Shrines around the world link up for recitation of the Rosary

Join the daily live broadcast of the recitation of the Holy Rosary in link-ups with Marian shrines around the world, as part of the May marathon of prayer called by Pope Francis.

“Guided by Shrines around the world during this month of May, we recite the Rosary to invoke an end to the pandemic and the resumption of social and work-related activities.” (Pope Francis, General Audience, 5 May 2021)

As part of an initiative promoted by the Dicastery for the New Evangelization, the Marian prayer of the Rosary unites 30 Shrines around the world.

Below is the list of Shrines where the Rosary is prayed each day at 6:00 p.m. (CET), with links to watch live, or afterwards on demand.
