Today's intention: For all doctors and nurses.

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.

Watch the Rosary live at 6 p.m. Rome time (12 noon EDT) by clicking here. The video screen at the top will go live at the designated time.


Day 18 intention: For all doctors and nurses

Today’s Rosary brings us to France, to a site especially dedicated to those who suffer illness. February 11 is the feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes. She is a special patroness for the sick, and since 1992, her feast day is the World Day of the Sick.
