As planning is underway for World Youth Day 2011 in Spain, Family Rosary follows Father Peyton’s successful model of asking people to pray the Rosary for the success of the event.

Last May 1, during the Beatification Ceremony for John Paul II, the video promoting the Firm in the Faith with Mary Rosary Prayer Campaign was screened in St. Peter’s square to launch the initiative. You can view the video at: Then you can join the campaign by pledging to pray the Rosary every Saturday between now and August 21. Prayer reflections will be provided to subscribers so everyone, anywhere in the world, will be joined together praying for the success of World Youth Day.

Family Rosary has a long history of praying the Rosary for the success of an event. The founder, Servant of God Father Patrick Peyton, CSC, sought Rosary prayer support for all his worldwide Rosary Crusades dating back to the early 1940s. Recently, the ministry sought the same prayer support before its 2007 Rosary Bowl held at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

Please join us in prayer and encourage others to pray with us. As Father Peyton so aptly said … A World at Prayer is a World at Peace.

  Then, after a while, people get fed up with the absolutely rational and logical culture, and rediscover religion and the affective part of the human soul and its needs.

  And Mary is one of those.

Love and support for Pope Francis
The Church is certainly a human and historical institution with all that entails, yet her nature is not essentially political but spiritual: the Church is the People of God, Holy People of God making its way to encounter Jesus Christ. Only from this perspective can a satisfactory account be given of the Church's life and activity.

  Christ is the Church's Pastor, but his presence in history passes through the freedom of human beings; from their midst one is chosen to serve as his Vicar, the successor of the Apostle Peter.

  Yet Christ remains the center, not the Sucessor of Peter: Christ, Christ is the centre.

A Million Roses for the World
A gift of love, faith and goodwill from the people of the Philippines. Pope Pius IX once said: “Give me an army praying a million rosaries a day and we will conquer the world.” We are not out to conquer the world…but to save it for God to whom it rightly belongs.
