Global Rosary Relay for Priests this Friday

Members of the Children's Rosary in
Naples, Florida USA to Participate
The Children's Rosary has been invited to participate in this years Global Rosary Relay for Priests.  This is held on June 12th which is the World Day of Prayer for Priests and the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Beginning in Siberia every 15 or 30 minutes a Rosary is led at a different shrine for the sanctification of priests.  Over 100 Shrines will be participating from over 50 countries.  Pope Francis has even taken a time slot and will be praying as well in the Vatican.  He has granted an Apostolic blessing to those that participate in the Global Rosary Relay that day.

This year members of the Children's Rosary have been asked to participate in this day of prayer for prists by unifying prayers with those being said in the shrines across the globe. As rosaries will be said in succession one after the other, sometimes with beautiful overlap, the children can review the schedule and choose when they would like to join in with prayer.  Some of our Children’s Rosary groups such as those at St. Thomas Becket Parish in Cheshire Connecticut USA, St. Augustine Parish Lagos Nigeria,  St. Mary's School in Pontiac Ilinois USA, St. Gabriel of the Sorrowful Mother in Avondale Pennsylvania USA will be meeting as a group and unifying prayers with the Shrines.  Indeed it is our hope that children will be an integral part of this years Global Rosary Relay for Priests.  
Some of the members of the Children’s Rosary have even written about their enthusiasm to be a part of something so far reaching which helps their shepherds. The letter below is written by Abigail pictured above holding her little brother.  She and her siblings are part of our Children's Rosary at St. Mary's Church in Pine Bluff,  Wisconsin USA.

We would like to humbly extend an invitation to all children and adults to participate in this years Global Rosary Relay.  Our priests give so much of themselves and without them we would not have the Sacrifice of the Holy Mass.  Please take an opportunity to thank them and let them know of the bounty of prayers going up for them this Friday.
