Men's Holy League, St Stephen's Catholic Church, Portland, Oregon; Wed, September 7th, 6.45pm

Thanks to Shawn Nola and Fr Eric Andersen for sending me details of another Men’s Holy League, this time on the West Coast.

Under the patronage of Cardinal Burke, the mission of the Holy League is to “combat the forces of evil in today’s society; the Holy League strives to call men back to the state of grace and to transforming the culture through prayer.”

It is a new, parish-based network of men inspired by the original Holy League of the 16th century, which by prayer and fasting, implored the help of God’s grace, and the intercession of His Holy Mother. By the grace of Almighty God, on October 7, 1571, at the Battle of Lepanto, the Christian fleet won a crushing victory over the Ottoman Turks, saving Christendom and western civilization.
