Motto: „Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight!” (Mathew 3,3)
The Live Rosary Pilgrimage was organized for the first time in Vienna in 2003. The idea of the pilgrimage came from Father Andreas Schätzle, organizing in 2003 a series of pilgrimages around Vienna preparing for a local mission. Following the example of Vienna, the pilgrimage was organized in Budapest in 2007, and since then in several localities in Hungary.
The Via Mariae Transylvania Association, the Transylvanian Cursillo and parishes from Miercurea-Ciuc organized for the first time the Live Rosary Pilgrimage in the autumn of 2012. During the pilgrimage we pray the rosary around Miercurea-Ciuc, embracing the city with prayers and songs. The pilgrimage serves to the spiritual development and enrichment of the participants. It is an excellent opportunity to get to know each other better, to visit the churches and shrines in the town and to present the communities of local parishes. Pilgrims can come both individually and organized to the starting points below:
Why do we pray for?
V We pray for our town, for all its inhabitants and families in the town and its surroundings. We pray for you too!
V We pray for the falling of those walls that keep the inhabitants of the town away from God, from each other and from a happier life. Through this peaceful, joyful, and prayerful meeting we make a step toward each other, the world, and the church of Jesus. This town and its surroundings is our home, the pilgrimage helps us to meet each other and Jesus!
V We pray for the leaders of our town and country, for the spiritual, moral and religious renaissance of the people of our country.
How can you participate?
V We organize the Live Rosary Pilgrimage in Miercurea Ciuc twice a year, in spring and autumn. Those interested will be informed in time about the date of the pilgrimage at the parishes and in the local media.
