A Rosary to obtain from God, by the intercession of the Queen of Peace, the gift of peace.

Pope Francis will lead the Rosary on May 31, at 6 pm Rome time, noon EST, to ask God for the gift of peace. On May 29, he asked families to join him in this prayer to the Queen of Peace.

After praying the midday Regina Caeli on the feast of the Ascension, he said:

The day after tomorrow, last day of the month of May, liturgical feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, at 18.00 in the Basilica of Saint Mary Major we will pray the Rosary for Peace, linked up with various shrines in many countries.

I invite the faithful, families, and communities to join in with this invocation, to obtain from God, by the intercession of the Queen of Peace, the gift the world awaits.
