SPOTLIGHT: ILLINOIS ORGY—ROME CONNECTION premieres Monday, Sept. 20 after Catholic Info Hour at 7 PM ET
National Rosary rallies continue to sweep the world.
In October of last year, more than a million Catholics gathered along Poland's borders to beg Our Lady's prayers for their country and for the world.
Poland's display of faith has sparked similar prayer rallies globally — in Ireland, Britain, Australia and elsewhere — with tens of thousands of faithful gathering on shores and borders to pray the Rosary.
Bishop John Keenan of Paisley, Scotland credits God with inspiring this movement: "It now is an event of the whole Church that has taken on a momentum of its own and is really going ahead of us in the strength of the Holy Spirit."
Now, the wave is coming to America's shores.
On Oct. 7, the Rosary Coast to Coast campaign will unite Catholics across the U.S. and beyond in prayer for the soul of the country wracked by moral decay and spiritual decline.
Catholics will gather along American coasts and borders, in churches, as families, in front of state capitols or in front of computer screens to view the live-stream of the National Rosary Rally at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.
Less than two months after the initiative was announced, more than 250 prayer sites across the country have already registered, with the hope many more will join, lifting up their hearts and voices to Our Lady of the Rosary to turn back the moral tide of the nation.
Organizers of local Rosary events are encouraged to register their events on Rosary Coast to Coast's website.
