Stadiums Full of Rosary Praying Pilgrims

October 8, 2011, at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington DC, tens of thousands of pilgrims will gather to pray the Rosary for Peace. 
Fr James Kelleher, SOLT, has on various occasions, filled stadiums around the USA with tens of thousands of people praying the Rosary while adoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.  This was the case in 2005 at the Dallas Cotton Bowl, in 2008 at the Kansas City at Royals Stadium (see video below), and will be the case on October 8th of this year at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington D.C.  In each case the Rosary is prayed for peace, and as a living sign of the communion of the universal Church it each hail mary bead is prayed by a person from a different country in their own native language and responded to in English.


In the Diocese of Arlington in preparation for the the October 8th event, the Eucharistic Family Rosary Crusade has distributed over 100,000 miraculous medals so far. The medal was originally called the Medal of the Immaculate Conception. However due to many answered prayers, conversions and cures, it eventually became known as the "Miraculous Medal." When you wear it, the Virgin Mary prays for you and with you to Jesus!


If you and your family would like to become pilgrims next month, to pray to our Blessed Mother for peace, please visit the website of the Eucharistic Family Rosary and sign the pledge! You can also stay up to date with the latest news by liking them on Facebook or following them on Twitter.
