The largest sanctuaries on the five continents will be connected online.

The pope will pray at the replica of the Lourdes Grotto in the Vatican Gardens and will be joined by men and women representing people particularly affected by the virus. The prayer will be streamed live to the world from the Vatican gardens on the Vatican News YouTube channel.

Fr. Richard Gibbons, Rector at Knock Shrine, will pray the rosary in the Apparition Chapel at Knock, where His Holiness spent time in quiet prayer during his visit to Knock in 2018. The rosary will be streamed live on the Knock Shrine website.
