It is compatible for use by all women during regular or irregular cycle, breast feeding, post-partum, pre-menopause or after discontinuing contraceptives.

      • Catholics Matter 85: Manny Yrique

        from Diocese of Phoenix / Added

        On this edition of "Catholics Matter," Fr. Rob Clements welcomes Manny Yrique to the program to discuss the Rosary for the United of America, a new effort started by him and his business partner Jack Ahern of Magnalite Catholic. (http://www.magnalitecatholic.com/usa_rosary.html) Yrique said he designed the Rosary for the United States of America through prayer, often waking in the middle of the night to compose the intentions. Each of the five decades has a designated intention. The first three decades are prayed for the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government. The fourth decade is dedicated to state and local governments as well as police and fire fighters. The fifth decade is devoted to U.S. military personnel. The Rosary for the USA is not a political statement, Yrique said. He’s not praying for a particular candidate to win the upcoming election or for any political party’s success. He’s simply praying for the United States — its leaders and populace.
