In accordance with my call for daily Prayer of the Holy Rosary to pray for global deliverance from the Coronavirus pandemic, to pray for those who are sick and those who have sadly died, and to give thanks to Almighty God for the dedication and self-sacrifice of our front-line emergency workers and other key workers, I invite you all to join in a live-stream of the Holy Rosary direct from a member of the NCCUKI Clergy’s private Chapel or study each day at 6pm BST.
You are all invited to join in: will it be possible to have a Rosary Circle that spans the entire world?
The pattern will be:
Mondays and Thursdays – the Joyful Mysteries
Tuesdays and Fridays – the Sorrowful Mysteries
Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays – the Glorious Mysteries.
The Prayers will be recited in Latin, but the Fatima Prayer after each Decade will be in English. There will be a brief meditation on each Mystery from Fr Patrick Peyton, well known as “the Rosary Priest”.
On Mondays until Saturdays, following the Rosary, the Holy Sacrifice of The Mass will be live-streamed (Latin, Missale Romanum of 1962). There will be a pause between the Rosary and the start of Mass whilst the Celebrant vests; the live stream will stay on during this time so that you may make your private preparatory prayers before Mass before the “virtual Altar”. You are most welcome to stay online to hear Mass each day.
On Sundays, the Holy Sacrifice of The Mass will be live streamed at 11am BST, and following the daily Rosary at 6pm there will be Benediction.
The live streams – Rosary and Mass or Rosary and Benediction – will be on the NCC United Kingdom and Ireland Facebook Page (fb.com/NCCUKI) each weekday from just before 6pm or each Sunday from just before 11am starting on Tuesday 14th April 2020. I will arrange a rota between myself, Bishop Michael and Fr Simon OSMC to officiate and host the live stream. However, the live stream of Mass each Sunday morning and of the Rosary and Benediction each Sunday evening will be from my Chapel.
Unfortunately the technology is not at the moment available to us to be able to hear the responses of anybody else who is taking part: but that does not matter, Almighty God is able to hear all of us as we make our prayers to Him.
May God’s Blessings be with you, and may you all stay safe and well.
