Today’s intention: For all consecrated men and women.

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 29 intention: For all consecrated men and women

For today’s Rosary Relay, we travel to the troubled country of Lebanon, a place much in the heart of the Holy Father.

The Harissa Shrine is considered one of the most significant Marian shrines in the world.

The focal point is a giant 15-ton bronze statue, which is 8.5 meters high (approximately 27 feet) with a diameter of five meters (about 16 feet). The Virgin Mary extends her hands toward the capital city of Beirut. The statue is on top of a hill 650 meters (almost 2,000 feet) above sea level. 

Learn about Our Lady of Lebanon and a 2nd beautiful devotion to her in Lebanon below:
