Masses are celebrated daily at the Basilica. Each year the Mass Intention Book is opened the second Monday of October. Intentions are taken for the following calendar year. We only accept one intention per Mass. Additional intentions that we receive are sent to monasteries and parishes where they do not have many requests for Masses. We ask that each individual family only request three Mass intentions per year, and this way we can accommodate more pilgrim’s requests for Masses to be said here. We have three daily Masses, four Masses on Saturday, and seven Masses on Sunday.

Catholic tradition tells us that the Rosary was given by the Blessed Virgin Mary in 1214 to Saint Dominic (Santo Domingo de Guzmán), the founder of the Order of Preachers or Dominicans. The word rosary comes from rosarium, meaning a garland of roses. This prayer is a mantra like recitation of Our Fathers and Hail Marys that is used as a vehicle for meditating on the mysteries of Our Lord’s life. From the institutionalization of the rosary by Pope Pius V in 1569 until 2002, the rosary contained fifteen mysteries each consisting of the recitation of one Our Father, ten Hail Marys, and a Glory be. The mysteries were divided into three categories: Glorious, Joyful, and Sorrowful. Pope John Paul II in 2002 added five optional mysteries under the heading Luminous to the rosary. We pray the Rosary twice every day at the Basilica. In the morning we recite the rosary at 11:00 A.M., and in the afternoon at 4:00 P.M. Please make an effort to come into the peaceful atmosphere at the Basilica and meditate on the events of Jesus’ life.

The Chaplet is recited at 3:00 P.M. daily at the Basilica. This devotion was started by Saint Mary Faustina Kowalska, a Polish sister of the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy, as a result of some visions of Jesus. She had these visions around 1935 in Vilnius, present day Lithuania. It is a rosary based prayer that is about a third the length of a five mystery rosary. Saint Faustina encourages the Chaplet as a prayer for mercy, a prayer to trust Christ’s mercy, and a prayer to show mercy to others. We invite you to make time during the hour of mercy, which reminds us of the hour of Jesus’ death, and come pray with us.
