In his video message, Archbishop Socrates Villegas of Lingayen-Dagupan has asked the faithful to pray the rosary for peace, healing and forgiveness of sins.
“On October 18, 2023, I am appealing to all of you to come together to pray the rosary. Millions and millions of children all over the world to pray the rosary for world peace, for world healing, for the forgiveness of the sins of the world,” – said Bishop Villegas.
To gather the children and adults to pray the rosary for peace and unity in the world, ACN will once again hold the prayer initiative with young people face to face three years after the occurrence of the COVID-19 pandemic.
