VATICAN CITY, JUL 25, 2006 (VIS) - On Saturday, July 29, the Feast of St. Martha, all those wishing to do so may participate in the traditional praying of the Rosary in the Vatican Gardens.
According to a communique made public today by the Vicariate of Vatican City State, a torchlight procession will wind through the Gardens praying the Rosary, the five Mysteries dedicated to the Blessed Virgin of Czestochowa, of Guadalupe, of Fatima, of Lourdes and of la Guardia. The procession will conclude with the singing of the "Salve Regina" before the image of the Blessed Virgin of Mercy.
As in earlier years, the communique reads, the cloistered order of Poor Clares, who live in the "Mater Ecclesiae" Convent founded in Vatican City by John Paul II in 1994, will join participants at the end of the Rosary through a Vatican Radio linkup.
