At the end of his parish missions, Saint Louis-Marie urged Christians to pray the Rosary to obtain the grace of perseverance. At the end of the Montfortian Year for Europe 2020, we want to persevere in prayer for the future of the Continent and of the Montfortian mission in Europe by praying the Rosary together via Zoom on every first Monday of the month.
In this initiative, entitled “Rosarium_Montfort_EurHope”, the soloists will pray the first part of the Ave in various languages and the rest of the participants will complete the Ave in Latin. One or several images of our communities in Europe will be shown at the beginning of the Rosary to know and support one another in prayer. At the conclusion of the Rosary and before the final blessing, we will pray the inspired prayer to the Virgin Mary for Europe, composed by Saint John Paul II.
When: The first Mondays of the month in 2021:
04/01; 01/02; 01/03; 05/04; 03/05; 07/06; 05/07; 02/08; 06/09; 04/10; 01/11; 06/12.
