Global Prayer Marathon
May 1 - May 31
Pope Francis has called for a global prayer marathon for the entire month of May, praying for the end to the pandemic. Thirty Marian shrines from around the world will take turns leading a daily live-streamed rosary at 12 p.m. (EST) on all Vatican media platforms. Each day has a different prayer intention related to the pandemic. The pope will open the month-long prayer May 1 and conclude it May 31. The list of shrines and prayer intentions can be found here.
