The Rosary Whirlwind Mission for October culminates in the National Rosary Relay Rally across the British Isles this Saturday (October 31), the Eve of All Saints.
The rally takes place from 9am to 9pm, as Rosary holy hours travel around the dioceses, and we are invited to participate in our parishes and homes.
“I want you to know that in this kind of warfare, the battering ram has always been the Rosary”St Dominic
The mission then culminates on Sunday (November 1) – the Feast of All Saints – when Bishop John Keenan will lead a thanksgiving Rosary from St Mirin’s Cathedral, Paisley, at 8pm.
The designated hour for the Diocese of Middlesbrough is from 7pm to 8pm, when Bishop Terry will lead the Rosary from St Mary’s Cathedral.
Bishop Terry says…
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known
that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help,
or sought thy intercession,
was left unaided.
This beautiful prayer to Our Blessed Lady is especially comforting at this time of the pandemic. As we join together in this Rosary Whirlwind, we can have real confidence that our Blessed Mother will hear our prayers and grant our petitions as she enfolds us with her cloak of compassion and love.
The intentions for the Rosary are for Faith, Life and Peace to prevail in our nations.
“Our Refuge for these times are the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary,” say the organisers.
“We will be praying for the spiritual wellbeing of the British Isles and for its preservation from decadence, adversity and war.
“We will also be praying for our Church and Gospel vision, for the conversion of our peoples and for their protected from evil, danger and sickness and the deliverance of our Isles from the cover-19 global pandemic.”
