Polish pro-lifers are inviting Catholics around the world to join a global rosary initiative that launched on Sunday.
The “Rosary to the Gates of Heaven” event, which takes place Nov. 1-8, hopes to unite thousands of people around the world in prayer for unborn children.
The initiative, known in Polish as “Różaniec Do Granic Nieba,” is the brainchild of the organizers of the 2017 “Rosary to the Borders” event, when more than a million Poles prayed the rosary at the country’s borders. The gathering inspired other countries to hold similar events.
Last year, the organizers brought together tens of thousands of people for a prayer meeting known as “Poland Under the Cross.”
The rosary initiative comes amid widespread protests in Poland following a landmark court ruling on abortion.
