It’s Official. I Can No Longer Update the Website.

I have shared that yahoo would discontinue the use of their sitebuilder tool and the date was supposed to be 3/31/21. Well, I was able to use the tool until yesterday. Again today it doesn’t work. So it looks like you will have to come to this blog if you are interested in updates and/or prayer counts.

The website still works exactly the same for all of you. I just cannot update the pages that I would normally update on a daily or weekly basis.

So bookmark the blog or follow it if you are interested in updates.

We are very close to our current revised goal of 500,000 rosaries prayed. That’s a pretty big moment! Thank you all for your prayers and support of the site and its mission.

God Bless,

Bill

Happy Easter!

He is risen. He is risen indeed!

When I lived in Titusville, FL working with homeless veterans our priest started every Easter Mass with the line above. He would say… “He is risen”. We had to respond with “He is risen indeed!” We continued until the priest decided we had finally gotten it right. His method was definitely effective. Every Easter my first thought when I wake up is… He is risen. He is risen indeed!

We are almost at our latest goal of 500,000 rosaries prayed. I think when we reach that goal we can make the second to last goal be 750,000. The ultimate goal of 1,000,000 rosaries has not changed. I’m just trying to be realistic because the site was first published on 1/20/2008 so it will have taken us over 13 years to officially reach 500,000.

I know Laudate asked permission to publish the audio rosaries and many use the app to pray. At least one other published the audio rosaries on YouTube. Maybe some of those prayers never made it to the prayer count. That’s okay. Our Blessed Mother and her Son Jesus know exactly how many rosaries have been prayed since this site was first published. That’s more than good enough for me!

I was 48 when I started the site. I’m now 60. Still a good chance I’ll get to see us reach the ultimate goal of 1,000,000.

Thank you all for your support of the site and its mission. Please continue to share it with your friends and acquaintances.

Again, Happy Easter to all. May you all have a very blessed day.

Site Still Updating

I shared several times that Yahoo announced I would no longer be able to update http://www.scripturalrosary.org after 3/31/21. So I started using the blog to post updated numbers and messages and I think it is working out just fine. That said, I still have been able to update the website using the Yahoo tool that is not supposed to work. I’ll keep trying to update at the website and blog until the day the tool really quits working. Perhaps Yahoo decided to give us all a grace period.

Even if/when the tool no longer allows me to make changes remember… you should always be able to visit the site alone if praying a rosary is the purpose of your visit. That isn’t changing. the blog will remain available for those that like to see the numbers and any new messages.

Also, at the top of the blog or in the menu bar on your phone all of the audio rosaries are available if you like to pray with Melissa or me.

Thank you all for your patience and support of the site and its mission.

God Bless,

Bill

Only Two Days Remain!

I have reviewed the entire site several times but that doesn’t mean I didn’t miss something. If you see something that doesn’t work or is misspelled please let me know. I won’t be able to change it effective 3/31/21.

Before you report an error, please refresh the page first. Sometimes that is necessary to get the new page to display instead of the one saved on your computer.

Thank you!

Yahoo Ending Website Support

Yahoo announced that no updates will be allowed to websites after 3/31/2021. I only update a few pages each day and so far, everyone has told me I would need to build the website from scratch so I’m testing to see if I can provide a link to this blog and update the information daily at the blog without having to recreate a new website. Stay tuned. I’ll keep you posted. Thanks again for your support of the site and its mission. God Bless – Bill

Got questions. Call me. I’m happy to answer all questions before we get started.

Feedback from A Visitor

Fidel De Vera – Gresham, Oregon…  Let’s continue to pray that those who prayed when the Covid-19 pandemic started will persevere. It’s disheartening to see the drop in numbers from April and May… Seeing the drop, I started praying all four mysteries each day with hope that people continue to pray more each day.

Answer: Thanks Fidel.  There were a few groups, the Knights of Columbus and some other church groups that prayed often in large groups during May, a month traditionally devoted to Mary.  But I’m with you all the way on this.  It was great to see some really big numbers for the last 4 months! Thanks to all for your continued support of the site and its mission! – Bill

One more thing.  I do advertise on Google.  The average cost per click is only $0.07.  So if you want to help with reaching more people searching on Google… a $5 donation would pay for 71 clicks!  It doesn’t take much if you want to help the site reach more people.

Prayer Count Increases Dramatically

I can’t say for sure why the prayer count has increased so dramatically since March but I have a strong suspicion that the CoronaVirus and people staying at home or unable to work probably has a lot to do with it. Before March, a monthly count of 4,000+ was good. The count in March was 6,897, a new record which was quickly eclipsed in April with 10,859 rosaries prayed. Yes, it looks like May, a month traditionally devoted to the Virgin Mary will set a new record as we are at 7,121 rosaries prayed through 5/14/20.

Thank you all for your support of the site and its mission. A special thanks to those that have organized groups to pray together. Please continue to spread the word. May God bless you all and keep you healthy and safe!
