Dears friends in Christ,

We are experiencing a global humanitarian crisis caused by the Coronavirus. The Pandemic has stopped all our plans and desires to give us a time of deep reflection. This moment in history causes a change in our lives that mobilizes us to react.

The Pope, as regards this reality, calls us with a clear and precise call: heal the world. As humanity, we need to turn our eyes to God, trust in his infinite mercy and ask for his assistance in healing the wounds of humanity.

We need to heal not only the wounds caused by this pandemic, but also all the illnesses that have hurt us recently: the economic inequalities, the plight of the poor, the environmental abuse against our own Common House.

How can we answer this call?

Through our prayer. It is the most powerful way to let the Lord to transform our heart and open ourselves to take care of others.  As the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network, we want to announce an initiative that we have been working on to respond to the vocation of service that this reality awakens in us. We prepare a new Rosary to pray for all those who were affected by the coronavirus pandemic and for any other kind of illnesses. It is called Crisis & Health Rosary, whose contents were written by the Vatican COVID-19 Commission.

The Crisis & Health Rosary.

This rosary wants to strengthen our prayer for the world. In each mystery, we will hear real testimonies related to the COVID-19. These are life experiences that invite us to reflect on the Gospel, lit up by the reality we are going through.

The Crisis & Health Rosary can be downloaded for free as an eBook in EPUB, MOBI or PDF format from the website And it will soon be available on Amazon Kindle and Google Play Books.

This new material will be also launched for the free app Click To Pray eRosary on October 7, day of our Lady of the Holy Rosary. You can download it totally for free for iOS and Android in five languages: English, Italian, French, Portuguese and Spanish.

Please share this Rosary and respond like this to the Holy Father’s intention: “Reflect and work together, as followers of the healing Jesus, to build a better world full of hope for future generations”.

Happy Rosary Month,
International Team
