BOSTON — More than 80,000 people have pledged to pray the Rosary daily, with their names recorded in a book presented to Pope Benedict XVI in December.
Father John Phalen said the presentation was “a special opportunity.”
“It was an honor to present His Holiness with the book and ask his apostolic blessing on our ministry,” he said in a Jan. 3 statement.
The book contains the names of those from around the world who have pledged to pray the Rosary daily.
“There are even pledges in languages we can't understand, like some of those from India and Bangladesh,” Father Phalen said.
