Frances Chesterton Rosary League
Please send me more information on this prayer initiative.
A new initiative of the Society of Gilbert Keith Chesterton, the Frances Chesterton Rosary League is a global association of local Rosary groups committed to praying the Scriptural Rosary for the needs and intentions of the Society of Gilbert Keith Chesterton, for conversions, and for vocations.
Frances Chesterton was the quiet, shy Victorian lady married to G.K. Chesterton for 35 years. She preferred to keep herself in his shadow. She supported him in his every need, she prayed for him and the work he accomplished. She regularly consulted with Father John O’Connor, the Roman Catholic priest upon whom Chesterton modeled his Father Brown character, in matters of faith, spirituality, prayer, and perseverance.
This Rosary League, named in honor of Frances Chesterton’s support for her husband, offers spiritual support for the Society of Gilbert Keith Chesterton. In these Rosary prayer groups, united in purpose and focus, we ask the powerful intercession of the Blessed Mother Mary for the work and welfare of both the Apostolate and the benefactors who generously support it.
