WHY 5 MILLION ROSARIES?
One of the most incredible abilities God has given the human person is the ability to dream. We are able to look into the future and imagine something better than today, and then return to the present and work to make that richly imagined future a reality.
More than 200 years ago, a small group of people had a dream. They dreamed of freedom. They dreamed of a nation where all are created equal. They dreamed of a better, richer life, full of happiness and opportunity. They lived for this dream, fought for this dream, and died for this dream.
Amidst the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, we have lost sight of this dream. Today in America we have bigger houses, but smaller families. Better technology, but worse connection. Fully-loaded cars, but empty churches. More education, but less common sense. We strive for peace, but violence is rampant. We have more kinds of food, but a greater spiritual hunger. We are quick to judge, but slow to love. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. Something is wrong, isn’t it? Something needs changing.
The truth is, there’s no group of people in America in a better position to change things than Catholics. And one of the most effective ways we can change things is through prayer. If the 72 million Catholics in America came together and prayed, something incredible would happen.
That’s why we are asking people all over the country to join us in praying 5 million rosaries for America! The rosary is an incredibly powerful prayer. It has the power to bring peace. The power to heal. The power to transform your life, the lives of your loved ones, your community, and our nation.
