Prayers for the Conversion of England

Filed under: Catholic News — Fr. John Larson @ 5:51 pm

You probably don’t know that the song “Faith of Our Fathers” was written by a Catholic priest and the “fathers” were those who were martyred in England when Catholicism was illegal.

And… the original version has a verse that goes like this…

Faith of our fathers, Mary’s prayers
Shall win our country back to Thee;
And through the truth that comes from God,
England shall then indeed be free.

During October, the month of the Rosary, Bishop Philip Egan of Portsmouth, England, is distributing free copies of a Rosary CD and asking the faithful to pray for the evangelization and conversion of England.
