Today's intention is for all communication workers.

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 8 intention: For all communication workers

On this day of the Rosary Relay, we go to Pope Francis’ homeland, and to his beloved representation of Mary, Our Lady of Lujan.

The image is a 15-inch clay figure of the Immaculate Conception, adorned in sky blue and white. She was created in the 1600s, and tradition states that she “chose” to stay with the people, as the oxen that were to carry her to another site refused to move.
