Pope Francis is encouraging Catholics to pray the Rosary in their family homes during the month of May, especially when the Pandemic is making us aware of the value of our families and making it possible for us to pray together in lockdown at home. The Pope encourages simple Rosaries, and joining online Rosary initiatives to pray to Our Lady for deliverance from Covid-19 and has composed two prayers for this intention.You are invited to join in an initiative that follows on from the Pope’s request, the Pentecost Sunday National Rosary Rally, from 9.00am to 9.00pm across Scotland England and Wales. Our Diocese has been asked to pray a Rosary Hour at 12.00noon and you are warmly invited to take part. It does not matter what time during the specified hour that the Rosary is prayed. At 9pm the Rosary Rally will end with a Rosary being led by Bishop John Keenan from St. Mirin’s Cathedral in Paisley. Please see more details on the website.
