommend the following blogs for my readers to bookmark and check on regularly. Pick one as your favourite, or pick them all. They are all great.....
