In the Gospel of John, 19:25–27, Mary is recorded to have been at the foot of the cross when Jesus was crucified. She lived and trusted God with her full heart, despite the ultimate sacrifice of her Son, Jesus.
We can follow Mary’s example of obedience with the recital of the daily rosary.
CCSJ & AMMR are calling on all Catholics concerned about the well-being of our society to start with the daily recital of the rosary.
CCSJ & AMMR have developed one of a kind rosaries inspired by our collective call to pray and to raise awareness to the plight of the migrant and refugee situation in Trinidad and Tobago.
You will recall that in June 2020, Pope Francis added: ‘Comfort of migrants’, ‘Mother of Mercy’, and ‘Mother of Hope’, to Mary’s titles in the Litany of Mary.
The Holy Father has also said that: “In her apparitions, Our Lady often exhorted the recitation of the rosary, especially in the face of looming threats to the world. Even today, in this time of the pandemic, it is necessary to hold the rosary in our hands and pray for us, our loved ones and all people.”
