“If anyone has the happiness of being in the Confraternity of the Rosary, he has in all corners of the world brothers and sisters who pray for him.” St. John Vianney
Note: Children of communion age are eligible to enroll in the Confraternity.
Excerpt from the 1893 Encyclical of Pope Leo XIII Commending Devotion to the Rosary.
It is, therefore, to be desired that renewed zeal should be called forth in the founding, enlarging, and directing of these confraternities, and that not only by the sons of St. Dominic, to whom by virtue of their Order a leading part in this Apostolate belongs, but by all who are charged with the care of souls, and notable in those places in which the Confraternity has not yet been canonically established.
I believe that their proposal, (To unite shrines through the Rosary Confraternity) is providentially in accord with my own vision for the renewal of the Archconfraternity of the Holy Rosary, using the sacramentals that have been available to the Dominican Order for
centuries. In particular, it is my hope that the great Marian Shrines of the world, which attract so many pilgrims each year, can become focal points for the Archconfraternity, and can thus aid us in promoting and preaching Our Lady’s Rosary, for the salvation of souls. This plan, I believe, is in accord with the Holy Father Pope Francis’s emphasis on evangelization through pilgrimages and popular devotion, and also his call for Shrines to become places of dialogue and encounter.
