Pray the annual Global Rosary Relay for the sanctification of priests on the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus on June 28, 2019. We will encircle the world in prayer once again, in this effort’s ninth year, with more shrines than ever taking part in what is now recognized as a truly significant and powerful devotional initiative within the Catholic Church to recognize and bless the work of priests serving the faithful the world over.
Pray Along with CatholicMom.com!
CatholicMom.com’s own Mary, Mother of the Church online chapter of the Father Peyton Prayer Guild will pray the Rosary LIVE on Facebook on Friday, June 28 at 11:30 AM Eastern. Plan to join us!
How the Global Rosary Relay works
Each of the participating prayer locations in 70+ countries prays a particular mystery of the Rosary at a particular half hour on the day in thanksgiving to God for our priests and to implore the protection and loving care of Our Lady, Mother of all priests, for all her priestly sons. By midnight on June 28, 2019, the entire world, by then, will have been encircled in prayer for our priests on the Annual Rosary Relay day.
It was the great Irish priest Fr. Patrick Peyton who never tired of saying that: “The Family that prays together stays together.” As the family of the Church, you are invited to join your prayers to the prayers of millions throughout the world on June 28, 2019. It is an opportunity for us to raise our hearts to God for all priests in the exercise of their ministry; that they will be blessed, through our prayers, with God’s grace for their priesthood; that in this worldwide communion of prayer for them, they may experience our gratitude and support; and finally that they will persevere in unity with Christ and his Church and shepherd the Lord’s flock to the safe pastures of his Kingdom.
I am happy to support and highly recommend the current initiative of The Worldwide Rosary Relay. I believe it has great potential and will bring many spiritual benefits to all involved. Michael Neary Archbishop of Tuam, Ireland (Episcopal Advisor to Worldpriest)
