The Global Rosary Relay aims to have 1 billion Hail Marys said for the sanctification of priests June 28, the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
"This is the world family all joining together as one on Friday and praying for the sanctification of our priests," Global Rosary Relay founder and organizer Marion Mulhall told CNA June 27.
With prayer locations in more than 70 countries this year, the relay is carefully timed with the recitation of the rosary every half hour.
The relay begins with the joyful mysteries in South Korea and then is passed off to Russia for the luminous mysteries, followed by the sorrowful mysteries in China before continuing on to India, Vietnam, the United Arab Emirates, Uganda, Israel, and many other countries across Europe and the Americas.
