How do you defeat a global terrorist organization like ISIS, whose members are largely hidden throughout the world, and are willing to die in suicide bombings for their diabolical goals of worldwide mass murder and destruction?
The ultimate answer is through prayer. The battle against ISIS is, at its roots, a spiritual battle against the Devil and the forces of darkness.
We believe Mary, the Mother of Jesus and the Spiritual Mother of all peoples, has been given the power by God to crush the head of Satan (cf. Gen 3:15) and to successfully lead the spiritual battle against the great Dragon (cf. Rev. 12). Historically, Our Lady has repeatedly interceded for victories against foreign invasion seeking to destroy Christianity and Judeo-Christian civilization (e.g., Lepanto, 1571; Vienna, 1683).
Join the spiritual battle to stop ISIS. Please pray the Rosary every day, and include in your Rosary the intention “for the defeat of ISIS and for the conversion of its members.”
Recently, Bishop Oliver Dashe Doeme of Nigeria was praying before the Blessed Sacrament and asking Our Lord how to combat the horrific terrorist attacks of ISIS affiliate, Boko Haram upon the people of his diocese. Suddenly, Jesus appeared to the bishop with a sword in his hand. When Jesus handed to sword to the bishop, it turned into a Rosary. Jesus repeated three times: “Boko Haram gone.” This confirms that it is heaven’s directive that we battle and defeat ISIS through the power of the Rosary.
In this worldwide expression of prayer and unity, please add your name as a sign of your commitment to pray the Rosary daily to defeat ISIS. Let us entrust the spiritual defeat of ISIS to the most powerful intercession of Mary, the Spiritual Mother of all peoples and the Mediatrix of all graces.
