We turn our hearts to Our Lady, praying today for all the deceased.

During the month of May, the Church around the world is joining in a daily Rosary for the intention of the end of the pandemic, as well as a specific intention related to the various victims of the virus.

Each day of the month, a different shrine will lead the daily Rosary, according to local practice.

The beginning and the end of the Rosary Marathon (May 1 and May 31) are led by Pope Francis.

See below to follow the list of the Shrines.

Day 1

Particular intention: For all the deceased

The first day of the Rosary Marathon will bring us, appropriately, to Nazareth — but not to the Holy Land.

We will be in England, at the only approved Marian apparition of the country.

Interestingly, this shrine is a window into Our Lady’s home in Nazareth. Find the story below:
