COMPASS OF FAITH
We would like to extend the opportunity for all Crusaders, to participate in an event which has been titled "Compass of Faith".
The idea was born from past efforts made using the Saint Benedict Medal and the Miraculous Medal, to rid our cities of places such as abortion clinics, porn shops, strip clubs and the like.
In the early 1990's a strip club was allowed to be opened in a section of our city called little Italy. Although the people of the neighborhood did not care for it and put up a small fuss the club went up anyway and remained up for some 10 years appx. In 1992 a blessed medal of Saint Benedict was taken to the location of the strip club (around 3 or 4 in the morning when people were asleep) and thrown on the roof asking Saint Benedict to see to bringing down this filth. Roughly a month later the entire neighborhood [where this place was located] became very agitated that this place existed in their area. They formed a group within themselves, put their money together, and hired an attorney. They took the strip club to court to have it closed and won. The owner was forced to close his "shop" and as time went on he ran into one legal trouble after another. He tried to open the same type of club in another location but kept running into legal snags which prevented him. Eventually , and I don't recall the details, but he was barred from ever being allowed a license to open such a place again in the whole state itself.
Another instance of Saint Benedict and the Miraculous Medal at work was when an abortion clinic opened its doors in our city. This was UNACCEPTABLE! The blood of innocent souls being slaughtered in our town could not go on. The Saint Benedict Medal and the Miraculous Medal were brought to the abortion murder mill and in the North, South, East and West sections of the building the medals were buried in the ground. Once again the Holy Virgin and the powerful Saint Benedict answered and answered in such a way that not only was the abortion doctor barred from performing abortions due to technicalities and permit issues, but in the end he went to jail and had his license permanently revoked from ever performing abortions again. The abortion murder site was closed roughly one year after it opened and thankfully due to all the complications of permits and technicalities a very few number of babies were killed. It would have been our hope that no babies were murdered but the place was closed down quickly and never reopened.
More recently our hometown has become plagued with gunfire and murders which have increased from an annual average of 5 to 10 murders a year to (July-mid-year) 79 murders this year so far alone.
The thought occurred to us, to do for our city what was done with the abortion clinic, strip club etc. To bury in the ground at the North, South, East and West points of the city the Miraculous Medal (for conversions) and the Saint Benedict Medal (to drive out evil and as St. Benedict has done in the past, to keep it from entering back in).
While considering this it also occurred to us that this is not limited to our city alone but could be done by all Crusaders who wished to do so as well for their own city or town.
We will be purchasing a large quantity of Saint Benedict Medals and Miraculous Medals which the Benedictine Fathers have so graciously agreed to bless. Attaching a special blessing to the Saint Benedict Medals specifically.
We will be purchasing these medals from donations which have been made to the Crusaders so NO DONATION is asked nor will be accepted if you wish to receive these medals for this intention.
If you are interested you can email me with your address and the medals will be sent out to you as soon as we get them back from the Fathers. If you have any questions such as how to figure out the perimeters of your town or city or any other questions I will give you my phone number or if it is international I can call you if you are unable and the details can be worked out that way. I can not answer questions via email as it is simply to time consuming but I will answer via phone.
