The Mission Rosary is prayed like the usual Rosary, with the same opening and final prayers. Introduce your decade for Africa with these reflections, and, if you wish, read a story from the selection below to focus on during your prayer. 

‘An angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Get up, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt…” They went to Egypt by night and remained there until the death of Herod.’

– Matthew 2:13-15

Our Prayer for Africa

We pray for the people of Africa: that those who are oppressed, persecuted and live in fear may be
safe and feel the comfort of God’s presence.

May the Church heal wounds, build bridges and bring the hope, love and peace of Christ to all those who suffer.
