Massive prayer campaign supports Pope's visit to United Kingdom

Catholic World News - August 17, 2010

The Catholic relief group Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) has announced that its benefactors have responded generously to a call for prayers for the success of Pope Benedict’s pastoral visit to the United Kingdom in September. The drive has netted pledges for 31,000 decades of the Rosary and 130 hours of Eucharistic adoration. Responding to a particular appeal to offer a Mass stipend to a priest in a needy country, ACN said that 11,000 Masses will be offered for the Pope’s intentions.
