Global Rosary Marathon for the Month of May 


Pope Francis invites Catholics and Marian Shrines around the world to dedicate the month of May to a marathon of prayer for an end to the Covid-19 pandemic. Catholics across the globe are encouraged to dedicate the Marian month of May to praying for an end to the pandemic. The initiative involves 30 Marian Shrines from various parts of the world.  It takes place under the theme “The whole Church was fervently praying to God,”  

which recalls a verse in the Book of Acts (12:5).
