Knights of Columbus Press Release:

Knights of Columbus and their families (and friends) around the world will unite under the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe to pray the Rosary of Guadalupan Love on Sept. 8, the Universal Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
“On Sept. 8, we will pray the rosary for Our Lady’s intercession for unity and peace,” said Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson. “We will pray that the new evangelization will cause the Culture of Life to flourish on all continents and among all people, and that Our Lady of Guadalupe intercedes with her Son to guide our councils in their charitable work.”
The Rosary of Guadalupan Love will be prayed in the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City, Sept. 8 from 9-10 p.m. (ET). It will be broadcast throughout the Western Hemisphere on EWTN at that hour.  This special worldwide rosary is being organized by the Knights of Columbus, the Archdiocese of Mexico City and the Institute of Guadalupan Studies in observance of the bicentennial of Mexico’s independence.
The event honors Our Lady of Guadalupe as the “Shield and the Patroness of Our Liberty” and as the Mother of the Civilization of Love.
The Rosary of Guadalupan Love is designed to connect the messages Our Lady of Guadalupe gave to St. Juan Diego with the seven sacraments of the Church and the Church as the sacrament of salvation.

“The message of Our Lady of Guadalupe is a message that reflects the great commandment of our Lord to love our neighbors as ourselves (Mt 22:39),” the supreme knight said. “It is a universal message of reconciliation, healing and unity. This event will unite in prayer all Knights and their families, and all dioceses of the Church throughout the world.”
The intention of the Rosary of Guadalupan Love is to celebrate Our Lady of Guadalupe’s role in uniting the hemisphere and her important role in building a Civilization of Love.
