The Luminous Mysteries Prayed by Thousands in Response to Pope’s Invite
Today, in the feast of Saint Joseph, thousands of Filipinos around the globe joined the live Rosary broadcast from the Manila Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. This is in response to an invitation by Pope Francis to pray the Luminous Mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary seeking the intercession of the Holy Mother of God to intercede for us in these difficult times of COVID-19.
The prayer intentions include:
- Those serving in the front line, medical workers, hospital staff, security team, and church and government leaders
- Countries greatly affected by the crisis: China, Italy, Iran, and South Korea, etc.
- Families and love ones protection, and that the Holy Spirit may open our hearts in solidarity especially the poor
- Souls of those who have died
If you have been told by someone that the Holy Rosary is not biblical and is a prayer of vain repetition. Check out my post to defend the Holy Rosary against the claim that it is “vain repetition”.
The prayer lasted for 26 minutes with at least 10,000 participants excluding those who are on TV and radio. Many thanks to TV Maria for making this live rosary accessible for us who do not have TV and Radio access. Let us support them in any way we can! Doing so, we unite ourselves in the mission-to proclaim the Gospel to all corners of the world-that our Lord Jesus Christ gave to the Church.
Let us serve Christ and the Church in all circumstances!
