Today's intention is for all the elderly.

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 9 intention: For the elderly

On this day of the Rosary Relay, we are in Jesus’ childhood home, but not in the Holy Land. We are at the Shrine of Loreto, in Italy.

It was here that Pope Francis signed his exhortation to youth, Christus Vivit.

According to tradition, angels transported Mary’s house to this site in Italy.
