Dear Rosary Coast to Coast Community, I am pleased and humbled to add my voice to the distinguished Cardinal, Archbishops and Bishops who have already endorsed this effort and called the faithful to generously dedicate themselves to it. We are living through days of darkness and strife which we have never before witnessed in our lifetimes and the power of the rosary is truly a weapon of love that we must all embrace more strongly than ever. The Immaculate Virgin Mary, St. Kateri, and so many women and men like them through the ages offer a model for seeking justice, peace and fulfillment which is sadly lacking in our modern world. Mary has given us the rosary as a tool with which we can join in her continuous intercession of love for all of God’s children.
I am 100% supportive of the Rosary Coast to Coast movement! Our world is in major trouble and we need to turn to the prayer that Our Lady has most insistently asked us to pray in all of her recent approved apparitions: the holy rosary. Without the rosary, we are not going to be able to slay the errors of modernism, secular humanism, atheism, and the poison of immorality that threatens entire countries and cultures. Swords slay dragons! I pray that all people of good will get involved with this movement and unsheathe the spiritual sword of the rosary!
“Thank you for your recent letter concerning the Rosary Coast to Coast and the Novena for Our Nation. I am happy to promote these important prayer opportunities in our diocese. With thanks for your dedication to the Rosary of Our Lady and wishing you many blessings, I am Fraternally yours in Christ.”
“Your letter of April 13, 2018 arrived, introducing “Rosary Coast to Coast” to take place across the USA on Sunday, October 7, 2018, the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.

Thank you for taking the time to share information concerning Rosary Coast to Coast. Cardinal O’Malley has always held a special devotion to our Blessed Mother and the rosary, confident that her intercession directs us to her Son, Jesus and our call to discipleship. We pray that an ever increasing number of faithful will turn to Mary as a means of drawing closer to our Lord. With an assurance of a remembrance in the Cardinal’s prayers for you and all whom you serve.” Click Here to Read Letter
