What is the Cenacle Rosary?
Father Stefano Gobbi founded the worldwide Catholic movement, the Marian Movement of Priests following a private revelation he reported in 1972 at the shrine of Our Lady of Fatima. This inner voice urged him to gather other priests who would be willing to consecrate themselves to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and be strongly united with the Pope and the Catholic Church. Fr. Gobbi started to hold prayer cenacles in Italy for priests and laity, and later held prayer cenacles all over the world. (The Cenacle is the room where Jesus and the 12 Disciples, our first priests A.D., met for the Last Supper.) During the Cenacle, Catholics are called to pray to Jesus through Saint Mary, since it was through her that the Church, the Body of Christ, was born.
In the late 1990’s, by request of the Archbishop Donoghue of the Archdiocese of Atlanta, his dream was for every parish to pray weekly the Cenacle Rosary. This Rosary is said specifically for our Priests to honor our Mother’s request, which is to continually pray for our Shepherds and to pray the Rosary faithfully for them, as this is the greatest weapon to man.
