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.
