On the evening of September 30th, at the inconvenient time of 6:30pm Pacific Time (not a good time for our East Coast readers), an eleventh hour email was sent to Catholic Business Journal readers inviting participation in San Francisco Archbishop Cordileone’s innovative “Rose and Rosary for Nancy” Pelosi’s conversion of heart.
With the Archbishop seeking at least 1,000 commitments in order to deliver 1,000 roses to Pelosi’s office (one rose for each commitment to pray) on the Feast of St. Therese the next day, we had no choice but to send the message out and leave the matter in God’s hands.
To our utter surprise, response began—fast and furious—within the first 5 minutes!
And it didn’t let up for 24 hours! People are still opening the emails or visiting the website and responding.
