The rosary will begin at 5:30 p.m., Rome time and will be live-streamed. Shrines around the world will participate, including the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C., Our Lady of Guadalupe, Our Lady of Fatima, Our Lady of Lourdes, San Giovanni Rotondo, and Our Lady of Pompei.
Most Marian shrines have been closed due to the pandemic, causing pilgrimages to be cancelled. Some have reopened partially, like that of Lourdes. This prayer is a way to unite them all on the eve of Pentecost.
