Today's intention: For all the poor, the homeless, and the economically distressed.

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 11 intention: For all the poor, the homeless, and the economically distressed.

On this day of the Rosary Relay, we travel to Belgium, to be with the Virgin of the Poor. This is the name Our Lady gave herself when she appeared to the visionary Mariette Beco in Banneux.

She would appear to Mariette a total of 8 times in 1933,  beginning on January 15 and ending on March 2.
