Father Carlos Cabecinhas, rector of the Shrine of Our Lady of the Rosary, will present the bouquet in a solemn and beautiful ceremony on May 13, 2020 and October 13, 2020 in the Chapel of Apparitions in Fatima, Portugal. A counter has been created for Catholics who want to contribute to the spiritual bouquet. It’s a simple process. Just enter your prayer commitments here, click “Submit,” and the balance grows.

Father Chris Alar, MIC, director of the Association of Marian Helpers, sent a clarion call for the spiritual bouquet, urging Catholics to commit to praying five million Rosaries. “We are living in times of great suffering where many have lost hope,” said Father Alar. “Evil abounds and families are struggling. But this is not the time to give up!”

“In hope, let us follow the request of Our Lady to ‘continue to pray the Rosary every day because only she can help us (by the grace of Jesus Christ),’” said Connie Schneider, president of Children of the Eucharist.

The International World Apostolate of Fatima (WAF) is releasing information about the Global Spiritual Bouquet via the websites and in seven languages to more than 130 member nations.
