Bishops say ‘Rosary for America’ Oct. 7 imperative for a country in crisis


Worshippers pray the rosary prior to the annual Rosary for Life Mass Oct. 1, 2020, at Resurrection Church in Brooklyn, N.Y. Rosary for Life, founded in Brooklyn in 1992, is an international prayer association with lay members in 27 nations who commit to reciting the rosary to pray for an end to abortion and for the defense of all human life, from conception to natural death. The U.S. Catholic Church observes October as Respect Life Month. October is also dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary. (CNS photo/Gregory A. Shemitz)
