PRAY THE ROSARY!!
Have you been troubled by the apparent loss of a just and moral society, or perhaps, some suffering in your family and wanted to help but did not know how? If you are praying the rosary, then you are already helping!
Sr. Lucy of Fatima said the following in 2002 before her death; “The Most Holy Virgin in these last times in which we live has given a new efficacy to the recitation of the Rosary, to such an extent that there is NO problem, no matter how difficult it is, in the personal life of each one of us, of our families, or even the life of peoples and nations that cannot be solved by the Rosary. There is NO problem, I tell you no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary” - Sr. Lucy of Fatima.

A Catholic Women’s Community, Indianapolis Chapter
“Ever wonder if you’d find a community of like-minded Catholic women? “Well, here is one that is trying to reach women in the Indianapolis and surrounding area parishes.
The online group is meant as a gathering place for women of all Indianapolis and surrounding area parishes. The group’s goal is to deepen a life of prayer starting with daily Scripture devotionals shared by the main Blessed Is She Network. It is a supportive sisterhood that begins with the Word of God and helps foster growth in the faith. The group believes in beauty that points “toward the Divine” and helps women strive to live a Eucharistic life. Here locally, the bulk of the material shared is on Facebook, but can be accessed through Twitter and Instagram. Joining is free. Once you join, you have access to free Sunday Scripture studies from which you can journal and contemplate the Word to carry with you through the week. There is opportunity to share prayer requests with other Catholic women in Indianapolis. There are opportunities to share your or someone’s business/restaurant, conferences/retreats for free every two weeks. Blessed Is She Indy plans for the future to begin offering online discussion groups using Scripture studies from the Blessed Is She Network. The objective of the local Indianapolis group is for Catholic women of Indianapolis to come together to share our faith. It is like a meeting place with a “choose your own adventure” appeal. All of us learn in different ways. With Blessed Is She, you can take podcasts, webinars, workshops, daily devotionals, and more using them in your own faith journey how you see fit. “We are joyful as we help grow sisterhood and relationships rooted in our Catholic faith. Please connect and come grow in your love of our beautiful faith alongside us.”-Blessed Is She https://www.facebook.com/groups/BlessedIsSheIndianapolis/
