The Rosary Network is a New York-based nonprofit initiative to spread worldwide the devotion of daily praying and meditating upon the Holy Rosary, following Our Lady of Fatima’s message (*). Our mission is to revive the Rosary of Mary in the 21st century.
We meet Jesus Christ through the Blessed Virgin Mary, as the mystery of the Wedding at Canna taught us.
Today, we are hosting the #1 daily Rosary podcast on Apple and Google smartphones as well as on Spotify, Overcast, and Anchor, and four other platforms. As of December 12, 2020, Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, The Rosary Network’s prayer was daily followed in 91 countries as well as the 50 states of the Union. [Update: as in March 2021, the number grew into 102 countries].
The video version of the podcast is broadcasted every day at 7:30 pm ET on YouTube.
In this pandemic and economic downturn, we implore Our Blessed Mother, Queen of Heaven and Earth, to intervene in the global health crisis. We invoke the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.
This world apostolate was founded by Catholic laypeople in the New York area in January 2020. It is led by Spanish-American CEO, EdTech entrepreneur, and journalist Mikel A., under the guidance of faithful Catholic priests, such as Fr Miguel Bernal, from St. Roch Parish in Greenwich, Connecticut. We follow the teachings of the Catholic Church reflected in the Catechism, trying to spread worldwide the merciful love of Jesus and the maternal care of the Virgin Mary.
Our first Rosary online was streamed in New York on March 21, 2020, in the midst of the COVID pandemic. Since then, the Virgin Mary gave us the grace to pray Her Most Holy Rosary every single day, for eleven months without interruption. As Fr Miguel Bernal said, “this is a work from Above”.
We organize and promote Rosary meditation and prayer events (currently, all of them online), along with educational activities. An example is the Resources section on this website, along with our daily comments and the ebook “The Rosary: A Gift From Heaven”.
Anyone is welcome; no pre-requisites, economic contributions, or donations are required. What we need is your prayers and creative effort to spread the devotion to the Holy Rosary and proclaim the merciful love of Jesus to every single human being.
We need to be a Rosarian to be Marian, and Marian to be Christian.
In his apostolic letter Rosarium Virginis Mariae (2002), St. John Paul II wrote: “The Church has always attributed particular efficacy to this prayer, entrusting to the Rosary, to its choral recitation and to its constant practice, the most difficult problems”.
As Sister Lucia, last Fatima seer, said: “There is no problem, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot solve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary.”
The Holy Rosary is for everyone; it brings the grace and mercy of Jesus Christ and Immaculate Mary and opens the door to Heaven!
Hail Mary Most Pure,
Conceived Without Sin
Ave Maria Purísima,
Sin Pecado Concebida
(*) In Fatima, Portugal, the Mother of God made a call for a renewed fidelity to prayer and penance–which basically is the message of the New Testament. The requests of Our Lady of Fatima were essentially three: daily pray the Rosary–including the Fatima prayer after each mystery–, make sacrifices and penance for the conversion of sinners, and follow Jesus’ wish to establish devotion to Her immaculate heart.
Four decades later, In Garabandal, Spain, Our Lady of Mount Carmel asked to lead good lives, make many sacrifices, give much importance to the Eucharist, and visit frequently the Blessed Sacrament.
At The Rosary Network, we try to abide by these requests from Our Lady.
