The Annual Global Rosary Relay for Priests
The Annual Global Rosary Relay idea is a simple one: in that each of the 60 participating shrines prays a particular mystery of the Rosary at a particular half hour on the day in thanksgiving to God for our priests and to implore the protection and loving care of Our Lady, Mother of all priests, for all her priestly sons. With the coming of midnight on the 27th June 2014, the entire world, by then, will have been encircled in prayer for our priests on this The Annual Rosary Relay Day.
It was the great Irish priest Fr. Patrick Peyton who never tired of saying that: 'The Family that prays together stays together.' As the family of the Church, you are invited to join our prayers to the prayers of millions throughout the world on 27th June 2014. It is an opportunity for us to raise our hearts to God for all priests in the exercise of their ministry; that they will be blessed, through our prayers, with God's grace for their priesthood; that in this worldwide communion of prayer for them, they may experience our gratitude and support; and finally that they will persevere in unity with Christ and his Church and shepherd the Lord's flock to the safe pastures of his Kingdom.
"I am happy to support and highly recommend the current initiative of The Worldwide Rosary Relay. I believe it has great potential and will bring many spiritual benefits to all involved". --Michael Neary Archbishop of Tuam, Ireland (Episcopal Advisor to Worldpriest)
Raymond Cardinal Burke will join in praying the Mysteries of the rosary from the Vatican in union with the Annual Global Rosary Relay for priests. He writes: Be assured that I will offer my praying of the Holy Rosary for the sanctification of priests. The sanctification of priests is a daily intention in my prayers, and, therefore, I am happy to participate in this global prayer for priests.
