On July 21, 2020, nine young Tradition, Family and Property Texas volunteers traveled to Washington D.C. to join a rosary rally for the nation at the U.S. Capitol Building. The event was part of the American TFP’s nationwide campaign to return the nation to order.

The American TFP is in the process of holding Rosary Rallies at all fifty state capitals as a means of fighting against the anarchy, socialism, confusion and discouragement that is shaking the nation. Statues of Our Lady of Fatima are present at these events as participants ask her intercession.

“America has lost its way. We have rejected God and the Ten Commandments. Is it any wonder the country is unraveling?” said Evan Olwell of TFP Texas.

Texans Join DC Rally to Restore America

In spite of intense heat, all prayed fervently and with a spirit of sacrifice

The over sixty in attendance were touched by the august presence of the International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima which cried miraculous tears in 1972 in New Orleans. In spite of intense heat, all prayed fervently and with a spirit of sacrifice. “I am worried at the direction our country is going. We need to beseech God, through the Blessed Mother, to have mercy on the nation,” continued Mr. Olwell.

The rally ended with a beautiful procession

Several crimson medieval-style standards characteristic of the TFP towered over those assembled. They flanked an even taller American Flag. Bagpipers in kilts and drummers roused the little army of prayer warriors. The statue of Our Lady was protected by an honor guard of TFP members wearing a gala uniform.

Some of the TFP Texas volunteers had different reasons for praying the rosary at the US Capitol. “Our Lady promised the rosary will be a powerful armor against hell… destroy vice, decrease sin and defeat heresy,” affirmed Simon Boldy of Fredericksburg, Texas.

The rally ended with a beautiful procession. In the shade, a little oratory was then set up and all could pray privately before the pilgrim statue. While gazing upon the pilgrim virgin, the U.S. Capitol Building was directly behind her. TFP Texas volunteer John Paul Tomba summed up the sentiments of all, “The devil and the left are doing everything to destroy our country. We must fight to return America back to God.”

America must return to the Father’s house. This is the goal of the nationwide effort to return America to order. Like the Prodigal Son, He will not refuse a humble and contrite heart. May Mary, Mother of Mercy, restore America!

​Too often, the media portrays all police as monsters persecuting minorities. They also give the impression that everyone, especially black people, are anti-police. To answer the question of what people really think, 19 volunteers and friends of Tradition, Family, Property (TFP)-Louisiana took to the streets of Lafayette with pro-police signs and the rosary on July 25.

When we arrived at the corner of University and Johnston streets for our pro-police Rosary Rally, we were prepared for the worst. Many participants were uneasy about addressing such a controversial topic, fearing that we would be rejected. However, we found the support was overwhelming.

No sooner had we set up on our corner and displayed our signs than the entire intersection erupted into honks of support. It did not matter the race or background. Hundreds of Louisianans drove by and showed their support for local law enforcement. We prayed the Rosary asking Saint Michael, patron of police, to protect them so that they may continue protecting our community.

One leftist mantra declares that blacks and other minorities are against the police. We found that these groups were the most expressive of all in their support. One black gentleman laid on his horn and yelled, “My dad was a cop!” Two others had a competition who could honk the longest for the entire duration of the red light. Another gentleman drove by slowly with his window down and, visibly moved by our rally, said, “This is what we need in America right now. Thank you! Keep it up!”

At the end of the rally, everyone expressed joy for coming to the rally despite the apprehension. One lady expressed the sentiment of all when she told TFP volunteer Elias Bartel, “I was hesitant to come out today. I thought that everyone would be against us but as it turns out, almost everyone was in favor of the police!”

Pro-Police Rally, Lafayette, Louisiana

19 volunteers and friends of Tradition, Family, Property (TFP)-Louisiana took to the streets of Lafayette with pro-police signs and the rosary on July 25.

Though we returned to the safety of our homes, there are those who patrol the streets ready at a moment’s notice to make the ultimate sacrifice. Police put their lives on the line every day for our protection. They do this out of love of law and order and thus prevent our society from falling more into chaos and ruin.

They need our prayers and the most powerful intercession of Our Lady in face to the leftist narrative that portrays the police in the worst possible light. Such attacks serve to discourage police from carrying out their duties.

This action of TFP—Louisiana expresses our solidarity with our police not only out of Christian charity, but also for their role in maintaining order. If you see an officer, thank him. Pray for him. Too often the silent majority are silent. The police are those who are unappreciated, who do the incredible and face the unthinkable to protect the ungrateful. We must let our voices be heard.

​On July 17-18, 2020, members of Tradition, Family, Property (TFP)-Louisiana united with activists from around the country in Lake Charles, Louisiana. The Ruth Institute’s Third Annual Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution brought together a diverse crowd for both online and in-person presentations. Participants overcame the restrictions making travel more difficult to make the sacrifice to discuss the state of the nation’s culture war.

All attendees were eager to share strategies and network with other activists.

Summit topics included abortion, pornography and transgenderism. Participants heard the testimony of former homosexuals, mothers opposing the ‘transitioning’ of their children and parents working against radical sex education.​​

​​Dr. Michelle Cretella, head of the American College of Pediatricians, discussed at length about the medical consequences of transgenderism. Sue Ellen Browder, former writer for Cosmopolitan magazine, gave insights about how major media promote promiscuity and impurity.

Members of TFP—Louisiana shared their own stories about fighting back against the Drag Queen Story Hour held at public libraries. During the concluding activist panel, Thomas Drake, president of TFP Louisiana, presented a new video showcasing the TFP’s efforts fighting back against this effort to ruin children’s innocence. Those present gave the video a standing ovation.
