Worldwide Rosary campaign for Year of Faith

Catholic World News - May 15, 2012

The Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples and the Pontifical Mission Societies will launch a worldwide Rosary campaign for the Year of Faith, which commences on October 11 and concludes on the Solemnity of Christ the King in 2013.

The Pontifical Mission Societies announced the campaign during a meeting with Pope Benedict on May 11. During his address to the societies’ directors, the Pontiff said that he was “very pleased to encourage the project of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples and the Pontifical Mission Societies in supporting the Year of the Faith. This project provides a worldwide campaign, which, through the prayer of the Holy Rosary, [will] accompany the work of evangelizing the world and for many of the baptized to rediscover and deepen the faith.”

    We need a nationwide prayer (Rosary) and fasting campaign to overthrow the HHS mandate and overcome attacks against the practice of our faith.
