Italy – May 31, Marian prayer in Italy’s Shrines

The Italian Bishops’ Conference ha announced that on Wednesday 31 May, liturgical memorial of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the ecclesial communities will gather in the Marian shrines present in the diocesan territory for a moment of prayer in preparation for the XVI Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops and place it, together with the work of the General Assembly of Bishops, under the special protection of Our Lady.

The prayer will favour the participation of the different ecclesial vocations (lay, priestly, consecrated life).

The National Liturgical Office has prepared a booklet (in ITALIAN) with a proposal for the celebration.
