Rosary Crusade for October
Archbishop Eamon Martin has called for a “Family Rosary Crusade against Covid” during the month of October. Families throughout Ireland are encouraged to pray the Rosary each day during October – or even one decade of the Rosary – for themselves, their loved ones and for all those whose health or livelihood is being seriously impacted by the coronavirus crisis. “These past six months have reminded us of the importance of the “domestic Church” – the Church of the sitting room and kitchen! It has highlighted the vocation of parents as the primary teachers of faith and prayer in the home and family.” Spread the word online using the #FamilyRosaryCrusade or #OctoberFamilyRosary and feel free to send in a picture with this hashtag or a short sound clip of your family saying a “Hail Mary”, “Our Father” or “Glory Be”! “Cling to the Rosary as the creeper clings to the tree – for without Our Lady we cannot stand” (St Teresa of Calcutta).
