Several organizations are coming together to promote a campaign to unite people worldwide in praying the rosary for the success of World Youth Day.

Launched by Family Rosary International, it is not only for the young but also for people of all ages, everywhere.

Holy Cross Father James Phalan, director of Family Rosary International, said it is a simple call to people all over the world to join in prayer of the holy rosary for World Youth Day each Saturday from the beginning of May until the event, August 16-21 in Madrid.

Pray with your family, pray with a parish group or pray in solitude at whatever time you would prefer, knowing that you are united in prayer with people on every continent, he said at Massachusetts May 11.

Father Phalan said such a campaign was required as “we are now only a few months from an event that will bring together more than a million pilgrims, most of them young, to celebrate and give living witness to our faith.

Since the first World Youth Day 25 years ago, the event has become a very important opportunity to awaken and deepen faith for young people around the world.

This year’s World Youth Day can be a great moment of grace for the new evangelization of people all over the world.

What could be more important than uniting the Church throughout the world in prayer to invoke the Holy Spirit and his gifts for World Youth Day, asks Father Phalan.

Jesus himself had said that prayer can move mountains, he added.
