I am hoping we can all take a pause in school work today at 2:00PM to come together as a community to say the rosary. Pope Francis is encouraging us to do this. Teachers – please do your best to communicate this to your students.
Please read below.
Pope encouraging Catholics to pray rosary together on Feast of St. Joseph
“I make my own the appeal of the Italian bishops who in this health emergency have promoted a moment of prayer for the whole country. Every family, every faithful, every religious community, all united spiritually tomorrow (March 19) at 9:00 p.m. (4 p.m. Eastern time for the Washington, D.C., area) for the recitation of the rosary, with the Mysteries of Light. I will accompany you from here.
“Mary, Mother of God, Health of the Sick, leads us to the luminous and transfigured face of Jesus Christ and to His Heart. We turn to her with the prayer of the rosary, under the loving gaze of St. Joseph, custodian of the Holy Family and of our families. And we ask him to guard our family, our families, in a special way, in particular the sick and the persons taking care of the sick: the doctors, the men and women nurses, the volunteers, who risk their lives in this service.”
That would be at 2:00 p.m. Mountain Time on March 19th, the Solemnity of St. Joseph, for example.
Peace and blessings,
