The highlights of the Triduum in honour of Our Lady of the Rosary that took place in Dublin 7 to 9th October 2011:
1. The Poor of Dublin receiving 500 Rosary Beads and some requested Fr Andrew to be enrolled in the Brown Scapular for Our Lady’s protection as they walk the streets at night. This was the first time they were contacted in this way and they made us all feel so welcome at the feeding station they called the Day Centre.
2. Continuous Adoration and promotion took place over the three days promoting the International Eucharistic Congress in June 2012.
3. Over 70 school children heard the stories about the three children of Fatima with the visit of the Angel and all the children were enrolled in the Brown Scapular and each child received Rosary beads and a free copy of the award winning film The Call to Fatima DVD to share with their families at home. There were children from many different faiths but it was not an issue for the children or the teachers.
4. Close to 5000 Rosary beads were distributed free and a similar number was enrolled in the Brown Scapular over the three days by Fr Andrew Apostoli (Franciscan of the Renewal – Vice postulator for Archbishop Fulton Sheen -Based in New York / EWTN ). Our Lady told us that world will be saved by the prayer of the Rosary and the Brown Scapular=)
