Pray the Rosary with Pope Francis Today

Join Pope Francis in praying the Rosary on Saturday May 30th at 12:30 pm our time for an end to the Covid-19 pandemic.


Pope Francis is once again urging all of humanity to pray together for divine help during the coronavirus pandemic.  The Pope will lead the recitation of the Rosary from the Lourdes Grotto in the Vatican Gardens.

The event takes place under the title: “Devoted with one accord to prayer, together with Mary” (Acts 1:14). It is organized by the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization.

The Decades of the Rosary will be recited by men and women representing the various categories of people who have been particularly affected by Covid-19. These include a doctor and a nurse; someone who recovered from the illness and someone who lost a loved-one to it; a priest, a hospital chaplain, and a nun who is a nurse. Other participants include a pharmacist, a doctor, and a journalist; an Italian Civil Protection volunteer; and, a young family who welcomed a baby into the world during the pandemic.

How to participate

The event will be broadcast live throughout the world on a host of Vatican channels, with English-language commentary provided.  To participate through the Vatican News English YouTube channel: click here
