Rosary of Reparation in Little Rock, Arkansas
On August 15th, the feast day of Our Lady’s Assumption into heaven, nearly 300 Catholics gathered in front of the Arkansas state capitol to take a stand against the devil and his nefarious works. This large-scale effort was made possible on extremely short notice due to the generous financial support and prayers we received from friends of America Needs Fatima.
Armed with rosaries and holy water, surrounded with signs, banners and bagpipes, and with Our Lady of Fatima as their general, they stood in peaceful protest and reparation against the horrifying event scheduled for the following day. These Catholics were there to ask pardon for the terrible display that would occur the very next day at the same spot. In contrast to the beautiful statue of the Queen of Heaven, the Satanic Temple would be parading a 9-foot tall statue of the demon Baphomet, with a young boy and girl at his side staring up at him, beguiled and fascinated.
Those assembled to offer reparation ranged in age from infant to elderly. Many were local, but others traveled from surrounding states, knowing that what affects one affects us all, and that silence will only allow for the spread of more evil. Buses carrying over eighty people traveled seven hours from Topeka, Kansas. These generous souls came from several parishes in Kansas, and others were from our Kansas calling center, volunteering for America Need’s Fatima’s Public Square rosary campaign. One woman traveled all the way from Australia.
As soon as their signs came out, even before the rosary started, they received many honks of support. Overall, they received a very positive response, other than a few unpleasant passersby and one loud “Hail Satan” from a driver. If he had known how many extra prayers he would get, he probably would have kept silent!
After the Rally, Mr. Jose Walter Ferraz, along with a family from Arkansas, delivered the online petitions gathered in support for the Ten Commandments Monument against the Satanists, with over 25,000 signatures, to Governor Asa Hutchison.
All of us here at America Needs Fatima – and I am sure Americans everywhere – are deeply grateful for those who lent their generous financial support to this effort. We could not have organized such a large-scale event on short notice without their help! May Our Lady bless abundantly all those whose prayers and support made this Rosary of Reparation possible.
The Satanic Temple and its Scandalous Statue
For the first time in American history, Satanists brazenly paraded their 9-foot-tall, one-ton demon Baphomet statue to the Arkansas State Capitol grounds and unveiled it near the 10 Commandments monument. They also requested a court-ordered placement of the statue right next to the monument.
The Satanic Temple claims its August 16th event was about "religious freedom." In fact, they even called the event: "The Satanic Temple's Rally for the First Amendment." Many of the signs displayed by participants made their intent clear. Some examples were “Support Religious Pluralism” and “Religious Liberty for All.”
Satanism is not a religion. Satanists worship no god, only hating God and His glorious creation. In the days leading up to August 16th, the Satanic Temple led a demonic procession – a type of sinister, multi-state caravan – with its idol of Satan in tow, getting Americans accustomed to the devil. Whether we realize it or not, that is what is at stake here: our Christian identity as a nation.
The media was out in full force to cover this event. Had it not been held in mid-August, the gathering might have been mistaken for a Halloween gala due to the dark and “goth-like” costumes worn by participants.
According to another press report, the statue was purposely designed to "have a functional purpose as a chair where people of all ages [especially children it seems] may sit on the lap of Satan for inspiration and contemplation." (NewYorkCBSlocal.com, 1/6/2014)

After showing the vision of Hell to the three children in Fatima on July 13, 1917, Our Lady said, “You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.”
As seen in the photos above, Satanists are actively working in America to convince our youth that Satanism is just another option among many. To oppose this, we must do what Our Lady of Fatima requested and propagate devotion to Her Immaculate Heart and devotion to her Holy Rosary.
May Our Lady of Fatima and Saint Michael defend us in battle.
