Bishop Alan Hopes of the Diocese of East Anglia encourages his parishes to make their way to the coa
“I commend wholeheartedly the national prayer initiative Rosary on the Coast. Our parishes are encouraged to make their way to a location on the coast, and to say the Rosary in union with Catholics around our country’s shores, for three purposes: the renewal of the faith in this Dowry of Mary, a greater recognition in our culture of the sanctity of human life from conception until natural death, and finally for peace for our country and the world, in a time of great instability.
Mary has always been for us the source of our hope and the cause of our joy, for it is from her that we received the Saviour, the Light of the World, whom the darkness cannot overcome.
I hope a great many of you will have the opportunity to take part in this timely initiative, to prove the truth of that promise Our Lord once made: “Where two or three are gathered in my name, there I am in their midst.”
