Archbishop Jose Gomez of Los Angeles, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), led a 'virtual rosary' Wednesday with several other bishops, asking Mary to intercede for the United States.
Twelve U.S. bishops prayed the glorious mysteries on Oct. 7, the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, live on the USCCB's Facebook and YouTube pages.
The bishops called on Mary to intercede for the country, particularly in the face of current events including the COVID-19 pandemic, violent riots and unrest, and the upcoming presidential election. In the video, Bishop Gregory Mansour of Brooklyn offered some of the bishops' intentions and ended the rosary by singing a small Marian hymn.
