Accra, 02 June, 2020 / 5:30 am (ACI Africa).
As Catholics across the globe joined Pope Francis Saturday, May 30 to pray the holy rosary to conclude the liturgical month of the Blessed Virgin Mary, a Cleric in Ghana has urged Catholics to pray for Mary’s intercession for an end to COVID-19 pandemic in the West African nation and in the whole world.
“We have to run to our Mother Mary through the intensive praying of the Rosary, which is the greatest Marian Prayer,” Fr. Nimorious Kwabena Domanzing said, describing the holy rosary as “an efficacious prayer” and that “many people have testified to having benefited by praying the rosary.”
Speaking during the virtual Marian Rally Saturday, May 30 at St. Francis of Assisi parish, in Ghana’s capital Accra, the member of the Society of African Missions (SMA) noted that the month of the Blessed Virgin Mary “is a wake-up call for us that in the midst of COVID-19, we need to intensify our prayers by constantly praying the rosary every day for Mary’s intercession.”
Fr. Nimorious who is the parish priest of St. Francis of Assisi also highlighted some of the benefits Christians can obtain from reciting the rosary.
“One obtains interior peace; another obtains unity in the family; another is healed of an illness; another is able to resist temptation; another finds a home; another is able to find employment; another obtains spiritual progress; another has her children return to God; (and) another finds solutions to her problems – all because of praying the Rosary,” the Ghanaian-born Religious Cleric said.
