Faithful in Argentina are gathering on Zoom each day to pray the Rosary for victims of COVID.
In a message sent July 28, Pope Francis has offered his blessing to a group that meets every day on Zoom to pray the Rosary for people affected by COVID-19.
“Thank you very much for praying the Rosary,” the Bishop of Rome told them. “To you and to all the friends of Entretiempo, I send you a cordial greeting and my blessing.”
Entretiempo is based in Argentina. The group began praying the Rosary each day in June for those suffering from CPVID. What began as a gathering of some 100 people quickly became a group of 200.
On July 27, Rodrigo Fernández Madero, the organizer of the initiative, sent an email to Pope Francis explaining how, every day for the past two months, the group has been meeting online to pray the Rosary together for all those fighting against the pandemic.
Less than 24 hours later Fernández had a reply message, with a photo of a handwritten note in which Pope Francis offered his blessing and encouraged them to continue.
Dear brother, Many thanks for your email. Many thanks for praying the Rosary. To you and to all the friends of Entretiempo, I send a warm greeting and my blessing. Keep going! May Jesus bless you and the Holy Virgin care for you.
