  • Description

    THE CATHOLIC "CRUSADE OF THE ROSARY IN THE FAMILY" REACHED RIO DE JANEIRO LAST WEEK AND 500,000 BRAZILIANS TURNED OUT FOR THE RELIGIOUS CEREMONY. THE CRUSADE IS THE IDEA OF AMERICA'S FATHER PATRICK PEYTON AND IS BASED ON TWO CONCEPTS: "THE FAMILY THAT PRAYS TOGETHER", AND "THE WORLD THAT PRAYS IS A WORLD OF PEACE".

    FATHER PEYTON IS AN ENGLISH-BORN MINER WHO WENT TO THE UNITED STATES AND WORKED IN THE COAL MINES. LATER, WHILE STUDYING IN A RELIGIOUS SEMINARY, HE WAS STRICKEN WITH TUBERCULOSIS. HE MADE A VOW THAT IF HE WAS CURED QUICKLY HE WOULD WORK TOWARD UNITED FAMILIES THROUGHOUT THE WORLD THROUGH PRAYER. SOON AFTERWARDS AN EXAMINATION SHOWED HE WAS FREE OF TUBERCULOSIS.

    SINCE THE INCEPTION OF THE CRUSADE IN 1945, FATHER PATRICK PEYTON HAS CARRIED HIS RELIGIOUS DRIVE INTO 46 COUNTRIES WITH GREAT SUCCESS. THE PROGRAMME IS NOT RESTRICTED TO ROMAN CATHOLICS ALONE. ITS SPONSORS POINT OUT THAT THE MAIN POINT OF THE CRUSADE, NO MATTER WHAT THE RELIGION BE, IS THAT THE FAMILY SAY THEIR PRAYERS TOGETHER.
