Each Vigil at 9 p.m., during a solemn interval, the pilgrims kneel and raise their Rosary to Heaven invoking the powerful intercession of Jesus and Mary.

All roses are blessed by Jesus and Mary with the power of cure and conversion. They are passed out near the end of the Vigil (and Holy Hour) to the pilgrims who later press them in a book and laminate them on special cards (printed by SMWA) for distribution to all God's children, especially the ill and suffering. We receive many testimonials of the power of these mystical roses. Here is key task worker, Antonia Rehrl, of Kings Park, N.Y.

The good Fathers impart their priestly blessing


All the pilgrims raise candles to herald the 44th Anniversary of Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers, repeating the words:

Mary, Light of the World, pray for us
Our Lady of the Roses, pray for us
Mary, Help of Mothers, pray for us


After the Vigil, the pilgrims venerated the Crucifix kissed by Our Lady.


Dear Michael and Lay Order
of St. Michael,
       It was a great 44th and well worth the expense of SMWA! I understand that you are carrying a deficit of $4300 from the enormous Anniversary costs. Here's my thoughtful gift (tax-deductible) to help cover the 44th Anniversary gap and to assist with our beloved seer's upcoming 19th Anniversary events.
