Vatican Newspaper Proposes 24-Hour Worldwide Rosary For Peace

VATICAN CITY, MARCH 21, 2003 (Zenit.org).- The L’Osservatore Romano newspaper highlighted an invitation for believers worldwide to pray the Rosary in the next 24 hours for peace in Iraq.

Today’s daily edition of the Vatican newspaper stated that the beginning of military operations in Iraq is “the time to intensify prayer to the Queen of Peace so that she will intercede before her Son, the Prince of Peace.”

The proposal comes on the day that Iraqi Catholics and Christians are preparing to consecrate their country to the Blessed Virgin, “Queen of Peace,” in St. Joseph’s Cathedral, Baghdad.
