“Each one of us can be a bridge of encounter between diverse cultures and religions, a way to rediscover our common humanity.”

~ Pope Francis


We come from many places near and far, but we are one Body of Christ.

With this rosary, we pray for unity and we celebrate the gift we are to each other in our diversity.

“I think the difference between me and some people is that I’m content to do my little bit. Sometimes people think they have to do big things in order to make change. But if each one would light a candle, we’d have a tremendous light.”
