Pope Francis has announced a ‘marathon’ month of prayer throughout May with the aim of ending the Covid-19 pandemic, month will involve 30 Marian shrines, which are dedicated to the Virgin Mary, across the globe which will encourage worshippers to pray.

Catholics will tell you that they 1). do not worship Mary, and 2). that they don’t pray to Mary. So starting May 1st, Roman Catholics around the world will follow their leader, Pope Francis, in uniting around 30 shrines of the ‘virgin Mary’, asking her, Mary, to bring an end to the COVID pandemic.

“The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.” Jeremiah 7:18 (KJB)

The closing prayer at the end of the Catholic rosary says “Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve, to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.” That is absolutely praying to Mary, that is absolutely worshipping Mary, and that is absolutely idolatry.

POPE FRANCIS DECLARES THAT MAY IS THE ‘MONTH OF MARY’, COMMANDS ALL CATHOLICS EVERYWHERE TO ‘ENTRUST THEMSELVES’ TO HER FOR PROTECTION

Month of prayer will be held in May and involve 30 Marian shrines across world asking Mary to cure COVID

FROM DAILY MAIL UK: The Pope has encouraged Catholics around the world to dedicate next month to praying for the end of the virus which has seen more than three million people die.

The month will involve 30 Marian shrines, which are dedicated to the Virgin Mary, across the globe which will encourage worshippers to pray, reports the official Vatican News website.  ‘The initiative will involve all the Shrines of the world in a special way, so that they might encourage the faithful, families, and communities to recite the Rosary to pray for an end to the pandemic,’ the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization said in a statement.

The Pope, who has faced criticism over his reluctance to wear a face mask, will open the month of prayer on May 1 with a holy Rosary online broadcast. For 31 days, the recitation of the Rosary from the various Shrines taking part in the month of prayer will be broadcast by Vatican News with the hope of ending the pandemic.

The global death toll from Covid-19 has surpassed 3 million, with the latest million virus casualties coming in just three months. Meanwhile, the number of cases has soared to more than 141 million. Pope Francis will close ‘marathon’ month with another specially-broadcast prayer. The move comes after the Pope marked Easter Sunday with an address with called for vaccines to be shared with poorer countries. He also said he prays that the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions will be lifted soon.

‘Dear brothers and sisters, once again this year, in various places, many Christians have celebrated Easter under severe restrictions and, at times, without being able to attend liturgical celebrations,’ he said. ‘We pray that those restrictions, as well as all restrictions on freedom of worship and religion worldwide, may be lifted and everyone be allowed to pray and praise God freely.’

Last month, the pontiff marked a second Palm Sunday during the pandemic and warned ‘the Devil is taking advantage of the crisis to sow distrust, desperation and discord’.

The pontiff traditionally leads a Palm Sunday procession through St Peter’s Square in front of tens of thousands of pilgrims and tourists clutching olive branches and braided palms before celebrating an outdoor Mass.

But as the Pope did last spring, just weeks after the Covid-19 outbreak erupted in Italy and the country became the epicentre of the European epidemic, he led the solemn service that begins Holy Week inside St Peter’s Basilica. READ MORE

When you contribute to this fundraising effort, you are helping us to do what the Lord called us to do. The money you send in goes primarily to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations. All this is possible because YOU pray for us, YOU support us, and YOU give so we can continue growing.

But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 15,860+ people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 150,000+ followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 15,900 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
