In response to the Holy Father's heartfelt wish, the month of May will be dedicated to a "marathon" of prayer, to ask for the end of the pandemic, which has afflicted the world for more than a year now, and to ask for the resumption of social and work activities. Pope Francis wishes to involve all the Shrines around the world in this initiative, so that they may become vehicles of the prayer of the entire Church. The initiative is being conducted in the light of the biblical expression: "Prayer by the Church was fervently being made to God" (Acts 12:5).
Each day a different shrine from around the world will host the praying of the Rosary and each day there will be a particular intention relating to the pandemic. Click below to see the list of shrines and intentions for each day of May.
If you would like to join each shrine online, go to the link of Vatican YouTube Channel below.
