Circular 2011/24: A Million Roses for the World

August 22, 2011

Memorial of the Queenship of Mary

Dear brother priests, religious men and women and Catholic laity:

The Archdiocese of Lingayen-Dagupan will participate actively in the rosary campaign entitled “A Million Roses for the World”, a campaign among Filipinos living in the Philippines and in other parts of the world to pray the rosary from October 7, 2011, Memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary, until May 31, 2012, Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

For each and every day within the prayer campaign, a nation will be prayed for by rosary praying Filipinos. The assigned for each day may be downloaded from www.millionrosesfortheworld.org. I encourage our Catholic faithful to join this rosary prayer campaign – Filipinos at Prayer, Peace for All Nations!

In particular, I wish to encourage everyone to participate in “One Point One on Eleven Eleven”. It is a campaign to pray one million one hundred rosaries all over the Catholic schools, colleges and universities nationwide at eleven o’clock in the morning on the eleventh of November this year twenty eleven (11 am on 11-11-2011). This will be a good occasion to animate our youth to love this beautiful prayer of the Church.

The rosary is the life of our Blessed Lord from the eyes of His Blessed Virgin Mother. This campaign aims to teach our youth that prayer can change the world and people who pray can change the destinies of peoples. Indeed  there can be no world peace without prayer.

From September 1 until 30, the enclosed prayer of commitment for the rosary campaign must be prayed in all Masses within the Archdiocese of Lingayen-Dagupan before the Post Communion Prayer. I encourage the parish priests and school directors to reproduce copies of this prayer so that the Catholic faithful can join every time it is prayed.

The schools and parishes  must animate and prepare their respective Christian communities for the simultaneous rosary praying on November 11, 2011 at 11:00 am.

Let us campaign together to make every priest, religious and layperson in the Archdiocese of Lingayen-Dagupan a prayerfully pious child of Mary whom we lovingly venerate in Manaoag. I invoke the blessings of God upon you all.

Sincerely yours,

+SOCRATES B. VILLEGAS

Archbishop of Lingayen-Dagupan
