Vatican City, Apr 21, 2021 / 14:00 pm
The Vatican has announced a rosary initiative dedicating the month of May to prayer for an end to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization said April 21 that “for the deep desire of the Holy Father, the month of May will be dedicated to a prayer marathon with the theme ‘Prayer to God went up incessantly from the whole Church.’”
The council said that the world’s Catholic shrines would be involved in a special way as promoters of the rosary among Catholic individuals, families, and communities.
Thirty of the shrines will take turns leading a daily live-streamed rosary at 12 p.m. Eastern time, the council said.
