Rosary Coast to Coast was blessed in 2018 with over 1,200 registered locations participating from all 50 states across the country; quite literally from coast to coast and border to border. Anchored by the 3rd annual National Rosary Rally in front of the US Capitol in Washington DC, Rosary rallies took place along coasts and borders, at state capitols, in parks, on beaches, along busy streets as well as outside and inside Churches and Shrines; with most praying the Rosary as requested simultaneously across all time zones on October 7. 56 countries on 6 continents joined together with the US as the New Holy League of Nations in organizing Rosary rallies across their nations the weekend of October 7th, making it a truly worldwide prayer campaign.
In 2019 rosary Coast to Coast will return on Sunday, October 13th, the 102nd anniversary of the Fatima Miracle of the Sun. This year a second pillar is being added with Rosary rallies encouraged to be preceded by Eucharistic Devotion: Adoration, Processions, 40 Hours Devotion or a Rosary Congress. Nearly all of the international partners in the New Holy League are expected to also organize their Rosary rallies on October 13th incorporating Eucharistic Devotions.
Fr. Richard Heilman, President of Holy League and author of the reflections accompanying the prayers of the 54 day Novena writes: “In the event of Fatima, the request for reparation is persistent. The Angel (St. Michael) calls to sacrifice and prayer ‘for the reparation of sins by which [God] is offended.'” Cardinal Raymond Burke calls us to action: “The calamities in our times merit all of these prayers and please be as generous as you possibly can in praying for the needs of our nation and of our world and of the Church as she is called by our Lord to be his Mystical Body; to be his bulwark for the truth and love of God in our world. May God bless this Holy endeavor and may He inspire you to be fully part of it.”
Letters have been sent to over 275 US Bishops informing them of these 2019 prayer campaigns and requesting their support and endorsement.
