Torchlight procession in Mary’s house

In the Basilica of the Annunciation, a torchlight procession gathers the faithful to pray the rosary. Through the media, prayer now reaches out even farther.

On Saturday night, in Nazareth, some lights still illuminate the city where Jesus grew up. Near the Basilica where the angel’s Annunciation to Mary took place, the faithful recite the Rosary in a torchlight procession.

Presided by the warden of the basilica and with the presence of the local Franciscans, the procession carries the image of Our Lady of Nazareth. While carrying the candles, each mystery of the rosary is recited by the faithful in a different language, such as Arabic, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese.
